Note that this was a fundraiser for a local hospital as well as being included in the SalesForce Convention $1,795 full pass. Most of the folks here were tech folks and not the typical fan you see at a "normal" U2 concert. The audience vibe was missing and Bono desperately tried to create it without much luck. Good sound, predictable set with the exception of a stellar performance of 'California', and strange vibe (-1 star) made this a mixed bag. But I still got to see U2 so it was all good in the end.
This part is only rated, not commented on Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars
Audience was 85% tech folks from DreamForce Conference, and 15% who paid $1K+ per ticket for Hospital benefit. Very few U2 fans. Not a normal U2 concert vibe at all.
It was U2 live in an intimate outdoor setting, so hard to be disappointed. Closing with "40" is always special and was very unexpected.

REMASTERER NOTES: Audio ripped from Youtube, some of Bono's speech are missing, but all music are here... I put some fade in and fade out between the tracks and also put a vol adjustment for the tracks recorded by different people sounds similar and not disjointed... the quality varies between 3,25 and 4,5 stars... my overall rating is bewteen 3,75 and 4 stars.

"I love being there, I love America, I love the feeling of the wide open spaces, I love the deserts, I love the mountain ranges, I even love the cities. So having fallen in love with America over the years that we've been there on tour, I then had to 'deal with' America and the way it was affecting me, because America's having such an effect on the world at the moment. On this record I had to deal with it on a political level for the first time, if in a subtle way."
- Bono, on the Joshua Tree's thematic inspirations

The inspiration for the song Lemon was Bono seeing his mother in some old movies wearing a dress with a yellow tint.
