Pasadena 1 Setlist Party

I was at the show and it was great. I attended with a couple U2 virgins and they were blown away by Edge. Some of those solos were .

As for the setlist, the lead into The Joshua Tree was great. The Joshua Tree was great. The rest was a bit random. I'm still puzzled at the lack of Rattle and Hum songs, Desire at the very least.

Closing with Bad into IWF was interesting and it worked. I still haven't watched any videos of the new song so I'm hoping I get to hear it tonight.

ETA: Pavel isn't the same guy who was pulled on stage last tour, that guy is a local tribute Bono. He was in the Red Zone last night.

I'm amused by all the people speculating "SOE is dead!" after the song missed one show. What I find more revealing is that the band stuck to a 22 song set

Opening with SBS doesn't work and the sound was muddy until WOWY then it got muddy again later.

I didn't think it was possible to do a bad rendition of Ultraviolet but there it was. The randomness of the encore was stupid but at least they played Bad.

Sorry my review is so negative. It was great to see them again but....
Really surprised about your comments on the sound,
we were in GA by the B-stage and thought the sound was excellent the whole show

The show overall was better than I expected given the structure and format

Yeah, there was definitely time for one more short song before curfew. Little Things wouldn't have fit in the four or five minutes left, but they could've done Desire or Out of Control or one of those other short, high-energy songs that they can play at a drop of a hat and would end the show on a high.

Finally home from the show. 10 hour drive both ways but it was well worth, one of my favorite U2 shows I've been to. First time being on the floor in the stadium, which was an experience in it of itself. I absolutely love this picture, just a sea of humanity...



These have to be some of the most attended shows of the NA leg, right? Really curious about attendee numbers.

Anyways, the show was really great. The boys were dialed in... sound was clean and Edge's guitar especially was so damn good. Bono's voice also really impressive and Larry's drumming sounded great. My first ever time hearing Bad live was a real treat, something I've waited for for a long ass time, and it came as a surprise at the end! Loved it.

The screen was immense... we were standing probably 10 rows back from the B stage right in the center and from there it was almost like you were wearing a VR headset - it dominated your perspective in every conceivable way. That was probably the best Streets "experience" I've ever had just because how immediate the red, the blasting lights, and the massive crowd was.

My biggest complaint was that the post TJT set lacked structure and was cobbled together. They could definitely make a few tweaks to that, but overall I had an absolute blast. Can't wait to see this show again in Europe later this summer!

^ this. We were about 10 yards to the right of the b-stage and had a blast. Agree about Edge's guitar and Bono. That screen was stunning.

My favorites were exit, asoh and bad. But the encore felt rushed and disjointed,
We left a bit early and Iam glad . Got straight on the shuttle to parsons,. I honestly would not go to the rose bowl again.
And what's with the pot smoking? We were in section 20 and it was
Ok, so this guy walks by and everyone's goes crazy that it is the Edge . I am the only one who says no it's not. But he was surrounded by security. Was anyone there? A couple people have posted his pic on Facebook and the general consensus is that it was not .

I was never a fan of Exit but seeing it live, it was one of the highlights for sure. Yeah also loved ASOH and finally got to see IGC!

It was Pavel and his team of assholes pretending to be Bono and The Edge, walking through the Red Zone during the Lumineers with fake security.

I can't believe no one has started following Pavel around yelling "YOU'RE NOT BONO YOU'RE NOT BONO." That needs to happen.

That effing guy, man.

does anyone know who came up and down the steps in section 15/17 (right of 16)? Not fake Bono. Appeared to be a star of some sort, people going nuts, but I couldn't see from my seat.


And Section 16 had to contain Willie Nelson and Snoop because I was close to getting a contact high from the sheer amount of smoke blown there. I was in row 60.

Lowlight was the security guard in Sec 16 who just decided, for no apparent reason, to recheck tickets at the tunnel for everyone who left to go to the bathroom or grab a drink after the Lumineers. Umm...these were seats, nowhere near GA. We have seats. Tickets that can confirm. If someone is in the wrong seats, then we can figure it out. But this one guy (I ran to the other two tunnels to see if anyone else was doing this...nope) decided to recheck everyone's ticket up in the tunnel front, and people were pushing, some were walking around thinking it was something else then getting stopped, showing their ticket ahead of the entire line, and going, and then some douche grabbed his girl and started pulling her through everyone, bumping and nearly knocking people over. Used the poor girl like a rudder...
