What I wore: Parachute-esque jeans, hot pink t-shirt, sage green hooded cardigan, and a grey parka (hate the word parka, for some reason, but that's what it was).
What I SHOULD have worn: sleeveless, strapless santa claus suit over tight jeans and ugg boots, with santa claus hat on top.
Or: loose blue chiffon halter top, tight jeans, and large fluffy ugg boots. Because those were the outfits worn by the tramps Bono asked to join him on stage. Tramps!
Or, if I wanted to look like Bono (which I have tried before): tapered black jeans, with the bottoms sort of scrunched up against large, round-toe cluncky black boots; captain's hat.
Note to Bono: tapered leg jeans are not flattering on short, thick men. I love you and feel that you could wear sweatpants and still look good. And I know that I am not one to talk, with my parachute jeans, but I'd like to see you in a nice straight leg trouser, in which your leg seenms to float, rather than shlump.
Highlights of the concert include
1. Eating a FANTASTIC french onion steak sandwich at Red Rock before we went to the Delta Center.
2. Kacy and me running like the wind when we realized we were waiting for Christian at the wrong spot and that we could possibly be late for Bono's big entrance. "I hate us!" Kacy yelled as we flew across the icey sidewalk. For those of you who know me personally, you know that it's a big deal for me to run. In fact, I don't think I've run since '01, when I was trying to catch a bus in Shanghai....
3. Bono appearing OUT OF NOWHERE on the stage! How did he do that?
4. Kacy and Christian meeting a member of Maroon Five while I was in the STINKIN' bathroom! I'm always in the bathroom when important things are going on.
5. Bono taking off his sunglasses for a touching rendition of Sometimes You Can't Make it on Your Own.
6. Kacy breaking into the touching moment by shouting "is that a bald spot on Bono's head?"
7. Kacy shouting "take your shirt off!" at Bono during his political commentary (steak sandwich dinner: $20. U2 ticket: $160. Kacy's running commentary during the concert: priceless).
8. Larry Mullen Jr. coming onto the ramp to play a single drum, while Kacy and I commented on his large upper body and seemingly atrophied waist and legs. Drummer's syndrome?
9. Everything Bono did, including wearing this shirt:
10. Ending the concert with 40, and Larry Mullen Jr. being the last to leave the stage.
11. The dance moves of the man in front of us, who liked to do "rainbow hands" and "jazz hands" throughout the concert.
In all, it was WICKED AWESOME.
