Of all the U2 shows I've attended this was far and away my worst U2 concert experience. The band was terrific as always, the venue was AWFUL. Levi's Stadium was understaffed in every way. There were HUGE lines to get into the stadium, HUGE lines for food and drink and the accessibility to both bathrooms and concessions from the field was AWFUL! I will NEVER attend another event at Levi's Stadium and hope U2 will not play there ever again!

30th Anniversary of Joshua Tree, where has the time gone. I knew I needed to
do this show since my original Joshua Tree tour recordings were some of the
most well known recordings from a 35 year taping career. How times have changed.
For those shows we had 60 pounds of gear and help from security. Now we have
2 pounds of equipment but need to really work to get tickets, beat walk through
metal detectors, wands and stupid security rules. I got down there early and
was waiting for another taping friend who had my ticket reserved. My friends
ended up running late and getting caught in traffic meanwhile there were rumours
of an earlier start due to curfew and train issues. While I was killing time
listening to my 11/15/87 recording in the car I ran the battery down. Dumb move
and another jump in the stress level. I heard from a fellow taper who got his gear
in and I said I would be late so make sure to capture the opener Mumford and Sons
since I didn't expect to be in by the start. My friends showed up, I packed up
his gear since better to have one point of failure sneakking gear in. Got to
security and passed through almost unscathed. They wouldn't let me bring in my
oranges. Since when is a tasty little tangerine a security risk? Next stop was
the bathroom to get set up. Both of us went into a handicapped stall together to
get rigged up (it is SF) and we went out to the GA floor. Security then said no
plastic water bottle and I had to pour it into a cup. Poured the water bottle into
a cup, found my spot and poured the cup back into the bottle. Had about 10-15
minutes and spotted the other taper 30 feet to my left. Mumford and Sons came on
and played for about 50 minutes. Between bands it got quite a bit more crowded
and then a bit before 9 Larry Mullen Jr starts walking around the stage and makes
his way to the B stage which was anout 20 feet in front and to my left. He sits
down and starts the drum intro to Sunday Bloody Sunday. As they blast into the song
I notice how good it sounds. The first part of the stage is on the B stage but I
am looking straight ahead not seeing much of the band but enjoying every note. From
there they blast into one early vintage song after another. The video screens are
also entertaining and I am pretty sure I recognized the road they used in the video
footage during Where The Streets Have No Name. For me this was the best U2 show in
a long long time. There was some political overtones which were expected and enjoyable
and Bono was able to convey his view that we all are on this planet together so we
should all work to make it a better place. Before I knew it the set was over and
we were waiting on an encore. This was generally newer material and they ended
right at 11 on a high note. Made my way back to my car and my friend was waiting
with jumper cables. Got the car started and made it home after a great evening. Enjoy this one.
Just the basic taper requests here and please no vitriol:
Don't be an ass by selling this or using it in a video that is sold
Don't modify the info file
Don't remaster and/or post on other sites that are not 100% free
If shared keep info file intact but create a second file with any changes
Don't convert to lossy formats except for personal use
Do support the artists

"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
