Meh

Awesome performance, but they admitted that their best work is 20-30 years behind them. It's disappointing for me. This concert marks the date U2 became a nostalgia act, much like Keith Moon's death was for The Who.

On the other hand, Edge really was on fire.

Fantastic! The order of the setlist could have been slightly better and up until 'One/Streets' they weren't exactly flying, but from then on it was one of their best shows. Bono was magnificent!  :)

+1. The songs were great, especially the opening. But they didn't even play 20 songs, no reason at all. It was their choice and they were too lazy.

Consider how incredibly jetlagged they must be though. I'd rather them take it easy and be back in top form for Michigan on Sunday.

I'm tempted to say I preferred Bruce and I'm actually more looking forward to Beyonce on Sunday night than ever before.

I bet they'll do a better show in Michigan than they did tonight.

Little can go wrong in a performance that is 100% pre-recorded. ;)

I loved it. Obviously we all have our setlist ordering/inclusion/omission wishes, but the show was absolutely great.

I thought they were brilliant. The whole band were sounding great and Bono's vocals were perfect.
And the set list was pretty much spot on. I think they should have dropped Boots and MOS - Breathe would have
been a better one from NLOTH.

I really enjoyed the performance. I thought the band played really well

Saying that, I really think having One/Streets later in the set and perhaps throwing one 'surprise' song in the middle would have improved it

Edit: the snippets were fantastic also
