Get On Your Boots!

509 days ago {our christmas 2009} i surprised michael with these tickets.

but Bono had back surgery and the U2 360 North American tour was postponed a year. 
{we had babysitters lined up for the original dates so we made the most of it}.

This concert was like no other, and was well worth the wait!
Lenny Kravitz opened and was fabulous!
" du du du du dunt du dunt, American Woman stay away from," 

 and U2 was "MAGNIFICENT!"

{the lyrics from U2's song Magnificent are delicious soul food... here is a taste}

"I was born, I was born, to sing for You
I didn't have a choice but to lift You up
and sing whatever song You wanted me to 
I give You back my voice from the womb
my first cry it was a joyful noise, oh, oh
only love, only love can leave such a mark, 
only love can heal such a scar
justified until we die you and i will magnify, 
oh, oh, Magnificent."

{The Edge}

our friends john & sylvia were also at the concert.  
they won a raffle and were standing at the edge of the outer stage!  
while they were waiting in line to enter, U2 walked past their line, 
and Bono reached out and took sylvia's hand then 
kissed her on the cheek!  
{i'm still swooning over it}

{this is an old  pic. of me with beautiful sylvia. that is the cheek that was kissed by Bono}

michael kissed me, and told me he loved his gift, and that the concert was, and that i am the coolawesomest wife ever! 
{i'm still swooning over that too}.

I was there also!!!! It was A-MAZING. It was well worth the wait (we got our tickets in Fall of 2009 as an anniversary present to each other!) We saw U2 10 years ago, but this concert was WAY better! The stage was awesome....I still can't get over how big it was. That is amazing that Bono kissed your friend on the cheek!!! ahhhh!!!!
