Tens of thousands (over 80,000 actually)slammed the stadium at FedEx field Tuesday night to sing along with their favorite Irishman and his band of brethren, also known as the rockstars of the band U2.
I was lucky enough to score an invitation to the event through none other than Bono’s 1st cousin himself (Simon, not pictured), who brought along some Irish pals and other friends to hear the remarkable stage performances and get a chance to meet the politically active singer/songwriter in person in a brief presentation of the ONE campaign before the concert began.
U2’s popularity filled the stadium and brought to the arena such notables as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senator Pat Leahy. Others were mentioned from the stage in Bono’s overly nonpartisan way -Eunice Shriver, Tom Daschle, George W. Bush… Songs selected (22) included many from the newest album as well as many old favorites. Our favorite? “With Or Without You.” A classic!
