Last show Bono didn't want to leave so it looks like they built it in this time.

They're doing little things the way it was in vancouver. Bass part before the drums kick in.

Damn great show. I was about five people away from the B stage facing Bono.

Literally just got back to toronto from pittsburgh.
Few thoughts of the show:
1) Sections on upper deck tarpped off and unsold lower level seats not sold at end of stadium (maybe could be obstructed view from the sound booth).

2) From my section 114 sound was great.  Really nice crisp clean sound.  If anything I would of hope for a little more bass. Not to say you couldn't hear the bass, but it wasn't that it hits you in the chest type bass.  In comparison 360 was more bassier  than this one.  But overall great sound for a stadium show.  Again I don't know how it sounded on other sections.

3)Huge disappointment for my brother and I that ASOH wasn't played and to find out it was on the printed setlist and not played makes it hurt more.  Not that Bad is not a good replacement but I have already heard Bad several times over the years.  Would have been great to hear them both in them same show though.  Still got 2 more tries (toronto and buffalo).

4)Audience participation was not so good the times Bono prompted the audience to sing.  Really hope if they decide to make a DVD they film one of the South America shows.   However, I have to said the crowd at least where I was sitting was standing from song 1 right until the end.

5)JT performance- Hearing the album in full was great.  Audience really loved the first half but they kind of fade away from Red Hill to Mothers which you can tell  the hardcore fans enjoyed more.

6)Red Hill Mining Town, once I heard it live is not as bad as I originally said based on youtube videos.  It was actually good but still would have like to hear the guitar version.

7)Side 2 performance of JT.  What can I say other than just Amazing.  Exit is a beast!!

8)As others who have seen the show before have said,  Miss Sarajevo has got to go.  It is just a momentum killer and it just doesn't work. 

9)Another complaint that others have said also is that there is just too much preaching for my liking during the set.  You got the one campaign poverty issue, Red issue, Syria and refugee crisis the whole trump thing, the woman rights issue during Ultraviolet.  These are all important and valid issues but in my opinion just too much to put in one night.

10)Last but not least but my major complaint- This show is too god damn SHORT!!  U2 took the stage at 8:50 and show end at 10:50.  Exactly 2hrs.  They could have easily played 1 if not 2 more songs before 11:00.  they could have at least thrown in I Will Follow and still ended at 11:00.  Come on guys, you make a lot of money and ticket price are expensive,  all we ask is for just a little more value with a few more songs and not even asking to get into 3hrs marathons.

Well that is my two cents!
