One of the things I love about music is that it is still magic. And part of that magic is its ability to turn into something else in a given moment. -- Bono

It was an honor for me to take my 9-year-old son to his first Rock & Roll concert ever! To begin his concert going career with floor seats at a U2 gig was the ultimate! We were inside the ellipse (thanks to MSG security) right near Larry's portable drum kit. I have been to numerous U2 gigs, but this by far was the best show I have seen to date. I donít know if it was the fact that U2 was excited to be in NYC, or that I was excited to be sharing this time with my son at such a great event. The light show was electrifying. The sound was amazing. I was so excited to hear Fast Cars and Original of the Species. What a great surprise to have Mary J Blige singing with Bono. I donít think anyone else should be allowed to sing that song besides Bono and MaryJ. Amazing is all I can say. My son Stewart thanks the kind U2 staff who gave him Larry's Drumsticks after Sunday Bloody Sunday. It is a moment that brought a 9-year-old huge U2 fan to tears, as you can see in the photo! Both mother and son have bonded during this experience, and my thanks to U2 for giving us common ground and music that will span generations!!
