Sean Rowe

Schenley Plaza, Pittsburgh, PA

Sean is a singer/songwriter from the Albany, NY, area with a deep, rumbly voice that needs its own ZIP code.

He did a bunch of great songs from his first nationally distributed album, Magic, including "Jonathan." He also did a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Chelsea Hotel," Richard Thompson's "1952 Vincent Black Lightning," and a Tom Waits song for his encore.

Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, PA

My fifth time seeing U2. It was a very enjoyable show, although if I had to rank them, it might be last. At best, tied for fourth.

The show started off great, with four songs from Achtung Baby and the concert had a terrific final third. Somewhere in the middle it the set list was a tad soft, although I'm not sure exactly why.

The set was interesting to look at at first, but not although that great in enhancing the show (unlike, say, the Zoo TV tour staging).

Bono's voice definitely couldn't hit all of the high notes of old, although he pulled off the Pavarotti part in "Miss Sarajevo" quite gracefully.
