U2 Live Webcast Was Awesome!

I just finished watching the U2 live webcast on YouTube tonight. They performed in L.A. tonight and let the entire world in on the act via a YouTube stream (the first of its kind) and it was fabulous!! I’ve been to every U2 concert since they started coming back to Salt Lake City. I really love live music. This just about counted. There was something special about it knowing that the rest of the world was watching with me.

The quality of the stream and the sound of the music was amazing. I thought for sure they’d have technical issues with so many people tuning in for a STREAMING broadcast. But it was flawless! I was witness to something special tonight. Now they’re rebroadcasting and I’m going to have to force myself to go to bed. Five o’clock comes too early!! So much for getting to bed early tonight. It was worth it! They better come to Salt Lake City on their second North American leg of the tour!

  1. Only 1/2 hour after I posted this I received an email from U2.com announcing the second leg of the North America Tour. I was disappointed to see that U2 is skipping SLC this time around! Our best bet at this point would be Anaheim or Denver. :(

  2. That's too bad. I was all set to go again. Dang them– what happened to "We love SLC because you supported us during 'Pop'" and "We love SLC because Orrin Hatch supported our Africa thing"?. Backstabbers!

    I didn't catch the live YouTube broadcast. Do you know if it's archived?

  3. Backstabbers, indeed! Yes, you can watch all 2 hours and 21 minutes by visiting their YouTube channel. That might be the best it gets for me this time around in terms of attending their concert. When I lamented to Heather about it this morning she replied, "Didn't you just go to their concert last night?" as she eyed the laptop I watched it on. I had my headphones on and told her last night when I was watching it that it was almost like being there! I take that back now.
