Just recently got back from seeing U2 in Houston. It was an amazing show, that’s for sure. Right before the show, we went to the Space Center in Houston and looked at the artifact gallery there. It was very humbling to be able to see the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo capsules.
And then, to go to U2’s show, with their “UFO has landed” stage was the perfect capstone to an amazing day.
What an amazing show. The extra shoutouts to NASA were great, and it also seemed like the baby animation was redone as well, as it showed the baby in a space suit floating around. I wish I could better understand what the baby actually said. All I got was “Spacejacket” at the beginning. But the video and lights during “Your Blue Room” were truly amazing… and with a special coda from one of the ISS astronauts! It’s giving me chills right now, just thinking about it again! It’s great to be able to have a reminder of how great our space program once was.
Everything about this show was brilliant, though. I think this is probably the best stadium tour U2 has ever done. I didn’t think they could pull it off, but the they really did make it feel like the entire stadium was part of the show. The Claw is brilliant! Magnificent stage design as well as how they used the video wall and light show. Really felt like we got our money’s worth, that’s for sure.
Hearing Ultraviolet was a treat as well, as I’ve always wanted to hear this song live, but never got the chance. It’s like a dream come true!

Old news I know, but Super Egg Machine performed their last concert together in April. I’d suspected their breakup some time ago, but it’s still sad. Well, time to go find all the albums.
