I just spoke with people at the BOK Center.  They said that the line starts with the first person in line at the time announced.  Nobody with magic marker numbers will be allowed to skip ahead of whom

first of all - everyone have a great time tonight, those of us who cannot attend opening night are mega jealous!  For those having angst about the GA line, the heavy metal band Iron Maiden does a cool

WAIT!

No mention was made by anyone about the "Be Attitudes".

Did they feature in the show, and, if so, how?

 

I saw someone tweet that they had used hers. Not sure yet where or how they were used.

That setlist looks great to me...

Since we're seeing them back to back nights, hopefully we'll get most of the substitutions as well (The Showman, Gloria).

Looks like a great night. Hope everyone got home safe and sound, and doesn't have to work today!

?

Cheers.

Hey all. The show was once again amazing. A spiritual experience as it is. I was able to take my young sons to show them what I am always talking about. They had on teal shits that said “my first U2 concert + innocence experience 2018.” Some people asked to take pictures of them to post. If anyone has them I would like a copy or link please. If they made it to Zootopia it would blow their minds!

please no lectures of strangers taking pics of my kids. U2 concert we are all family lol.

I'm just browsing the videos posted by ppl from last nights show....is HMTMKMKM the highlight of the show? I am trying to get ready for work and keeping and eye on my phone...and it's fckibg amazing. I'm trying not to cry off the makeup I just put on.  So so so good. I'm super excited about this show. So brave and it's seems so geared towards the fans. 4 days till San Jose! ???

Acrobat sounded great... Computer generated mcphisto....needs work. Its just wonderful to hear and it's very fitting for the tone of the show. 

I'm OVER streets! Over it. I'm glad it's not being played. So there ??

Thank you!

 

So, those who were there, how were the "Be Attitudes" used in the show?

just watched acrobat on youtube it was awful as i thought it would be  as its rubbish anyway and couldnt understand the clammer for it to be played ,hold me kiss me was even worse what a terrible version.Personally looks like i am  finally going to save some serious money missing the first tour since i travelled to germany  on unforgetable fire tour.Had they been brilliant i would have rued selling my tickets for manchester and london but now so glad i did after suspecting it would go even further down hill than the innocence tour which was their worst ever .

Phill, I've read your two comments, and you made the right move by not going to the concert.  It's not for you, so why spend your money on it?   You want to see U2 playing a greatest hits show, and well, U2 isn't a greatest hits band (although in a 27-song set, there will be some hits).  As others pointed out, The Joshua Tree was just played in its entirety last year, and is taking a break.  Acrobat was about as close to the album version as could be expected, but if you didn't like the song originally, that's your prerogative.  I thought the solo was rendered well in concert.  HMTMKMKM was "intermission music", not a performed song.

Now, as for this fan's opinion....

It looks like a great set list to me.  It's fresh with new material (SoE and SoI), and those are good songs.  I would have not made the exact same selections for some of the older album tracks (All Because of You, Staring at the Sun), and would have actually left out more of the hits (Beautiful Day, Pride, One, Desire).  Sunday Bloody Sunday is only OK because it is supposed to feed into Raised by Wolves.  I could also live without Elevation and Vertigo, but as someone else wrote, they do still energize the crowd to start the second set....
I would have added Red Flag Day and Little Things.  I would have added Love is Blindness to the encore.  Miracle Drug would be good.  Maybe bring back 11 O'Clock Tick Tock to replace I Will Follow in the set.  From the Pop album, I would have chosen Please (single version).  Other songs that would work:  Magnificent, Electrical Storm, Crumbs From Your Table, Walk On, Heartland.

I'm not the one writing in this forum frequently but i have to admit that for a brave setlist like this one the missing track is Streets. I'm sorry guys but I disagree that they didn't play Streets because of the TJT tour, this song is their symbol, it is a pillar of each show, it cannot be skipped, especially if you keep other songs like vertigo, Elevation and you include a useless song like All because of you. I really like to think that the show will evolve and streets will  be back there in its place, the moment of the show where the youngest and oldest fan meet together surrounded by the red lights everywhere. Streets MUST be always there. Many people paid very expensive tickets for those 5 minutes. Please put it back Streets and make our dreams coming true again.

All Because of You is such a great song, full of pozitive energy and it deserves its place on the stelist. I hope they will play All Because of You during the European leg of the tour!

Question:  what were the logistics of the band's placement?

I read somewhere that the first set was played "inside the screen", and the second set was played on the "e" stage. 

But that can't be right, as I've seen YouTube videos of them playing on the main stage and on the catwalk as well.

I have a GA ticket, and in 2015 it paid off to position myself along the catwalk.  Is that a smart move this time, or are they "in the screen" too often? (does that actually mean "on the catwalk"??)

Or should I set up shop next to the "e" stage, and wait for the payoff in the second set?

Right now I'm leaning towards the middle of the catwalk, but don't want to regret it, if the band is up above in/on the screen.
