Performance

A strong start with I Will Follow adding a punch that had been missing in earlier concerts. The JT set was the main attraction and didn’t disappoint with the visuals on the screen providing beautiful and striking context. The encore featured 3 AB songs with EBTTRT a nice surprise. The band played with energy and a tried and true formula meeting expectations of casual fans. I would have liked to have seen more Rattle and Hum songs seeing it is that albums 30th anniversary but I can’t complain.

Audience

Lots of crowd singing and phone waving. On the ground the crowd was highly engaged as one would expect.

Overall

I wasn’t originally going to this concert due to the similarity to the 2017 JT tour and the poor venue but managed to get a general admission ticket. I arrived at about 6pm in the rain and battled the crowd trying to buy food and drink from the limited stores available. The SCG is the worst venue in Sydney due to its location, lack of space, poor acoustics and unsatisfactory organisation.
Noel Gallagher stirred up the crowd in his unique way while playing in the rain. He predicted the rain would stop once U2 came on and he was right. It took too long to clear the stage, dry it and prepare it for the main act. U2 didn’t start til 9pm.
Concert was better than I expected and definitely better than the 360 tour 9/10 years ago which lacked energy in comparison. Playing a seminal album gave the concert meaning.
Getting out of the venue at 11pm was tiresome with long queues that also moved slowly.
