U2 pictures- The Claw and the Edge!

Have some more pictures but here is a good one of "The Claw" (the name they gave the set) and The Edge (guitar player for U2).

The U2 concert continued

So the set U2 took with them on tour this year is the largest set ever taken on a tour. The previous record holder, from a Rolling Stones tour, would actually fit UNDERNEATH theirs. They called the set "The Claw". The tour had a total of 200 trucks and three stages that alternated from venue to venue. Here are some pictures during intermission of the stage. You can see how many people were there!

The band that opened was called Muse and they were incredible. For those of you who saw Twilight, they were the band whose music played during the baseball game. I will be downloading some of their music shortly! These are some pictures of Muse!

Before the U2 concert

Last week some friends and I headed to Charlottesville for the U2 concert! It was unbelievable! I finally got my pictures from the camera to the computer so here they are:

Alicia used to live there so she took me to the downtown mall for a late lunch. It's a beautiful area.

The town was definately ready for the concert! Most of the people downtown were talking about the concert, wearing U2 t-shirts or complaining about the anticipated traffic of the evening. I heard lots of people speaking different languages and ALOT of British accents (which are my favorite!) There were some great little shops downtown as well. We ate at an Italian place outside and waited for some friends to meet up with us. Then we went to the hotel, cleaned up and walked to the show! I will post some pics of the show in just a little bit!
