The band was spot on! Bono improvising some lyrics, but when is that ever a surprise?
Highlights for me were Iris, Cedarwood Road, Raised By Wolves, City Of Blinding Lights, Streets, and I Still Haven't Found.
Iris: Super powerful performance added with the well-fitting visuals actually made me tear up a bit
Cedarwood Road: Totally blown away by the fact that Bono walks into the screens!!! Plus, Edge just tears things up here.
Raised By Wolves: Powerful lead-in from SBS and a very strong performance. Bono letting out the anger and rage enhances the experience.
COBL: Really solid performance, albeit with an awkward introduction of a young boy. Still, the band works with Bono on this one and makes magic happen. The visuals were extremely fitting for the song, probably the most fitting of all the tours in which it was performed.
Streets: Streets this time was dedicated to (RED), an organization that works to eradicate HIV/AIDS. Mother and Child Reunion is a very powerful lead. Streets itself is really, really strong. Even though this song has been performed since forever, it felt fresh.
This part is only rated, not commented on Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
I spent the evening running around the GA floor, getting close to band sometimes while standing afar to admire the screens otherwise. I always rate this a 4 because I don't really know what a 5 star audience looks/sounds like. The people I queued up and waited around with were 5 star fans, but there were people milling around during the show. I will say that the crowd responded amazingly to the hits.
Amazing! Absolutely amazing! You are in for a real treat. The show actually plays a bit more like theater with many subplots, narratives, and overarching themes. The songs and visuals paint a vivid story, perhaps of U2 itself, throughout the years. The most interesting aspect of the show is how U2 effectively works this very long stage. It's certainly not as big as The Claw, but the band fills up the space nonetheless. I want to highlight the fact that there is much to experience both near and far from the band. Such a great atmosphere and so glad to be a part of it!

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”.

3ème concerts de cette villégiature à Los Angeles. Après le concert privé donné au Roxy l'avant veille, je me prenais à rêver.
J'ai pas rêvé longtemps. Le groupe a (déjà) livré une prestation carrée, sans surprise.
Il y a bien eu l'arrivée d'"Elevation" et de "Stuck In A Moment" mais peut-on parler de vraies surprises concernant ces chansons là ? Certes la version de "Stuck" était franchement pas mal, avec Edge au piano et le retour d'une version full band (en même temps c'était pas compliqué de faire pire que la version acoustique du 360°), mais quitte à jouer du "All That You Cant' Live behind", j'aurai préféré "Kite" ou "New York".
Une fin de concert sympa sur "I Still Haven't Found", qui répond à une mes attentes depuis pas mal de temps, à savoir conclure le concert sur une chanson différente chaque soir. Je trouve ça très intéressant et ça redonne un peu d'intérêt à la fin du concert.
Face à la scène dans le virage de droite, le son est plutôt bien équilibré et clair. Je trouve néanmoins que la voix de Bono sature un peu, surtout lorsqu'il chante un peu plus fort...
Malheureusement, une de mes voisines de derrière à été un peu bruyante par moment, avec des "ouhouh" et cris de manière occasionnelle pendant tout le concert et principalement sur les chansons jouées sur la mini scène et "Pride".

"Paul is dead! I'm fucking Bono! This is Larry Mullen Jr., this is THE EDGE TO YOU! This is Adam! and WE ARE THE GREATEST ROCK AND ROLL BAND...on the north side of Dublin!"
- Bono as MacPhisto introducing the band in Berlin, 2018
did you know
On tour in Australia in the autumn of '89 Larry had told Bono that if this is what it meant for U2 to be superstars, he didn't like it. It was one of the reasons for the musical and artistic revolution in the nineties.
