2009-10-26 - Rose Bowl Red, Ultraviolet Blue submitted by John Shipp

(written 10/26/09; posted 10/29/09)
I needed so much to receive all that I got last night. I was so, so pleased to be there, right where I was, and to be with my son and my friends, hearts close together.

As for Larry, Adam, Edge and Bono, I was the very most moved by their countenance at the end of Where the Streets Have No Name, when they were positioned very closely together onstage – closer than I have ever seen them playing onstage before. Bono directly behind Larry, Edge slightly forward of the drums and Adam right on Larry's left. Such a beautiful moment, I don’t know why, but I could barely breathe. I was shaking, literally, and wondering how, how, how, how, how, how, how can this one song still be pouring so much immense emotional fuel into my soul after all these years... and will I ever get to hear them play it again live? That SONG. It was that song that astounded me the most 4 years ago @ Staples Center, when it sent that inexplicable roar through the arena; that growing, frightening, joyous, sustained tsunami of a roar about 3/4 of the way through the song -- no one knew it was coming, and the band were clearly unprepared for the sound of it.

But yesterday during WTSHNN, it wasn't the sound, it was simply the closeness that moved me, the physical proximity of them being near each other. I loved seeing them that way. And I will never ever forget what it felt life to see them drinking in the achievement of this tour together, of playing for 97,000 people (+ the world) in the flush of yet another successful record at an age of life when no one else is still breaking ground, yet they seem to be actually growing!

The friendship is the best thing that they offer to the world. I rejoice in the friendship that they share.
