A strong show to start the Los Angeles performances for the tour, featuring an energetic performance from the band and good performances of pretty much every song in the set. While there are a few minor issues, like lyric fumbles here and there, they don't put down the performance much, making this a great performance from the band.
Excellent audience recording, allowing you to notice pretty much every detail in the performance. Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars

Overall, for the show that started the Los Angeles area set of shows, this is an excellent performance from start to finish, full of strong, energetic performances with a couple of bonuses in the form of a particularly noteworthy moment happening on stage and a rare performance of California (There Is No End To Love) which was only done a handful of times on the tour. The most noteworthy moment in the show is when Joseph Hier of the tribute band Hollywood U2 joins the band for a fun rendition of Sweetest Thing. All in all a very good show from the starting stages of the tour.

Before the 2015 tour dates were announced, an LA-based U2 filmer tried to talk me into doing a big project for upcoming U2 LA shows. The plan was to an "ultimate" version of LA to include 4k multicams with high end audio of all songs performed in LA. The multicam part stalled out but I always kept the project in mind. In the fall/winter of 2015, I completed mixes of 5/27 + 5/28 + 5/31 + 6/3, but never started the other two shows. With the hopes to finalize the project before the new Joshua Tree Gimmick Tour, I started working on mixes of 5/26 + 5/27 + 5/30 concurrently (revised the original 5/27 mix). So with full mixes of every show done, it was a matter of stitching everything together into something cohesive.
I tried to keep the structure of the show. However there are some overlaps, such as the two band intros mid-song or three successive closing songs. Since I wanted to include all tracks performed throughout the 6 show residency, compromises were made. The clips from the Roxy Club show didn't fit into the main arena set, so they're tacked on as bonus tracks.
Song selection was mostly at my discretion (for songs with multiple takes). Feel free to criticize all you want. Sometimes I had an easy choice with goofed up versions, but other times it was just a personal preference.
I would argue the LA run is where the 2015 tour really came together. The Phoenix shows were surprisingly good, but the stretch in LA was something special. After the show of 5/26/2015, U2's Tour Manager of 33 years Dennis Sheehan passed away in his hotel room. By all reports, everybody in U2 land was shocked and heartbroken. Throughout the remainder of the shows, Bono would discuss the importance of Dennis and their loss. I've tried to retain some of these moments within the compilation.
As a personal (and brief) review of each show:
Night 1 (5/26/2015) - something of a glitchy show and not their best.
Night 2 (5/27/2015) - U2 turned in one of the best emotional shows I've seen by U2, and has the highest number of songs in the set.
Roxy (5/28/2015) - started as a make-up promo show, but turned into one of the most energetic and unique shows by U2 in the last 15 years.
Night 3 (5/30/2015) - had highlights but was a bit of an emotional let-down compared to the past couple shows.
Night 4 (5/31/2015) - U2 turned it around with an outstanding high energy show with night 4, much better than the previous night
Night 5 (6/03/2015) - Unfortunately I couldn't make it for Night 5, but others reported it to be an outstanding closing show to the LA Residency.
Recording & Mix Notes:
This is a mix of several wireless sources plus variety of audience sources. I can achieve a pretty clear band mix using the wireless, but need the audience recording to capture the live room sound with the audience recording. These prove to be the biggest variable in sound, as adding too much audience recording muddies the sound, but also adds life. Additionally, each audience recording acts and behaves very differently. I did the best I could to my ears, but others might have different preferences.
5/26 + 5/27 + 5/30 were all mixed at the same time, so sound the most alike. The other shows will sound a bit different, but hopefully not too distracting.
Special thanks go to the other tapers in ProfessorCriminal, MH, Bedoc, JB, JEMS, TallTaper, and mixster_. Their contributions were essential for the project.
As always, I give a friendly encouragement to people to get into taping and mixing. Just take the craft seriously and it will reward you many times over.
Wireless recordings are not for everyone. If not they're not your thing, either sonically or ethically, there's excellent audience recordings out there.
Similarly, I'm mixing primarily for my ears. This is what sounds best to me. This may not sound best to you. That's a fair statement. I'm open to honest criticism (although you should have caught me when I was working on the mix!), but pointless complaining is unappreciated (naturally). Let's play nice.
Not currently planning on releasing any other 2015 stuff at this time.
Please don't sell this recording in any way - no cash for blanks, 2:1s, or any other form of "getting paid for your time". Just share it freely.
Please don't convert to mp3, then back to wave, and then trade it around. This stuff is too easy to find on torrents now.
Please do not attempt to remaster/remix this recording and spread it around. This has been heavily processed, and if you want to do your own mix, go get the wireless recordings (good luck) and do it yourself from scratch.
Also, please don't torrent or post on other sites without at least dropping me a line and asking. I may want to just post it there myself. Please ask (and wait for permission!) before putting it into any matrix + video. If you ask nicely, I will likely say “yes”.

"I really like the ijwthstd recording (shared after MH, that's
why I dubbed it "recorder 2"), the only thing was that the recording
of Invisible was not as good as that from MH - so I lend it and eq'ed
& balanced it to match the rest of the ijwthstd source."
ORIGINAL NOTES (ijwthstd):
"Not bad for something recorded from the cheap seats but I was on the
aisle and had the PA pointed right at me. Thought about going to more
shows but everything worked out so well here I think I will quit while
I am ahead."
"Please don't stick on any other torrent sites, I am posting here first

The versions of A Sort Of Homecoming and Bad included in the Wide Awake In America EP sound like live recordings but they were actually recorded during two soundchecks of the Unforgettable Fire tour in Europe. The audience noise was mixed in afterwards.
