My first U2 concert. Got there to queue for GA at 10am - it was BOILING - I was on my own and made the mistake of not taking anything other than water. No food til 12:30am when I got back home and it was boring as hell in the line - we had to sit on gravel. On the upside Everyone at gate H got a inner circle wristbad - I managed to get on the railing for the B stage - I got VERY close to Bono, Edge and Adam.

The queuing system was very good - Well done to Twickenham and the staff also provided free water.

Once we got in around 4:30 - we still had about 3 and a half hours for U2 to come on - support by Doves and Athlete was good, they had their good points though I would say I could not really hear much as the sound was pretty poor.

I would say it's pretty poor in general near the front. I have heard the raido broadcast and its pretty clear so it wasn't a dodgy mic or something.

Anyway the setlist was good - the first 10 songs or so went amazingly fast. The screen was frickin awesome and is amazing to watch - especially when it is dark.

No WOWY (With or without you) or Bad but we did get AIWIY (All I want is you). But in general brilliant- I had nothing to compare it with but it was all worth it in the end - I was totally shattered during the 2 hour tube ride home - but for those 2 and a half hours I forgot about the pain!

The crowd was mixed - I was generally standing around taking it all in while some were jumping like crazy.... and my camera broke down on me so I do not have many pictures :(

I would recommend catching a show if possible!
