U2 Brings Space Ship to East Coast on '360-Degree Tour'

'Larger than life' was the feeling most people took home after the iconic Irish rock band U2's performance at the Giants Stadium in New Jersey last night. From the 60,000 ecstatic fans of all ages, to the enormous 150 ft tall stage designed as a space ship, this performance was unforgettable.

I got to be part of this amazing scene as Interscope Records hooked me and my colleague up with great seats to the show (thanks Interscope!) The entire stadium stood up as Bono and his band mates entered the stage. Bono looked as youthful as ever, donning his signature shades and fitted leather jacket. He began by introducing his band mates: bassist Adam Clayton, drummer Larry Mullen Jr, and guitarist The Edge - as if fans didn't already know their names by heart!

Each track was accompanied by electrifying images projected onto the giant wrap around video screen that was part of the spaceship structure (hence the name of the "360-Degree Tour"). During the show, footage of astronauts appeared on the screen.

The band covered Bruce Springsteen's classic "She's the One," in honor of the singer's 60th birthday, and then transitioned into their own classic "Desire." Bono continued dedicating music to distinguished individuals and causes throughout the night. He sang "It's a Beautiful Day" for Quincy Jones, who was somewhere in the crowd, and "Walk On" for world renowned freedom fighter Aung San Suu Kyi, currently in house arrest in her homeland Myanmar. During this song, hundreds of members of Amnesty International, an organization that stands up for human rights around the world, walked around the stage holding up masks of Aung San Suu Kyi. New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, who was in the audience, also got a shout-out for his humanitarian efforts.

The band played several tracks from their 12th studio album "No Line on the Horizon." However, it seemed as though fans were more enthused with past favorites like "Sunday Bloody Sunday," and "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." On a whole, the concert was a life changing experience for many as it brought light to a lot of human rights issues around the world. This concert was proof that U2 is still going strong.
