u2 in 3D




yesterday we got a wild hair and decided to have a "field trip" down to las vegas--i randomly stumbled across some information about u2 releasing a new 3D movie of their "elevation" tour concert (which we saw in salt lake in december 2005 and it RULED!!) and it was being released friday for a week-long engagement nationwide. i got on the website and it's playing down in las vegas in several different theaters. so we hitched a ride on the party train (actually we just mooched off jared and joellen's escalade--thanks) and went down to the red rock theaters to worship bono on the big screen. we got our 3D glasses and settled in for an hour and 30 minutes of U2 heaven--it was AWESOME!!!!! my only complaints were 1. they edited out my fav u2 song 'mysterious ways'--why didn't they think to call me first and ask my opinion? rude. 2. it wasn't loud enough!! it was plenty loud for most people, but when you are hardcore like me (or as some people would put it, deaf) you want it cranked up so you can feel the love that the edge feels for us. i had a hard time sitting still in my seat, so it was good we were up on the back row so megan and kamari and i could have a more "interactive" experience. we shouted and clapped and yelled for more and thoroughly enjoyed it along with russ, megan, steve, kamari, adam, amber, jared, jody, darrin, and dannielle. dinner was, of course, at cheesecake factory in summerlin (i know, totally suburbanized chain-restaurant food, but it calls to me..). on the way home steve got out his ipod and played 'name that tune' for us and we ended it on a high note by a sing-along to air supply's "making love out of nothing at all". good times.http://u23dmovie.com/
