the lights were magnificent.
the mood was that strange mix of nostalgic thoughts and the happiness just to be there.
I don't think this was a "historic concert".
And what's more, U2 is not exactly what I would call my favourite band but, man, last night they where gorgeous.
I was there since the early afternoon shooting the soundcheck and I must admit that Bono-guy has some good charisma. Very friendly and not-afraid-to-be-touched-guy also. He signed autographs, talked to fans and was very professional with us, the crew, who was trying to decide for the camera positions.
about 10.000 people came to watch the concert. Bono made us sing all. and all together.
I was in bed with a bad flu and last night definitely shouldn't have worked out in cold - and in fact: I did not feel cold for a second!
See on youtube the first vids they put online. just to get a glimpse of the atmosphere, if you like to. like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYq86LMapK4
and then: where were YOU 20 years ago, when people from both Germanys danced, sing, cry, kissed, hug or simply screamed out loud on that fuckin' wall? where were you guys?
mod and me - we were there! yeah!
God, now I got to wake up my sister to translate. she'll kill me.
