Quick review (I've still only had a little over 2 hours sleep)...I'm not going to review every song.
Bono's voice was pretty strong throughout the evening...sounded really good, just a couple of missed notes. The screen was quite impressive.
Bad was wonderful...Edge was on fire (I just HAD to say that!)
Streets...I literally had tears running down my face during that long, beautiful intro.
WOWY...Edge had a problem with the infinite guitar...which he quickly remedied.
BTBS...awesome, again Edge was just on fire.
RHMT...a little weak, but nice.
TTYW...fun, fun, fun!
OTH...beautifully performed.
Exit was definitely the best song of the night...the band were so spot on. Unbelievable.
Elevation! YAY! I thought of an tha during this entire song...the crowd loved it, and it looked like the guys enjoyed playing it.
Vertigo rocked the house.
You're The Best Thing...very good! I wasn't completely sure how I felt about this song until I saw it live...it's great!
UV...I can die happy now.
One, with a DROWNING MAN snippet! YES YES YES

I stick with my view of "arena's are better", but this show was really impressive. I honestly think SOI was a better show, overall, but I had a WONDERFUL time.

Oh...Beck was so loud that the sound was distorted...my friend and I actually left our seats after two songs and went out where we couldn't hear it so well. I like loud music, but...not if you can't even understand the words due to distortion.

I need a nap...

I'm pretty agree with you on TJT tour - RHMT was a weak point (the second show I used it as a bathroom break).  The tour was a blast but not as good as I+E. Seeing Best Thing and Drowning Man snippet at Arrowhead was awesome, seeing ASOH in Chicago was sublime.  I really am into Best Thing after seeing it live.

Too bad about Beck...maybe because I saw it in an open air stadium the sound disapated better?

Yeah, Beck's sound was distorted. I was close to the rail by main stage on Adam's side and I got the blunt of it! He sounded way better in Minny and Indy. We'll see if it's better in SD as I have ga too.

Bono was very strong and he wasn't as chit-chatty, which was perfectly fine.

What did did you get there? How far were you from rail?

I walked in about 15 minutes after doors opened. Most people crowd at the rails by the catwalk and tree stage, so the area on the rail by Adam stays open enough until Beck comes onstage and then it fills in.

I started about two people back and then moved myself a little further away.  I don't deal with drunk idiots very well and when you mix that nonsense with crowds it can get annoying.

The stadium had it's retractable roof open, but I guess that's not the same as completely open air. Luckily, U2 were not as loud, and not distorted.

I forgot something in my review: IGC was outrageously good! And, Larry was like that Energizer Bunny through the entire show.

With the acid trip tree.  That was a highlight for me too.

That tree WAS pretty trippy wasn't it?
