Comments: Tour debuts of Volcano and Ordinary Love. Edge has piano problems before Every Breaking Wave so Bono fills time by talking to the crowd. He promises one fan that The Crystal Ballroom will be performed by the end of the tour, and talks about his joy in Ireland's successful referendum for marriage equality after spotting a "Lesbians for Bono" sign ("Bono is for lesbians!" he replies). He then pulled an Elvis Presley impersonator on stage, who sang part of Can't Help Falling in Love and led the audience in singing the title line. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

I really like the show.... Edge's best performances until now... best setlist, but wasn't best Bono's pertormance, he was wrong in Out of Control and was sings so fast, and before other members's parts on several songs, still isn't the perfect show, but is the best on many points... Volcano and Ordinary Love sounds both great, The Troubles is back... Bono sings in a calm way, good performance too, the other songs sounds well...
After Ordinary Love, band have problems with piano, so Bono made a little talk show with the audience and also with an Elvis lol... They have a chance to drop EBW acoustic, but they didn't that (piano problem was a signal lol)
Both are good sources, 4 stars.... "Elvis Has Left... " is louder, other source is a bit low but with all instruments clean Recording: "Elvis Has Left The Building" - 4 stars
This part is only rated, not commented on
Edge was on fire, but Bono not (different than Vancouver)... great setlist, and good performance also, great sound... great new songs and... what a comeback for Troubles!!! surprisingly, Bullet the Blue Sky was the wrost performance on this show (Bono out of tune at end, but the rest of song was good)
Highlights: The Miracle, Iris, Raised by Wolves, Volcano, Ordinary Love, The Troubles and setlist

"So this is just my second recording [Section 225, row 19] ever.
My first was at the May 26 show but it was just ok and not worth
sharing in light of the others shared here. This one came out better
although the gain on the mic was set a bit low. I ran the lightning
cable extension to my hat where I cut a hole for the mic. They really
mixed up the setlist so it makes for an interesting show. There was a
long break before "Every Breaking Wave" as The Edge’s piano was
malfunctioning and Bono was stalling for time by chatting away.
The recording is good for what it is but it doesn’t really compare to
a “real rig”. Hopefully you guys will enjoy it."

The band / performance:
The four Northside Dubliners make their return to the recently refurbished Forum for the fifth and final night
of their Los Angeles residency (sixth if you include their KROQ promotional club show, so aptly recorded by JEMS).
The band performed for nearly 2 1/2 hours to a capacity crowd. On the surface, it may appear strange that the set
was dominated by "Songs of Innocence" (nine in total!); an album that the band "couldn't giveaway" nine months ago.
However, the album has a natural ebb and flow to it and has the added benefit of telling a narrative of the band's
early formative years. After years of over the top stage productions with spaceships and claws, I commend them on
their decision to return to arenas and to scale the production back. The stage design allows nearly everyone in the
audience a closer view of the band at some point in the performance. I was located directly above the "e" stage which
afforded me a bird's eye view for the majority of the second half of the show. Unfortunately, I was not able to see
the massive two storey monolithic LED screen that was lowered across the center catwalk. The band would perform inside
the screen at different intervals during the night. The band was tight and well-rehearsed and Bono's voice was in fine
form. No doubt aided by the band's "two nights on - two nights off" itenerary. After all is said and done, the band
will make 70+ stops across 20 cities around the world over the next seven months. The set saw the tour debut of
"Volcano" and "Ordinary Love". The performance overall seemed a bit subdued. The band is clearly still mourning the
loss of their fallen comrade, Dennis Sheehan. Still it was nearly flawless. The two exceptions were a problem with the
"e stage" piano at the beginning of "Every Breaking Wave" in which The Edge was forced to retreat to the main stage.
During that time Bono brought up a 70's-era Elvis impersanator from the audience, who regailed the audience with a verse
of "Can't Help Falling In Love". Also, one of his guitar effects didn't trigger during one of the WTSHNN verses. All in
all it was a great show!
It's a fairly solid pull from the fifth row of The Forum's proverbial "cheap seats" (Upper Section). This section used
to be called "The Collonade" when the Showtime Lakers and Gretsky-era Kings played here. The 60m that the MSG Group spent
in 2013 saw upgraded seats that didn't afford any extra legroom as they didn't change the configuration of the interior
bowl. Still, even these nosebleed seats afford a much better view than those at Staples Center, which are situated atop
three storeys of suites. Parking here is still a mad dog's breakfast , but that's a whole other story (YIKES!) This
section has the added benefit of having the most direct path to the ceiling stacks that are configured in a large ellipse
above the runway stage. I was situated directly in front of a small projection screen with speakers on either side.
Unfortunately, I had no direct "line of sight" to any single speaker. Still, the people directly in front of me were
situated in a Box section 2 feet below me and they were very quiet. There is very little chatter on the recording. That
being said, I did mildly attenuate a bit of clapping. Also, one dude behind me screams out "Gloria" between songs on 3
occasions. I did expand the frequency response a tad and tried to define the bass a bit more in order to reduce the "boom
in the room" sound. Still, it sounds pretty decent for an arena pull. I'll let you be the judge. On a final note, the
intermission portion was parsed as it contains a prerecording of Johnny Cash's "The Wanderer" in its entirety.
Tour (live?) debut of "Volcano". It's still a little rough aroung the edges but Adam's bass playing makes up for the lack of
polish. "City Of Blinding Lights". The band just killed it on this song! The recording of this sounds pretty distant though.
Wish we could have gotten "Bad", "40" or "A Kind of Homecoming". Maybe time to trade out "Pride", "Bullet" or "Streets";
blasmephy to be sure. "Desire" and "Still" did get the night off, though.
