U2 - Live in Louisville - 2017
« on: Jun 17, 2017, 01:02 AM »
I went to the U2 concert at Cardinal Stadium in Louisville on 6/26/2017.

This short video is on my YouTube channel. "Syrian refugee Omaima's image is passed around Cardinal Stadium. While the audience keeps it moving over their heads, U2 performs Miss Sarajevo/Syria. This is the last part of the song with the Syrian refugee girls image moving over the audience."

U2 show was off the charts! just incredible from start to finish! The screen behind them was massive and super high def and the sound they put out for 4 people is amazing. It's all about The Edge! Nobody sounds like him. He is a wonder of nature!!

it's like U2 opened for U2 before they started the Joshua Tree portion.

Getting in and out of the show was horrendous. It's as if they weren't expecting a crowd at the stadium which is absurd considering they sell out Louisville Football games. Maybe they forgot that thousands more people would be out on the field!!

we just made it to our seats a few minutes before U2 came out. We weren't interested in seeing the opener anyway. Water was sold out at the 3 places we stopped before the show even started!! Fun side note: I was at one point right behind Patrick Hallahan in bumper to bumper people.

Those are some good shots you took from your killer seats, LBSUNFLWR. Thanks for the video links too!

Here's another video I just finished putting together. I added a few pictures at the beginning of the video I took throughout the show.

"Ultra Violet (Light My Way)"




U2 performed the song, "Ultra Violet (Light My Way)", at Cardinal Stadium in Louisville, Kentucky on Friday, June 16, 2017. Just before the song, Bono dedicated it to the memory of British Member of Parliament, Jo Cox, who was assassinated exactly one year earlier on June 16, 2016 in London.

This is the song, "Running To Stand Still". I tried to pan around to show the audience a points in the video, but it wound up being way too dark to see much.
