These are just tidbits that seem silly to include in the overall gushing:
-The couple in front of us made out for the ENTIRE SHOW. Not just pecks and smooches, no no no, full-on open-mouth kissing non-stop for two hours. TWO HOURS. I would have overlooked some smooching on the slow songs...but who makes out to "Beautiful Day"? What a complete and total waste of two tickets. They had to have spent at least $200 (but then the guy looked a bit of a schmuck, so he probably paid way more than that to impress the girl...), and for their $200 (or more) they spent the entire show with their tongues down each other's throats. They should have just bought the "Best of" cd's and stayed at home on the couch.
-A woman behind us had made her own concert shirt. No need to reread, you read it right the first time. Her own shirt. With little red stripes, sort of like the ones on the cd, and a little suitcase with a heart, like the last tour, and some wobbly writing in WHITE PUFF PAINT. PUFF PAINT. I just had to say it twice, it's so funny.
-At the very end, the woman behind me started going berserk and screaming about her undying love for Bono. I had to cover my ears...the same ears that had been subjected to massive sounds of rock 'n' roll without any hint of hurting. I wanted to let her know that while he is quite lovely and all of us love him a little bit too, he is also married and happily so from all accounts and really she was just embarassing herself. Because he sure didn't hear her, nope, just me. Me and the twenty people around her, cringing and covering our ears. She also yelled really loudly after the lights came up: "Where was 'With or Without You' ?!" And I told her it was at the "Elevation Tour." See how bitchy I can be when annoyed?
