Intimacy in the Kingdome

Greetings Wirelings!

I am new to the "club", so please bear with me.

I had the opportunity to join many of you at the Kingdome in Seattle
on 12 December 1997 to see the last American PopMart show. It was my
first time seeing the boys, and it was a total dream come true.

Our seats were originally on the far right side of the stage, on the
floor (Adam's side), but thanks to some wonderful usher, and a slight
change in the seating arrangement, we got relocated to perhaps the
best place possible. My actual seat was right next to the B-stage,
among many wonderful wirelings.

All of this is beside the point because I feel that no matter where I
sat, the emotional impact of the show would have been the same. Sure,
U2 played around a little more than usual (x-mas tree on the arch,
multiple Bonos, etc...), but I feel that U2 has an amazing talent that
is almost impossible to describe. They can take a huge cavernous dome
or stadium and make it feel like it is the smallest club. I don't
know how they do it, but I try explaining it to the less fortunate
ones that haven't experienced this, and they just don't quite
understand. It is an amazing thing to experience.

Those are just my thoughts.
