U2 Puts The Green Back Into Spartan Stadium!
Seeing U2 in concert is a chance of a lifetime and it comes with a lot of buzz including what not to bring and what happens after the show.
About 70,000 Michiganders flooded Spartan Stadium last night to hear the likes of Bono's smooth voice fill the air! U2 was originally scheduled to perform last June before Bono had to have emergency back surgery.
Getting back to the do's and dont's of last night's soiree ... no one has to tell me twice not to bring a purse into a venue! I always avoid carrying anything that I have to keep track of at all times. But, did you hear about the sod issue?
U2's concert promoter has agreed to pay to replace the sod at Spartan Stadium to the tune of $253,000! Apparently, their equipment and security barriers were so heavy that the seven-year old grass at the stadium was completely destroyed.
I've done some research --- and Spartan Stadium isn't the only venue that has had to have a complete 'make-over!' When U2 graced Chicago, Washington, North Carolina and Virginia last year each of those fields had to be re-sodded, as well!
