I’m sure this has already been said but WE GOT RED FLAG DAY finally. I’ve seen four of seven shows on the tour and they played at the three I hadn’t seen up to this point :lol: It sounded so good - stoked. I have no voice left. 

 

Oh, and I finally caught pages falling from the ceiling tonight! 

Going tomorrow and I’m putting all my energy into hoping they play RFD again.

Just home from the first show in LA and wow... what a dissapointment. Let me first say this was my 41st U2 show since 1985 so I am no band wagon fan. But the amount of Anti-trump references, "we know better than you" and other patronizing rhetoric from Bono was sickening. One particular video display inferred that Trump supporters were KKK members. Really Bono? It must be so easy to pontificate from high above on a platform of stardom and wealth. Did you happen to notice the empty seats and HUGE open space on the GA floor area Bono? Maybe you should talk less and sing more. I want to continue to support the band I love but for God's sake..don't add to the division in this country set in motion by our radical 44th president.

The songs from Experience album are those ones I have preferred since the first listening, especially Lights of Home, I would add Book of your heart! Great set list!

My first show was also 1985, at the Worcester Centrum.  I have attended every tour since then.

U2 have ALWAYS been political, and if you don't like that, this is probably not the right band for you.  I am not quite sure how you managed to attend 41 shows and not pick up on this.

I just got back from the LA show and you are wrong.  It was sold out.  There is extra space at the Forum on the GA floor for safety, but all tickets were sold.  Tickets for tomorrow's show are $500 on stubhub for the floor, only 9 seats left. 

So you are inaccurate, my friend.  

You also should probably take note that most Americans disapprove of Trump.  Especially in cities like Los Angeles.  That does not mean you aren't entitled to your opinion.  But, as Bono said tonight, maybe try respecting the opinions of others and "if you can't keep an open heart, keep an open mind."

Perhaps most importantly, it was a fantastic show.  U2 have still got it.

The KKK on the screen are actual Trump supporting KKK members.  That doesn’t imply that all Trump supporters are KKK, but you should certainly pause for a deep think about why the man you put in office refused to denounce Nazis and the Klan in Charlottesville.  I don’t think you realize how over the line that was.  Bono also said “There is no them, there’s only us.”  Racism and violence is part of us as Americans and as humans and rather than complain about musicians bringing it up, it would be better to do think about it, examine it and do something about it.

approx. +- around 8.35-ish, give or take...

about the parking... no idea.

Parking a complete disaster!!! Get there early. The Lots cannot accommodate the capacity due to construction, and you will have to park miles away in INGLEHOOD and walk it if u don't.  Poor venue selection by U2!!!!  To boot, They ran out of GA floor wristbands at the gate, so I was let in without one, only to be escorted off the floor during the concert because i wasn't wearing a wristband??? The Forum is currently a joke of a venue.  What's next, the Olympic???

If it helps anyone for tonight, I arrived at 6:30/6:45 last night and the lot was already getting full. If it’s possible, I’d arrive early to avoid frustration this evening. 

Band went on around 8:35/8:40.
