The show was good. They are arguably one of the greatest rock bands in history and "The Joshua Tree" is unarguably one of the greatest rock albums ever released. All they have to do is come out and play it and it is going to be a good show. And they did that, so it was a good show.

But that said, it was an extremely conservative show. The songs they did other than the JT songs were standard choices altho they did end with a new song. They did on...ly one snippet and I must admit I didn't even notice it at the time. It was even conservative in that they rarely strayed physically from their assigned spots. They have a long walkway on each side and simply didn't use it. There were no long (or short) winded stories about the album or any of the songs. The only attempt made to get the crowd to sing along fell amazingly flat. There was no one brought on stage from the crowd. All of these things have been staples of their show for their entire career.

I've seen them many times and that is the only point of view I can speak from. Hopefully things will loosen up, because those things are the reason I go to U2 shows at this point. I feel badly for all the people who saw them for the first time or may never see them again. The show was good, but U2 did not get to be U2 by being good.
