"It's been absolutely wonderful and each show has seemed better than the one before,'' Dennis Lenane said as he led his wife toward a seafood restaurant for lunch. "I can't think of a better vacation." In some cases, the quest to get a glimpse of U2 was so intense it actually tested the bonds of friendship. Consider, for example, the tale of the five buddies from Woburn. When tickets went on sale, the five began calling for tickets at both the Centrum and Boston Garden. To decide which four would go, they relied on the old method of drawing straws. Unfortunately, hard feelings occurred between the four lucky con-certgoers and the one friend who drew the shortest straw. "The fifth guy really chewed us out," said Jeff Shelley, 24. "He eventually got a ticket from another friend of ours, so he's still talking to us." The four friends were killing time outside the Centrum early yesterday afternoon but decided it was probably not wise to be there with tickets amid so many restless fan's without tickets. So they left for the nearest bar. Most of those bundled against the cold outside the arena did not have tickets and were waiting for concert promoters to allow a small group inside as seats became available.

"I think it's really great that the band is doing it and giving us a chance to get tickets," said Jay McLaughlin of Springfield as he sheltered his l'fc-year-old son, Ben, from the frigid wind. "I've been here with a friend of mine since about 9:30 this morning. Each of us takes a turn waiting in the car with Ben while the other stands in line." U2 has come a long way since McLaughlin first saw the band in 1983 in New Haven. "It wasn't even sold out, and look at them now," he said. Around midafternoon, McLaughlin's friend John Dusenberry came jogging around one corner of the Centrum thrusting two tickets into the air. "See, it was worth the wait," said McLaughlin as he got into a pickup truck back to Springfield to deliver his son to his wife before coming back for the concert Singer Bono kisses bassist Adam birthday. .c-3v Y Jt---i A - & - -- s - - limit DAI IPC Grand Opening of best Indian food in Boston.

Because tickets were sold by telephone and limited to two per buyer, scalpers were not as prevalent yesterday as they are at other popular concerts. (According to the Centrum's general manager John Wenzell, at least two scalpers were arrested outside the arena.) A handful of scalpers were on the scene and some fans desperate for tickets foolishly ignored the old saw "Caveat emptor" - let the buyer beware. Shani Janz said her boyfriend, Frank, was standing in line when a would-be scalper approached and said he had four tickets to sell for $80 apiece. Frank was interested, and the scalper told Frank and a handful of other customers to follow him to the mall across the street because he did not want to risk being caught by police illegally selling tickets. At the mall, Frank gave the scalper $160, and the scalper said to wait for him while he went to get the tickets. He never returned. "It was stupid of them to trust , the guy and hand over the money," said Janz, who declined to give Frank's last name, to save him from further ignominy. While Frank went out in search of the alleged ticket seller, Janz stood patiently in line, hoping to purchase tickets through legal means. Mary Rusicki, of Springfield, had already paid a scalper $65 for one ticket to see U2 in Hartford Thursday night, so she was not enthusiastic about the possibility of spending too much more. "In Hartford I ended up near the roof behind the stage and never even saw them," said Rusicki. Rusicki fared better in Worcester and was able to buy a $25 seat reasonably near the front of the stage. "I paid less and I'm actually going to see them," said Rusicki, who after last night will have seen U2 seven times. "Who says Friday the 13th is bad luck?" As U2 took the stage shortly before 9 last night, the long wait for tickets seemed well worth the sacrifice. "I'm having such a good time that I don't even remember being cold out there," said Patrick Weldon of New Haven, who had stood on line for hours, starting at 8 a.m. yesterday.

After being rock's tense band of social conscience for the past decade, who can blame them? All kidding aside, U2 gave another spectacular show. They've gone crazy with high-tech video this time - the show felt like Pink Floyd at 78 rpms at times - but not so crazy that it overpowers the intimacy that's always been the essence ol aU2show. The concert started blisteringly, with kinetic, grainily abstract computer graphics assaulting the eyes, but moved seamlessly to an acoustic, non-video-enhanced hootenanny segment that was the polar opposite. The key theme was outlined in one of the phrases flashed onto four back video screens and an overhead, 15-by-24-foot screen: "Contradiction is balance." That's exactly what this dramatically shifting show was about The contradictions were everywhere. Bono began with the starkly industrial rock of "Zoo Station," hidden behind dark sunglasses and moving with stylized android gestures. Then later, he took off the glasses, walked down a narrow ramp to a stage in the middle of the floor, and softly, vulnerably sang "Angel ol Harlem," as Clayton and the Edge played guitars at his side (as though they were in a coffeehouse) and drummer Larry Mullen Jr. played -laid-back conga rhythms. Need further contradictions? How about opening with eight straight songs from their new album, though the crowd hungered for oldies? How about, later on, intoning "Bad," a gently hypnotic song about a friend's drug addiction (again with no video images), then blasting into the bruisingly loud "Bullet the Blue Sky," about fighter planes bombing Central American villages - and enhanced by a bright-orange video of a fire burning on a crucifix?

The Boston-originated band even finished with "UMass," their breakthrough song, which sent the crowd into a proudly geographic frenzy. Bono later complimented the Pixies from the stage: "I love being in a rock 'n' roll band in Massachusetts with the Pixies!" he roared. But surprisingly, Bono said very little else during the show, compared to his long-winded proslyetizing days. He briefly chastised scalpers ("We did our best to stop the bastards"), encouraged the crowd to vote ("You've got the vote - use it") and pretty much otherwise stuck to the business of singing. He had, in fact, an extraordinary night He reached Al Green-like high notes at times, drove the band hard on "Mysterious Ways," touched everyone with his spiritually seeking "Where the Streets Have No Name" (done in a beefed-up, house-music version), took the roof off with "Pride (In the Name of Love)," a tribute to Martin Luther King, and only faltered in his gold-lame Elvis parody near the end. Disco mirror balls were also used for that - and that might have been too much of a contradiction even for the most open-minded fan. Still, when the band powered into the climactic "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," you somehow felt that they really had, at least in terms of concert performance.
