Yesterday was a day I will never forget
to see one of the greatest bands ever
playing right in my backyard
the day started off with rain rain and more rain
I did not take my camera so the shots I am using
are from my phone and from friends
these are shots of the venue around 11am
notice all the green grass and keep in mind that
this will be an official before picture!
So off we went around 3 ~ showtime was 6ish so that
would give us plenty of time to park at friends and
walk the 1 1/2 miles to the gates
this is not us but it could have been ~ it was miserable
rain ponchos, backpacks and rubber boots
I was stylin'
in the line-up ~ oh the anticipation
we made it through the gates onto the field
now was time to pick the perfect spot
not too close but not too far away = not too bad!
thankfully the rain stopped and we put down our tarps
and settled in to wait for the show
this is our crew
BIL Scott, Trevor, the best neighbors in the world
Colin & Cathy and friends Mac & Marina
a blue eyed boy meets a brown eyed girl
ah ah ah the sweetest thing
crowds really starting to come in now
between acts we were treated to a fly over by 2
Canadian Forces F-18's
it was pretty spectacular and they went over 3 times
a couple more shots of the crowd while
Arcade Fire was playing
taken by a friend that was in the grandstands
then came the headliner ~ the crowd went wild
I can tell you ~ it was amazing
we sang and danced and clapped and cheered
I have always liked U2's music ~ but Trev was the diehard fan
I am pleased to say that this concert made me a true fan
now remember that before shot ~ this is what the field turned into
in the high traffic areas so getting around was quite a challenge
you would not believe the people I saw in sandals
and some in heels
I have to shake my head ~ it had rained buckets all day
you are going to a FIELD
and you are wearing cute little wedges
give that girl a prize!!
I wore these and this is what they look like today
I did take my sneakers for the walk back to the car
and after we hit pavement I changed footwear
those boots were not made for walking!
Bono said that he felt right at home with all the rain
they were pretty impressed with Moncton
and we were too ~ over 75,000 strong
despite the rain it was still
A Beautiful Day!!
Today the weather was gorgeous
I hurt all over
I am running on not much sleep
but I am still smiling and singing along
with the boys from Dublin.
Thank goodness it is a long week-end
and I have tomorrow off!
