Performance

I was very worried that the boys would phone it in so to speak but it was early in the first leg and they did not disappoint, Bono on the other hand was forgetting lots of the lyrics or just did not care. I felt that the 360 show at the Rose Bowl had pacing issues this show had them as well. I do understand it is very hard to go from Mothers to another song but going from Mothers to Miss Sarajevo sucked a lot of energy out of the crowd.

I was disappointed that it seemed Adam's base was very low and not higher in the mix, perhaps it was my location.

As for Bono, he seemed very clear headed and not spacey as some of the last tours have been but at times just seemed like he was punching the clock. Larry, Edge and Adam were on it.


Sound

AMAZING

Besides the countdown in Bono's ear (better than the "clicks" you hear on a Larry IEM) this is amazing.

Thank you to the taper, please read the text file that he (she? sorry I'm assuming gender) included. What a show, what a story.

Recording: "Bono IEM - Sennheiser EW300G3" - 4.5 stars

Audience

Full disclosure after 6 360 shows I skipped the I&E tours. I'm tired of the Live Nation bullshit and to be honest the album to me was garbage. *** Hey check my profile, I'm more of a Eno and Lanios era of U2 fan**. I share all of this as this crowd was crap, It was like all the college frat boys who now own the Tesla's and the mansions came to a U2 show, jackass behavior in GA, some guy pushing his way forward saying my friend/family is up there, another group of this is GA deal with it. But more than that, its just LA, people show up late and leave early.

The good of it was I really saw some true fans, the people like me getting pushed around, singing every song, eyes closed thinking back to the LA Coliseum in 87, yeah besides all the other garbage some true fans where there.

0 stars for the jackasses
4 stars for the fans


Overall

Background: I took my 23 year old daughter, first U2 gig after hearing the music all of her life. We had GA tickets, joined the line around 2 am and were just off the tree branch to Larry's left, about 20 people back from the rail. Perfect spot as Bono;s mike was directly to our front, full view of the main stage.

WOW how about the screens behind the band during Streets, you can watch as many videos you want but being there live, almost made you dizzy (cause the world turns and we get dizzy).

RHMT was very very good, the video behind the band, Bono was not phoning it in for this one.

Overall to stand next to my oldest daughter hearing One Tree Hill, tears running down my face was worth every bit of money and is a memory that I will take with me forever. I met her mother as Rattle and Hum came out and although I call her my Actung Baby this album shaped my adult life. This is the second time I have seen the Joshua Tree tour and one could say that the one in 87 was better because it was the past, but no, this was better as I have found what I was looking for and this show was what i needed to remind me of it.

Thank you..... And thank you U2 Start for letting me tell my story.
