Bad played in lower key once again... Guess Bono can't handle it for now.

No 40 in Montreal either.

What was crowd reaction to california?

It seemed to go over the best of all the new songs.  Crowd was very into it!  Good energy.

I wish I could go to the new York last night that is going to be mind blowing I bet. That is the one show I would want to be at. I can only imagine the setlist that night like the saying goes the best for last.

In my opinion Chicago 5 was the best show of the five, and it's hard to imagine a better one, although I agree with poster who said Ordinary Love was not his favorite. A small quibble.

Money.... Plus I saw 3 shows in Montreal which were amazing. The cost of the show, hotel, and airfare, I already looked into it around 2000.00 for one night. I am alone and not rich...it will also be my birthday.... So 😔 sad. DONATIONS ANYONE?  LOL...

Definitely try to. I can't even imagine what it will be like. LA5 was mindblowing as well as Montreal and Chicago. Last night of a residency and the US tour makes it all more special. Id guess they do 24 or 25 dogs this night.

I thought nights two and three were the best of the run. Really no surprises on this final night, which in itself was a tad disappointing. Unusual for a final night in Chicago. But on its own merits, certainly nothing to complain about. Too little variation on this tour, plain and simple, especially given Bono's "completely different feeling from night one to night two" comment. Not that I was taking Bono's word for that...

Probably just salty that I won't see U2 again until the (presumed) second U.S. leg. What I need to concentrate on is how incredible nights two and three were; those will stick with me forever.

Side note: does anyone have any idea what Bono's shouting into the megaphone about? I could scarcely understand a word of that. United Center is not ideal, true, but I tried four different general locations in that room and nowhere did it sound great. Something's amiss when the nosebleeds at Soldier Field sounded better than the floor of the United Center. And on past tours it wasn't so bad in there; Elevation sounded terrific from the floor.

Whoops, this went on a bit long. Can't wait 'til the next leg!

COBL/Streets/40 on paper at least is a pretty decent triumvirate to close with

cobl and streets is a kind of replication.

NEVER! Security normally smiles and I oblige as a straggler.

Lots of driving and flying all over the place to see a certain band.  ::)

Kind of. But better that the other 'final 3 song' options
