Performance

Second night of U2's stay in Pasadena and once again the band is in absolutely top form.

Audience

I had GA tickets this time around and the audience was absolutely 100% into this show. Fantastic atmosphere!

Overall

I attended night 1 with seat tickets and this time I had GA tickets. Wow, what a completely different experience it was. To start with, being on the floor gives you an entirely different perspective regarding the stage and screen. While this stage is by far one of the simplest we've seen in a few tours, it still draws you in with its massive scale.

The show is organized into three segments, an intro segment, the Joshua Tree segment, and the final encores segment. The first segment featured songs performed on the B Stage without the screen. This helps emphasize the songs and the showmanship of the band members themselves. Compared to the previous night, we did not get A Sort Of Homecoming, so this segment felt very brisk and soon enough we were into the second segment of the show. The Joshua Tree segment is definitely the crown jewel of the show and the performances clearly display that. This time I found Exit to be the highlight of the segment, amazingly powerful and passionate. The final segment featured some changes in the set order compared to the previous night. The highlight of this segment is Bad, by far. Another surprise performance was that of The Little Things That Give You Away, which was absent from the previous night. This new song served to close the show and I found it to be an amazing way to close out the show and made me excited for the new album.

Being in GA gave me a totally different experience compared to my show in the seats. When you are in GA, the screen occupies your entire field of view. When the screen turns on at the start of Streets, the atmosphere completely changes. In this tour, GA is definitely the way to go. This evening featured many strong performances as did the previous night, but in terms of how they want the show outside of the Joshua Tree set to flow, it seems like the band is still trying to flesh out the details. One thing is for certain is that this band is absolutely on fire. The creative team deserves a lot of credit for understanding how to best accompany each song with film and when to let the band's performance speak for itself. Ultimately, this is a show much better enjoyed in person than through recordings.
Excellent performances in combination with largely political undertones made for a very powerful show.
