U2: Masters of Their Craft

In the presence of greatness

Well the U2 concert has come and gone. The reason why I haven't wrote about it sooner was because I need to process what I experienced at the Continental Airlines Arena this past Wednesday. The concert was amazing, loud and incredible. It was awesome to watch true masters of their craft playing right in front of us. As I've told some, I liken the concert to being able to watch Leonardo paint the Mona Lisa or watch Beethoven compose the No.9 Symphony. Not only is U2 made of great artists, but even better performers. Their ability to play show after show all year long is awesome to watch. Bono has been singing for 20+yrs and Wednesday night he sounded like just sung his first verse. His ability to keep his voice intact is unbelievable. One quote I took with me from the many that night was when Bono said, "Jew, Christian, Muslim.....we are all sons of Abraham." Think about that one for awhile because I still am.
