I know I'll go crazy if I don't go crazy tonight
Look closely at that photo. Go ahead, zoom on in. See who it is yet?
Last night I was treated to the U2 concert in Giants Stadium. I have loved U2 for as far back as I can remember and jumped at the chance to see them live. Getting there was an absolutely nightmare - I'm talking 2+ hours in the muggy weather and overpacked trains - but it was absolutely worth it.
Hearing "Beautiful Day" and "Vertigo" live was Euphoria for me. And just when I was wondering if they would sing "With or Without You", they ended the show with it. Incredible, just incredible.
Being there and taking it all in reminded me of one of my top five all-time favorite scenes from Entourage.
Except I forgot to wear a flag as a cape. Damnit!
In a bizarre twist of fate, we met some kind investment bankers on our way out who offered us a ride free of charge back to the city in their black car complete with complimentary beer. Only in New York.
Oh, and Landlocked Mermaid - Bono says WHAT UP.
