Comments: U2's longtime tour manager Dennis Sheehan passed away after the previous night's concert. The tour debut of 40, this concert, and the whole tour were dedicated to his memory; Bono spoke extensively about Sheehan before both Iris and 40. Bad's performance was spontaneous; no song was listed on the printed setlist between Beautiful Day and With Or Without You. Bono sung the melody of Also Sprach Zarathustra as Edge's piano rose onto stage for Every Breaking Wave. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

The band was in top form and emotional, due to the passing of Dennis.
I haven't download the show to be honest. Recording: Audience microphone - 4.5 stars
The audience seemed dead to me. Just head rocking. But the GA seemed high energy. I wish i was there at that area of the venue.
The opening of the show was cool, even though I liked the later versions of Miracle where they add the strings. But it was a high energy show with great mix between old and new. I not big on the intermission, but the transition to Invisible was great. Fantastic version of Bad, and my first time hearing it live. It was really emotional, with the Moment of Surrender snippet. All of this wonderful set built up to the tour debut of 40. It was absolutely beautiful and emotional. It was great. I loved this show. It ranks up in 3rd place of my top U2 shows. The biggest bonus that I met Bono!!!

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”.

J'avais vérifié en rentrant du concert la veille si je verrai mieux l'écran ou pas pour ce deuxième concert. La réponse était oui et ça change complètement la perception du concert.
En fait j'ai tout compris. La conception et la réflexion autour de la setlist, les animations sur l'écran et le jeu de scène quand le groupe est dedans (notamment sur "Until the End of the World").
Et en plus de cela, le concert à été d'excellente facture. Retour de "Out of Control" que j'avais vu venir mais que j'attendais avec impatience. Super version qui met vraiment la pêche. On apprécie tout de suite mieux la setlist et notamment les nouvelles chansons lorsque l'on voit les jeux de scène. "Raised by Wolf" est mon gros coup de coeur. Le groupe a vraiment su en faire un très bon morceau sur scène avec une grande intensité (et qui bénéficie en plus de l'enchaînement avec "Until the End of the World", toujours lui).
La partie du concert dans l'écran est elle aussi plutôt pas mal, "Invisible" rend vraiment bien même si le fait que le groupe soit en majorité caché donne l'impression de moins profiter de la chanson.
Changements de setlist assez intéressants pour la partie sur la b-stage, avec le doublé "Desire" / "Angel of Harlem" et le tout en électrique.
La fin du concert sera marqué par un beau plantage au début de "Pride" et une version non prévue de "Bad". Je ne me lasserai jamais de cette chanson bien qu'un peu courte malgré le snippet de "Moment of Surrender" (c'est donc tout ce qu'il reste de "No Line on the Horizon"...). Et surtout" 40" que j'ai eu le plaisir de ré-entendre après Amsterdam en 2005. Un très beau moment pour clôturer ce deuxième concert qui m'a vraiment rassuré tant sur ce que propose le groupe comme noyau de la setlist que les aménagements possibles (même s'ils ne sont pas non plus dingues.) ça reste le début de la tournée, le potentiel est là, ne reste plus qu'au groupe qu'à l'exploiter.
Placé plus haut que la veille dans le virage, le son est très bon et bien pêchu. Le groupe semble plus proche et plus détaillé au niveau des instruments et de la voix. Il y a un peu plus de public également mais sans que cela ne soit trop intrusif, surtout des claquements de main, ce qui donne au global un sontrès propre.
A noter : un son légèrement différent à la toute fin de "Until the End of the World", je me suis retourné vers une personne derrière moi qui avait renversé sa bière. Les micros étaient sur ma casquette. Ça dure 2/3 secondes tout au plus.

"There was a mad theory at one point in U2's early days that we were so broke we would start a second band that would perform under a different name and play covers, and would actually earn a living that would support U2, who would continue to perform their own material."
- Paul McGuinness
did you know
The song 'A Day Without Me' was written in response to the suicide of Ian Curtis of Joy Division and reflects Bono's take on the selfishness of suicide, which is the dominant theme of the song.
