Remember that U2 concert at Busch Stadium? So do Bono's accountants. The show grossed $4,423,395. This is not a typo.
Editor's note: This will be the first of two reviews of last night's concert with Arcade Fire and the National. Stay tuned for Will Kyle's take later this afternoon.
It's rare to see a dual billing of dynamic rock bands in the current musical climate. The mega tours of previous decades seem fewer and farther between, but last night's patrons of the Scottrade Center were in for a treat. While bands like the National and Arcade Fire don't quite possess the same household familiarity as, say, Guns ‘n' Roses or Metallica, fans of the indie scene were more than familiar.
