What I did this weekend

I had a date with Bono at Busch Stadium in St Louis. It was pretty good. More than pretty good. To be honest, if I never get to go to another rock-type concert in my life, I will be happy because it was THAT good. Musically, production quality, technology, depth of meaning — everything was as good as it could be.

My favorite part was the introduction to the song Beautiful Day. They had a webfeed from Mark Kelly, Gabby Gifford’s husband, who was on the Space Shuttle. They asked what he wanted to say. He held up the intro words to the song in front of him and let them float off. (lack of gravity can be a beautiful thing to behold) Then he said, “tell my wife I love her very much . . . she knows” (lyrics from Major Tom).

Here’s the same part from the Anaheim concert.
