A Herstory Lesson with U2

Almost one year ago, just moments after the final echoes of applause finished resonating through crowd at Columbus’s Nationwide Arena, I embraced the magical aftershock I experienced following the Coldplay concert I had just witnessed and took a (somewhat) solemn vow to never attend another concert as long as I live.
