PEOPLE KNOW THE SONGS. Stop using it as an excuse not to play them.
I heard that too. I wish he picked up where we left off instead of starting over. Would have been a lovely moment.

Los Angeles #1 Setlist Party

This set list just really continues to leave me less than enthused. Cool they’re playing acrobat, red flag day and are seeming to be keeping gloria for the time being but other than that...

Yup. I actually really like that song. It’s a bit cheesy, but fun and an infectious groove. But, this version is indeed boring as shit. It’s too slow and Bono’s delivery is like a creepy lounge singer.

The new songs sounded great (even American Soul!). SATS with the Charlottesville images was the most powerful moment for me. One critique is I think they should be playing Streets in COBL’s slot. And stick something before One in the encore. Otherwise, I retract my previous setlist complaints (including recycling the iNNOCENCE suite). Sure it may stay static and this is boring for us at home, but the show has a huge impact live. Keep it up boys. No legacy acts here.


Oh, and #something
Good to hear it!

So it seems like the best spot in GA is closer to the e-stage while maybe still having a view of the main stage/screen?

I loved my spot, but there were two downsides:
1. Main stage could be hard to see at times. For most of the night I could find a window, but I never got a good view of all four of them playing there
2. Could not see Bono inside the screen on Cedarwood Road since I was 2-4 people away from the catwalk. I really didn't care, but thought I'd mention it.
