As I said on Twitter earlier, my rule is that the live U2 I+E show is 50 times better than whatever we see and hear on the great streams that fans are sharing. So, with the stream from Sunday night's show being really amazing, that means the live show will have to go down as one of the best of the tour so far -- and, by all accounts from those who were there, it was.
U2 dusted off an October song that hadn't been played in about 10 years, rehearsed and snippeted another early song that hasn't been played in 26 years, gave a couple other songs only their second performance of this tour, and generally blew the roof off of Chicago's United Center.
Check out the setlist and our loooong recap on @U2 Tours. And if you were at the show, please do post a review and/or upload some photos.
Next up: U2 has the unenviable job of trying to top this with another show -- Chicago #4 -- on Monday night.
