U2 Update

Apologies to all of you who were desperately waiting for my report 😉 In a word? Amazing. It’s called the 360 tour b/c they use this incredible stage set-up so no matter where you are sitting, you can see EVERYTHING!  Apparently, the set cost like $40 million or something crazy like that…the Frug got us tix from some guy on craigslist (always the bargain hunter!) and we were in Club Level seats for $80 (well BELOW the printed ticket cost!)…we were able to see everything AND had easy access to uncrowded bathrooms…very very important! 😉  The show itself was spectacular — the lights, the video and the MUSIC!!  Woo! …and the Frug was killing it on the air guitar next to me! 🙂  Maybe he can go as the Edge for Halloween this year?

Went w/Bob and “Fawn” and Robin and “Wrench”…Wrench drove so that the Frug could get his drink on and not kill us driving home. Bob played housewife and shopped for our yummy tailgate picnic! 😉 The boy missed his calling…he thought of everything — from the fried chicken (love that chicken from Popeyes!) down to the wet naps AND dental floss!  Amazing 😉  Now, as for Fawn? Cannot look at her and see HER. I see her Christian Louboutin black patent platform pumps!

comfy practical shoes!

A REAL person has these.  Not a celebrity, someone I see regularly!  When I mentioned her fab shoes (and their price tag) to my adoring hubby, the Frug said dismissively ‘well, she works’….GAH!  WTH!  Why can’t I have $800 shoes?  WHY!?!  Maybe they don’t work w/my housewifey lifestyle.  Maybe it’s b/c they wouldn’t be comfy to wear while walking the dog or loading the dishwasher. Say something like THAT, not ‘well, she works’…grumble.

Where was I?  Ah, yes. The concert!  Muse opened for U2 and I love Muse, not b/c I know their music, but b/c they are on the Twilight soundtrack (the song during vampire baseball) and they will be on the New Moon soundtrack as well! They were really good too!

Robin had a friend with Backstage Passes (that b*tch didn’t share!) and front row seats…she was able to take some phenomenal pix like these…

BONO RULES!

BONO RULES!

Bone and the Edge, baby!

The concert was the best EVER and the company was good too 😉  Best part? The $40 tee shirt I bought!

yup, that's what a $40 concert tee looks like!

See?? You don’t let me get the Loubs and I have to make you suffer, $40 at a time! LOL 😉 I kid. I kid.
