"Date night," is how a source described their attendance.Sunday Bloody Sunday New Year's Day Bad Pride (In The Name Of Love)Where The Streets Have No Name I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For With Or Without You Bullet The Blue Sky Running To Stand Still Red Hill Mining Town In God's Country Trip Through Your Wires One Tree Hill Exit Mothers of the Disappeared I was 7th row in 1987 at Three Rivers Stadium, tickets purchased through my U2 World Sevice membership, cutting my classes at IUP to see the lads on a weekday in Pittsburgh. Last time 2015 in Chicago GA, but elbow room tough for the vertically challenged in yours truly, the better half, and especially my 9 year old. Hi, I'll be at the Pittsburgh concert--so excited--and this will be the first I've done general admission for a U2 concert. For those more experienced--what is the best entrance gate and when does the line start forming???? Saw them when they last played in pittsburgh and cant wait to see them again.‘No ordinary 30 year old record…' Some days Harry Kantas works for Twitter in Dublin, some days he travels the world to watch his favourite band play live. That’s partly because the kind of music that inspired The Joshua Tree is timeless, deeply rooted in the heartland of America, places like Tennessee, in fact.U2 frontman Bono gave a shout-out to Belafonte and Rushdie, one of several moments during the show when he addressed the crowd to recount his own memories of playing New York's The Ritz as a young punk band in the '80s and of his mother, Iris, to whom he dedicated the song of the same name, a track from the band's latest album, .

The Edge was awarded the Les Paul Spirit Award a few hours back at a tent near the "Which" Stage. Bono has been singing the "maybe the time is right" bridge for New Year's Day on this tour. I'm having difficulty locating anyone in the crowd not singing or jumping along, from the inside of the pit, to the very back of the field, to the VIP hill area. As with every performance of Exit, I remember every millisecond of it, but have zero words to describe the state I find myself in.

I believe last time that was played, it was the pre-War Tour, in late 1982, early 1983. The end of Pride is a transition to the main part of the show. The massive screen behind them, showing short films by Anton Corbijn in 8K, is simply stunning, and sets the mood perfectly. If you were near me, I may have been speaking in tongues, and fighting off an exorcist. I bet this song would have made the cut for the original Joshua Tree Tour setlist.
