This is an interesting concert... set 1 countains some screw ups by Larry, Bono and Edge in some songs, but ok... Adam was on fire!! set 2 is very good, maybe the best performance of Mysterious Ways since Irving Plaza, even without solo, Edge improvise some singing at end due to Bono's interaction with the girl on stage... beautiful... All I Want Is You was played for the first time on tour and sounds great, 40 close the show, second time on the tour and performance is way better than first.
Both sources sounds 4 stars to me Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
They were great
Good performance, good sound, great setlist and great crowd
Highlights: The Miracle, Raised By Wolves, Mysterious Ways (surprisingly excellent), When Love Comes To Town, Bullet The Blue Sky (great performance by Adam and brief snippet of Black Dog not listed), All I Want Is You and 40

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”.

Dernier de mes 4 concerts. Je suis sorti avec un avis un peu mitigé. J'espérais vraiment "11 O'Clock Tick Tock", et quand le groupe a commencé "The Electric Co.", je me suis dit que je n'aurai même pas le plaisir de ré-entendre "Out of Control" (pourtant prévue à l'origine sur la setlist). Et le concert jusqu'à "Angel of Harlem" m'a semblé un peu long même si toujours aussi efficace (quand on voit l'écran).
"Mysterious Ways" avec Edge aux choeurs sur la fin de la chanson à été vraiment très bonne, tout comme "When Love Comes to Town", dans une version électrique sans fausse note. La bonne surprise est venue de "All I Want Is You", pour une première sur cette tournée, très bien enchaînée avec "With or Without You". Je pense vraiment qu'il y a quelque chose à faire à ce moment là du concert pour ajouter un peu de changement entre les concerts, sans que cela demande de déployer les gros moyens avec l'écran.
Et pour finir, à défaut d'avoir eu "Out of Control", j'ai échappé à "One" façon iNNOCENCE+eXPERIENCE que je n'aime vraiment pas, pour "40" qui conclue, elle, parfaitement les concerts.
Un concert au final très bon, dans le même esprit que le concert du 27. Ne reste plus qu'à prendre un peu plus de risques sur les différentes dates d'une même ville pour proposer une expérience vraiment intéressante pour les fans.
Retour en arrière scène côté Edge, quasiment au même endroit (quelques rangs plus haut) que pour le concert du 27.
Un très bon son, dans la continuité des précédents, plutôt équilibré, quoique souffrant d'un léger écho.
Une fille dans mon entourage à pas mal crié et surtout j'étais à côté d'une allée donc on peut entendre un peu de passage de temps à autre.

"I like to see Bono working under pressure, 'cause he's a great improviser, and I think he sings notes, sings words much better when he's a bit desperate. That's when the soul comes through."
- Adam, 1983
