U2 Concert

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

This past September, I finally experienced my first U2 concert at FedEx field in Maryland.  While not a super-fan of the band, I knew that seeing them live at some point in my life was a requirement. FedEx proved to be my least favorite concert venue to date but the show was great nonetheless as the band mixed in songs from their new album with a good number of classics.

Pics and set list below.

Coldplay Concert

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

The “Blog Categories” on the right hand side of this site give you a good indication of how I spend most of my free time. I added a new one today… “concerts”. Unfortunately I do not make the time to attend as many live shows as I would like but in hindsight, I always want to remember as much as I can about the experience. That being said, I thought I would start chronicling them here along with the respective set lists.

This past May, I went with Jeff, Todd and Lauren to see Coldplay out at Nissan Pavilion. Most people knock this venue for its horrible location 45 minutes (minimum) west of DC and its organizers inability to control traffic in and out of the parking lots. We got pretty lucky this go around… great weather, great concert and not a big deal getting in and out. The highlight of the night proved to be a free upgrade from our seats on the lawn up into the pavilion.

Pics available for you to enjoy. Set list is below.
