Here was tonight's view of the U2 stage at Wembley Stadium. It was taken on my BlackBerry, so apologies it's not a particularly sharp shot.
We had better seats than last night. We were on the opposite side of the stage and slightly closer to all the action. We even got a full unobstructed view of the most crucial bit: the round stage in the middle where the band spend the majority of their time. (The outer runway's a nice idea, but it's hardly ever used: it's essentially a barrier between the band and the crowd, I don't quite understand the point of it other than to pen in all those crazy diehards right near the front.)
We were lucky to get these seats. I initially bought four tickets for the Friday night show, so I had two spare that no one was interested in buying from me. But, via the magic of the internet, I was able to locate a chap in Essex who had two spare tickets for the Saturday night. After a flurry of emails and text messages on Wednesday evening, we were able to meet up in central London on Thursday afternoon to do a swap.
Turns out his tickets were quite a deal better than mine, although the same face value, so I'm grateful he couldn't make tonight's gig or we would never have managed to secure such a great view of the stage!
I'll tell you more about the actual concerts in a later post...once my ears have stopped ringing!
