Oh. My. Gosh. That show was amazing! Ok, start from the begining. Four or five days ago I won tickets on 107.9 The Mixfor the U2 in 3D show at Jordon Commons. I had no idea what this was at the time, but thought, "hey, Nik likes U2 and the last few 3D shows I have seen have been half way decent, so what the heck." I actually got through twice while calling. Once as caller 6 and then again as number 10, so I won! Yay! Well, the show was last night at 9:15 so Nik had to get out of class early. Luckily Mr. McKay is awesome and lets Nik do what he wants.
We got there early and redeemed our pass for actual tickets. Before the show started the morning DJ (Jay Parker, who has hooked me up with quite a few fun things through out the years) handed out some prizes. I got a tee shirt because I won on the radio, and Nik got a CD cause they still had prizes left over and he aske for one. Lucky Nik. He got the Pat Monahan album, and is letting me listen to it. For those of you who don't know, Pat Monahan is the lead singer of Train, and is doing some solo stuff. I like it.
We all got to wear Bono glasses to complete the experience. When the show started, I had no idea what to expect, but it turned out that it was a U2 concert filmed live in 3D. So cool! The arial shot of the drummer was my favorite, but the bass player does some cool stuff with the 3D. They had a HUGE tower of screens that would show different images like a posterized version of Bono or this funny stick figure guy walking on a tredmill. It was pretty cool. The whole show was about an hour and fourty-five minutes. And worth every minute. And this is saying something because I am really not a huge U2 fan, and I was amazed too.
(ps-I think this is an awful picture, but here it is anyway.)
I encourage everyone to go see U23D at the IMAX Theater at Jordon Commons. They said it will run though mid February.
