Definitely positive i saw people taking extended video getting warned. This show is starting way late! I cant figure out how to log in and comment from desktop, tech illiterate.
I saw a photo on Twitter about 15 minutes ago and there were still tons of empty seats. I have heard that LA is notoriously a late crowd.

On another thread, a few fans discussed how Bruce Springsteen frequently changes up the set to play rarities. Here are a few reasons why I think U2 canít do what he does.
(1) Relevance . . . .
(2) Musicianship . . . .
(3) Band Democracy . . . . .
(4) Show Length . . . . .
(5) Set Rigidity . . . . .
So, why not play Acrobat? Beats me.
That's a well-written first post.   :)

Because of comments posted by other people, this is the first time I have ever thought about the video screens matching the songs .  Let me make sure I understand this.  Do the video screens have a program that plays videos . . . . . . and those videos relate to each song in the set-list?  And if the set-list is changed too much, does changing the video program become a hassle?  I am trying to understand how it works.

And if there were no videos to deal with, would there be a higher chance of having a more varied set-list?  If U2 played Acrobat or Heartland or Winter or Promenade or Do You Feel Loved and there were no videos . . . . . I would be thrilled !  But my desires are irrelevant because . . . . . musicians, band managers, and concert promoters are convinced the audience wants videos at concerts.  And they also think the audience wants to hear lots of hit songs.

Having written all that, imagine a U2 concert . . . . . with no video screens.  It would be similar to being at a U2 concert between 1980 to 1983.  Just music.

On the Periscope?  I don't think you can comment on desktop.
