One of the features here at The Edge of the Inside is a weekly video in the right sidebar. This month I have been featuring one of Lyle’s favorite bands – if not his favorite – U2.
In October of 2009 we went to the U2 360 Tour. I imagine Lyle would have enjoyed it, even the Black Eyed Peas. I recall Lyle getting a copy of U2′s Vertigo Tour. Here is a post from Lyle after watching U2.

U2 a religious experience?
I have enjoyed listening to U2 for as long as I can remember. I guess I am a little late in buying into the idea that their music is some form of worship. I watched a free concert of sorts a few months ago, it was entertaining, sort of in a documentary fashion.
Tonight I watched a concert they did in Chicago this year. Just the band doing numbers, shot like you were in the crowd. I have to say that I was more than entertained. In fact a word like convicted comes to mind. I was actually moved, as were some of the guys watching it with me. There is no doubt that their music is a cry to God and humanity to live as God intended us to live. Thanks to tivo I can watch it again, give me a call and we’ll watch………….worship together.
Check out the link below for more background on U2 if your like me and slow to see the prophetic nature of their art:
