Same.

Let's review why this song is so fucking great. Crank it. On the long wide open desert highway with the sun roof open, there is practically nothing better.

Exploding Boy, holy shit! That was awesome. I got really sad when I found out I missed 2 Late the night before, though. I don't like to see setlists for shows if I know I'm attending, so I refrained until the gig. I had a decent time, but knowing I missed out on one of my all-time favorite songs by a day hurts about as much as finding out that I missed Bruce playing I'm on Fire the night before I drove all the way out to St. Louis to see him for my 21st birthday. But that's life when you're a fan of a band that rotates sets, I guess. And Exploding Boy is probably my second favorite b-side of theirs, so we're good.

All in all, the Hollywood Bowl is a gorgeous venue, but I will never go again if I don't get into the lower portion of the bowl. Waaaaaay too far from the stage, video screens were absolutely useless, and everyone around me was more interested in complaining loudly during songs, then just listening to the songs. Since the acoustics are so good, you can hear the music and people talking clear as day. It was awful. Also, once again, I wasn't feeling well. I don't know what's up with my health's timing with concerts, but this can stop any time.

Also just took a look at that Houston setlist. WTF!! That's awesome. Really happy for you Joyful.

I wish there had been a bit less 90s in our set, but overall I enjoyed it. I did NOT care for the encore that ended with Wrong Number, but that last encore, complain about it if you will, but I still find it incredibly fun.

The current final encore is the equivalent of the Pride, Beautiful Day, etc. hit parade U2 was doing on 360. I mean, it's OK, the songs are mostly good, but it felt so much more rehearsed than everything else.

After that third encore the crowd seemed bored out of their minds. Glad they got back into it before they went home.

I'm sure they liked the song choices, but I found the performance during that section uninspired compared to the rest of the show. It does a disservice to the songs because placing them in a static spot prevents some potentially cool interactions from happening.

The simple answer is to spread the songs out throughout the night instead of lumping them together, but honestly, I'm loath to criticize anything related to setlists when it comes to this band because they're still way ahead of the curve. Playing Exploding Boy and In Between Days (its A-side) back to back is what I call an inspired move. U2 certainly isn't playing Luminous Times and WOWY back to back any time soon.

If 2 Late is played tonight, you can all just assume that Travis and I got divorced, cause I cannot attend this evening's programming.

I had a great time, don't get me wrong. If I'd been feeling better, I'm sure it would've been a lot better, though.
