On a set list basis, Seattle. ASOH needs to be in every show...

In terms of tightness of the band and Bono's voice, I'd say Louisville has been the best.

I was at Chicago 1 and it was terrific but won't count that cuz when you're actually there...well...it changes everything.

I think they played DC the best so far, but the best set list was probably Seattle.  I enjoyed Chicago 2 as well, but I was there so that might skew it.

1 or 2?  I was at 1, and while I liked the show quite a bit, I'm still not sure what I thought of their actual performance.

I haven't seen or heard enough of the tour (especially better quality recordings) to judge comprehensively, but I was at Seattle and Vancouver. Seattle not only had a setlist with A Sort of Homecoming and Bad, and the I Will Follow closer, it also had Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam taking a verse of Mothers of the Disappeared (as well as contributing backing vocals along with Mumford and Sons). Beyond the setlist and guests, I will say that having seen 17 shows over the years and listened to hundreds on tape, and with Vancouver to compare, that the performance (especially from Edge) was as good as the setlist. It seemed obvious that Edge was making up for his technical hiccups on opening night, and he was as tight and aggressive as I can remember.

By comparison, while it was amazing being on the floor in Vancouver for so many firsts and revivals, the performance was objectively a little sloppy and marred by technical problems.

The return of the Mysterious Ways slide solo for Edge's Anniversary in Philly was great.  Plus I was there.  It made me focus less on some of the controversial wall pictures.

Great Energy.  Voice was perfect. Good Crowd.

Went to both Rose bowls and both Chicago. Louisville was better than those!
