Glad you enjoyed it bman. They skipped One the first show I saw them but played it the second. It seems like about 1/3 of the show is changing each night and you don't know exactly what's coming. Looking forward to night three in nyc
They were great Thursday in Chicago. They were getting ready to walk off stage but Bono grabbed the boys for a last song, 'One'. The crowd sung the entire song, Bono chimed in just a few times.
The new sound system they have is great, though maybe one touch loud. Curious your thoughts?
Glad you got the hear One. To answer your thoughts on the sound system it was very load. But that's the way I like it as it brings an aspect to the music you don't get at lower volumes. I think it also has to do with the fact that my hearing is not the best having suffered fairly significant noise damage from decades of booming concerts.
For the two LA shows I saw last month, I was on the floor within 10 to 20 feet of the main stage both nights and it was particularly loud. For the NYC show next month at MSG I plan to sit higher up for a few reasons but mostly because I want to take in the multi media spectacle from a distance. I want to experience that aspect better than one can from up front. I'm also interested to hear the sound system in a more ambient way.
In Montreal we were in the front row of the third of four levels of seating. In other words, just above the giant screen, which as you say was no doubt a very different perspective from lower level seating. It would be fun to see the show from the floor and compare the two experiences.
