I was fortunate see several of their shows over the course of 2001 and this is U2's year!  The shows from the first leg of the Its A Beautiful Day tour were awesome.  But the fall leg of the tour after September 11 pulled the band together tighter and better than ever.  

The post September 11 shows surpassed any show they ever played during their entire career.  Anyone who was lucky enough to see them will tell you there was something special about those Post 9-11 shows.  During Walk On, they projected the names of all the victims of the crashed American and United jets, police officers and fire department personnel who lost their lives.  It was one of the most uplifting and positive emotional experiences since 9-11.  It was because of how everyone felt united at the end of their show.  It wasn't about your nationality or politics.  It was about being one people working together during tragedy, which is why I made the effort to see several of the post 9-11 concerts.  

U2 has a lot to say and its all positive ...
