Comments: U2 headline the iHeartRadio Music Festival. With the exclusion of some small acoustic gigs and impromptu performances, this is the first time Desire has opened a show. It was performed in a style reminiscent of the Hollywood Mix. Bono repeatedly made negative references to US presidential candidate Donald Trump; fake dollar bills were launched into the crowd with slogans on them such as "Dis-United States of America" and "make America hate again". With Or Without You was on the printed set as the final song after I Still Haven't Found but it was not performed. The outro music was Patti Smith's People Have the Power, which in 2015 was the usual opening music at Innocence + Experience Tour concerts.

Performance

Note that this was a fundraiser for a local hospital as well as being included in the SalesForce Convention $1,795 full pass. Most of the folks here were tech folks and not the typical fan you see at a "normal" U2 concert. The audience vibe was missing and Bono desperately tried to create it without much luck. Bono also went off on a far-left rant about Donald Trump spewing out some disinformation in the process (-1 star). I know it is Bono and U2, but he went over the edge (no pun intended) IMHO. Good sound, predictable set with the exception of a stellar performance of 'California', and strange vibe (-1 star) made this a mixed bag. But I still got to see U2 so it was all good in the end.

Sound

This part is only rated, not commented on
Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars

Audience

Audience was 85% tech folks from DreamForce Conference, and 15% who paid $1K+ per ticket for Hospital benefit. Very few U2 fans. Not a normal U2 concert vibe at all.

Overall

Bono ruined whatever vibe there was with his anti-Trump rant based on parroted rhetoric.
