May 19, 2015 – San Jose, California, USA – SAP Center at San Jose

I’m saying it here and now, I believe night two in San Jose was better than night one – do we see a trend happening here? It almost makes me wish I was going to night two in LA instead of night one…okay, let’s not get carried away here. Phoenix is Friday and Saturday; in the meantime, here’s my quick recap of U2’s second and final night in San Jose. Highlights included Electric Co (last played in 2006!), Bono wishing Joey Ramone happy birthday twice, saying that he was writing Song for Someone “for a girl named Allison Stewart” at age 18, and bringing a young fan named Jacob onstage for City of Blinding Lights, plus the addition of Bad, which Bono said was “not on the schedule” before tonight.

This was a superior show, and I want to thank the good people of the #U2ietour thread on Twitter for staying engaged with me: @johnnyo217, @U2coholics, my Facebook buddy Adrienne Mulrey, @chenka55, @mysteriousdays, @alwaysU2, @TheeEdge, @marqueeO and the adorable @U2kouklitsa. See you Friday!
