Performance

This is my 6th U2 show overall and they were on fire! Bono voice was great that night. Edge guitar playing was phenomenal as usual. Heart punching bass by Mr. Clayton. Don't forget the beast of rhythm, Larry. All instruments were on point and the band's timing. They performed like it wasn't just a job. They performed like it was their first gig again. It had passion.

Sound

It's a very listenable bootleg. All the instruments and Bono are well balanced in the recording.
Recording: "U2 May 21 2017" - 3.5 stars

Audience

The audience around were bad. I was in GA near the rails next to Larry's drum kit from the Tree Stage. There was pushing, shoving, cutting in line to get further. My friend and I were getting pumped up when Larry walked to the drum kit before Sunday Bloody Sunday, This one guy shoved us and claimed his "family" was there and went ahead of us but was lying at the end. He had 2 tall people with him blocking our view. We were getting pissed so we moved left a little bit and the show started. That incident faded away and we were rocking out. 1 minute into show nothing but phones were blocking out view, so we couldn't see the band like 75% of the time, I'm a short person myself. Alot of the people around were being drunk idiots trying to hit on girls and not enjoying the concert. I think the best audience engagements were the 1st half of the show, but slowly gets worst. Worst audiences I've seen at all my 6 shows.

Overall

I really loved the show. Although there was little things i didn't like and I'm not planning on talking about it. It was a great treat to see The Joshua Tree album played in full and sequence. Especially Red Hill Mining Town. Also seeing them perform a unreleased track from their forthcoming album. What makes it special is that the song may be completely different when it's officially released. I give this show a 4 out of 5. The reason I took a star out was due to U2 dropping A Sort of Homecoming. Like come on, there wasn't a valid reason. Yet Elevation stays. And the horrible audience my friend and I was around with. Jeez these people were buzz kills.
