  • U2 Rocks Giants Stadium, Trains Not So Much

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    I went to see U2 last night at Giants Stadium with three high school buddies and my wife, Jen. Tremendous show with a record 82,000 fans in the house. We were up in the 300s section but because of this gigantic sound system that looked like something out of a Steven Spielberg movie, you could see the video and hear the audio very well,  even from near the top of the stadium.

    Bono payed homage to Bruce Springsteen (on his 60th B-day), Michael Jackson and The Beatles, as seen here in this “He’s The One” ode to Bruce.

    New Jersey Transit and Meadowlands officials get an ‘F’ for their handling of the transportation disaster. We waited in a huge line, with thousands of others, that took nearly 2 hours before we got a train back to the Big City. Booo…..
