So where does all music come from -- be it hip-hop or rock 'n' roll? I don't know. But I do know that all music is praise. It's praise to the god of your making. Which, in the case of a rock star, might be oneself. Or a woman. Or an idea.-- Bono, 2004

This is the third time I saw U2 on this tour. I must say it was quite different from Seattle and Vancouver. I had an actual seat this time around as I was on the floor for the other two shows.

Entirely different perspective for the SLC show. The great thing about being in the seats is that you get to witness the grandeur of the show...the lighting, the visuals, etc. Willie Williams is a genius. Sound was better than I thought it would be...I remember seeing Depeche Mode in 93 at the Delta Center and remembered the sound being horrible. Tonight I wasn't worn out by show time, unlike the other shows where I stood in line all day and my found my legs about to fall off by the time U2 came on.

I love Blinding Lights as the opening for the show. There is just something about Bono rising up from the crowd to raining confetti that is moving. One song I never heard on this tour was Electric Co. In its place was Gloria (Vancouver and Seattle) and I Will Follow (tonight). However, I lost it when Bono and the boys played Until the End...I must say this song is hands down the best song they play live. Soooo much energy!!! I am not sure why this song was not part of the set on the first leg of the tour, but it is essential for every show.

I was a little disappointed that they didn't play anything from Rattle and Hum, Pop, or Zooropa. I know that Stay, Desire, and Gone were staples of the Elevation show. I still think that Zooropa and Pop are 2 of U2's best work.

If U2 ends up in Hawaii in April, I will be there. Great tour, great show, greatest band on Earth.
