In the Name of Love

I went to the U2 concert in San Jose with my BFF Michelle.

Yes, we are Michelle and Michelle. I get it. It’s funny.

The concert was magnificent. U2 played some new songs and a whole bunch of their old hits like:

  • Vertigo
  • Sunday Bloody Sunday
  • Real Thing
  • Mysterious Ways
  • Angel of Harlem
  • Bullet the Blue Sky
  • In the Name of Love
  • Beautiful Day
  • With or Without You
  • Where the Streets Have No Name
  • I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

As far as concerts go, it was outstanding.

The only downside was that it took people so long to get up out of their chairs and start dancing.

Michelle remarked that it was very Silicon Valley-ish to sit through the action advocacy anthems like Sunday Bloody Sunday and Bullet the Blue Sky.

And the woman behind Michelle was complaining when people stood up.

It’s a concert, lady. Take a chill pill, smoke a blunt, and get with the times.

All in all, we had a fabulous time and I enjoyed myself immensely.
