As usual, U2 was an unforgettable experience and will cherish this for the rest of my life! What can you say about the best, most awesome sounding band in the world. They just get better and more creative each tour they do. I loved how they went back to their roots with Cedarwood Rd and Iris, bono's mom. The digital technology was insanely amazing and I can't even describe its genious you'd have to be there to witness it. Even seeing video of it on youtube will not be enough to be fascinated with that performance and all the visual effects and moving pictures and stuff. I can go on forever about the performance, only to say anyone reading this, if you were consider going to any part of this tour and can somehow still get tickets, I swear, if you like U2 at all, you MUST find a way to be there. Don't take it from me, just ask anybody who has been to this tour and who will be going (as it just started in the US last night, and I was fortunate to be among the first to see the awesomeness of the I + E tour).
The sound quality was exhilarating with the additional enormous speakers hanging down all over the arena to make the sound even louder and spread out more evenly. This is even louder and crazier than the U2 shows I've been to before, and I've been to a lot of them, including the 360 tour which was amazing as well. Recording: Audience microphone - 3.5 stars
Every seat was filled, and the standing area in general admission was full beyond capacity and with 10's of thousands of fans on top of our lungs singing along the catchy tunes of U2, it was an awe inspiring experience that you can't envision unless you are there. People from young to old and me somewhere in between were hoarse voiced by the time the final tune was sung. I wish I can be there for tonight's show, but I couldn't take 2 days in a row out of work, otherwise I would've done it again in the heartbeat.
Unlike any other rock show you can ever be at, U2 is the best. Nothing matches the greatness of sound quality and genius of Bono and the band and I am excited to be going back in July to the NYC Madison Sq Garden part of the tour.

Note: 'The Troubles' was initially on the setlist between 'Beautiful Day' and

I scored GA tickets for the first night of U2 in San Jose figuring the usual sound
configuration. Unfortunately U2 likes to run around so they build a new stage and
sound configuration. The stacks are mounted on the ceiling pointed towards the
sides. This meant pointing the mics straight up underneath one of the stacks which
is far from ideal. Seems best taping seats are front row upper deck. The result
of this wacky configuration is a muddy echoey sound. The one upside of this was
the area I stood was basically empty except for people going past me likes the tides
as Bono or the rest of the band played one end of the stage or the other. This means
minimal close crowd noise. The other issue was trying to stanf looking straight
forward without looking too obvious staring straight at a security guard with lots
of security walking past. I was not expecting a good recording but pleasantly
surprised with the listen on my drive home. Sound nothing like my Joshua Tree
recordings but will more than suffice as a reproduction of the show and the sound.
The show was a good mix of old and new and the band was having fun. They seem well
rehearsed and ready for a solid tour. Nice tribute to BB King. Looking forward to
night 2 where I have hopefully better taping seats.
Just the basic taper requests here and please no vitriol:

Don't modify the info file
Don't remaster and/or post on other sites that are not 100% free
If shared keep info file intact but create a second file with any changes
Don't convert to lossy formats except for personal use
Do support the artists

"In Madison Square Garden, the lights came on during Where The Streets Have No Name and there must have been ten thousand people with tears running down their faces. And I told them they looked beautiful, which became the line in City Of Blinding Lights."
