I was there, at Valle Hovin, july 28th.
It must have been the greatest experience of my life, just standing a few meters away from Bono and the band! It was like a dream comming true! This was like one of those moments that you just wanted to shout things out loud, being noticed and be looked in the eyes by the biggest idol in the world. But instead I just standed there, feeling so lucky to be one of 40.000 people, that had the chance to almost touch the star infront of you. I just stod there, letting the music fill up my soul, feeling the great joy and.. WOW :P It was like the feeling of heaven at that moment. Like being reborn.. That might be tho word that describes the moment back then, and it comes back to me every time I look back to it.
The song, "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own", really made it's impression that day. This was also my very first U2 concert, but it will definetly not be the last one!

My second U2 concert - last one was 12 years ago to the day! (July 27th 1993, Valle Hovin, Zooroupa) This concert was non describable! Bono - Edge - you guys rock!!! Larry looked tired, but he had it going on anyhow! Adam was cool as ever! The next day the newspapers wrote that this had to have been the most significant concert to ever take place on Norwegian soil - I 100% agree! Thanks for my lifes best U2 experience!
Ps. All of my three friends who went along with me to the concert agree - best concert ever!

The show was really, REALLY great!! The best experience ever!
