This definitely feels like an early-tour show, and in a great way. It feels really fresh, and even when they're trying to work things out on stage, the magic is there and it feels spontaneous as opposed to...well, PopMart-ish.
Watching the multicam available on our video page / from YouTube is the perfect way to experience this show in my opinion. Even just considering the context - the band's first time playing arenas in close to a decade...you can really feel the intensity and excitement of them being back indoors.
Discotheque is interesting right up front, with a SATS snippet...I think they may have been trying to make that part of the "hype" portion of Elevation / BD / UTE, seeing as how it was the "pop single" from their last album, but that song is hard to pull off live. Still though, they navigate the performance well and it gets a great SATS coda.
The setlist shakeup makes this a fun one to listen through, since NYD drops a little later than usual on this tour and there are a few other small surprises.
New York is where I really started to realize this show had that really special vibe. Bono is a little low in the AUD source's mix during New York but the song just riipppppps at this show. You can tell the crowd is blown away and it makes all the difference.
U2 never lets the show run out of steam, either. It really just keeps moving without huge break or pause...even Bono slowing things down with a small crowd address before Stuck is a nice pace-check. One of the only downsides is how Bad begins. I'm not sure if Bono is a little out of gas or what but he plays it completely safe until the song really hits its stride at the second chorus.
How was Sweetest Thing not a fucking staple on this tour?
Has just a small way to go to be a 4-star but its a seriously enjoyable listen. Recording: IEM - 4 stars
Stellar crowd. Love how heavy in the mix they are in the AUD source.
One of U2's live peaks was certainly the Elevation Tour, but these early shows in particular hone in on some of that magic.
Here lies the spark that they found and were continuously able to reignite.
