U2 Lands at OU: An Epic Tale

A spaceship landed in the middle of Oklahoma, right smack in the middle of the OU football field.

It's crew: four beings with the blood of the ancient Irish warrior-poets coursing through their veins.
  The top of the ship was like a cathedral spire. It lit up the night sky, dazzling the congregation, pointing to The Magnificent.
  The past kissed the present and met the future. God was in the house and people, we had church in Norman, Oklahoma!

As the opening chords of the song, Magnificent, began, this middle-aged band and the 60,000 people surrounding them became one heart and baby, it was aaaawwwnnn!!

Bono's voice was clear and strong. The band was extraordinary and they all looked like they were genuinely having a great time.

The set list contained something for every fan. It was an incredible show, one that makes you thank the Lord for creating artists like this for others to enjoy.

This spectacular production-in-the-round gives a good view of the band no matter where you are (hence the "360 degree" title). The stage is round with an outer ring connected by two bridges. The guys utilize every inch of it, moving around, playing to the front, back & both sides.

And that, my friends, is why I said, the U2 360 Concert was Epic! Can I get an amen out there?!?!
