"I was reading about Jack Kerouac smoking a bag of grass and praying, literally, for a vision of a language or a way of writing that would be both precious and trashy. That's what I'm aiming for." — Bono



by Michel van Swieten

What can I see? This was my 19th U2 show during the years and I saw them play in different countries, but for me it was the first U2-homecoming concert in my life! For my gf and best friend it was the first U2 concert ever. What can you say about a debut at a homecoming. And what a concert!! To travel 36 hrs for a flight in, a show, a short night and the flight back to Holland, it was worth every eurocent! We bought our tickets with u2.com and we were on the cusack stand. There is really nothing to complain about the show. Snow Patrol was great and U2 proved to me that they are the very best band on the whole planet! Every song was ok, offcourse there were some misslines for Bono, and maybe they didn't connect with the 82,000 as expected, but the stadium, the light, the sound everything was ok for us. This is a show we will never forget for the rest of our lives! Now up to the 15th of july for the Amsterdam show! Even if that show will be half as good as in Dublin it will be a marvelous gig!

greetings for Holland, Michel and Ria
