Performance

The band sounded great at the show and the only problem was during WOWY when the guitar was having problems but I don't necessarily blame the band for that one.

Sound

I've relistened through this recording which is excellent quality. Some talking from the audience is audible but that's to be expected with an AUD. The music is great quality and not overly distorted, boomy, or quiet.
Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars

Audience

I was seated in the 400s, so there wasn't a lot of excitement up there until Streets started playing. That worked out for me though, because I was sitting most of the show and could see everything in front of me.

Overall

First U2 show I've seen- absolutely insane show. I went into the show spoiler-free, the only thing I knew was they play Achtung Baby. Zoo Station & The Fly were great introductions to Sphere's capabilities. Until the End of the World sounded great as did Wild Horses. Tryin to Throw Your Arms around the world works so much better in a live context then on the album and I really liked Edge's extra guitar work on it.

The turntable set was cool even if it hasn't seen much variation throughout the dates. Like I said, I went in spoiler free. I saw the tour debut of Lovetown, and it's the only version (so far possibly?) that's had a solo in it. The following nights they skip the solo. Love Rescue Me was a highlight of the night with Edge on bass and Bono dedicating it to Israel.

After the turntable they blasted back into Acrobat and then So Cruel, full band. The main set ended with Ultra Violet, which had incredible visuals, and Love is Blindness with a great solo and Viva Las Vegas snippet. Love is Blindness was a highlight for sure.

The encore was high energy but the standouts were Atomic City, Streets and With or Without You. I liked Atomic City in the studio but it works very well live, which I expected. The Moment of Surrender snippet works perfectly in the intro to Streets. Bono sang the Songs of Surrender lyrics on both Streets and With or Without You. Edge's guitar broke on WOWY and he had to get a replacement but he got it back in time for the end of the song. Beautiful Day is different as the closer, but it worked well.

In short, best show I've been to and I want to go again. Highlights were Zoo Station, The Fly, Arms, Lovetown, Love Rescue Me, Ultra Violet, Love is Blindness, Atomic City, Streets, and With or Without You. There wasn't a bad song they played. Absolutely if you can manage it, it's a show worth seeing.
