This was my fifth U2 concert, first stadium show. I sat lower level slightly stage-right (Edges side). Overall the concert production was incredible, the band was tight, sound crisp, and setlist good but mostly predictable.

On the production: Id seen many photos and video of the stage, but it was so much larger seeing it in real life. The top spire was literally taller than the bowl of soldier field. The lights, video, and sound were just out of this world.

The setlist was pretty good--lots of new stuff at the beginning and then lots of hits after.

What I liked: I had seen/heard clips of the remix of Crazy and I was not a fanat all. I was dreading it being in the setlist. My opinion changed entirely after seeing them perform it live. The beats were danceable, the crowd was into it, and the band looked like they were having so much fun with it. Hats off to U2 for proving me wrong.

What I did not like: The sing-a-long treatment for Unknown Caller was a nice idea, but the song in my opinion is just not that great. It was a lull in the set. Walk On, which is a great song, was overdone with the volunteers wearing Aung San Suu Kyi masks on stage. I know Bono means well, but it was a lame canned effort at awareness.

Highlights for me:
- Stand By Me
- Unforgettable Fire
- Bad
- Ultraviolet

Of all the concerts and bands Ive seen, U2 alone consistently puts on amazing shows tour after tour that leave me blown away. Go see the 360 touryou wont regret it.
