Audience videos of U2 concert in Miami – June 2011

Audience videos to document the U2 Concert in Miami on June 29, 2011

Recall the times that someone communicated to you about having seen a legendary band play a few years back. Imagine if they were able to say, “take a look.” While the quality’s not great, it’s intended for those who were there to recall the excitement there that evening. So the ideal viewing date for this blog post is 2021, after LeBroncito’s 10th consecutive championship.

Insider blogging note. It was very time consuming and great fun to put together.  In the hopes of doing a little more research to have a video for each song, I would search every so often. Then I just stopped.  By now, 2 years later, I just got tired of seeing this in my drafts.

The 19 videos cover the 2.5 hours of concert that evening. Page will load much slower than usual.

    Historic show, U2′s appeal on behalf of Human Rights activist Dr. Oscar Biscet, then imprisoned, one of the reasons he’s a free man today. The cause for the freedom of the Cuban people is in debt to Bono, U2. The Cuban people will forever be grateful to the Irish band.

  2. one day Mickey … post-Castro’s Cuba …. outdoor U2 concert … 2 guys in MHS alumni leather wife beaters … one oval shaped … one with greying long-hair … pausing their laughing long enough to wipe away unidentified debris near their eyes …
