May 22, 2015 – Phoenix, Arizona, USA – US Airways Center

When we saw the photos and videos today – from Bono meeting fans on the lineup to Larry’s fun soundcheck video in the early evening – we knew U2’s first night in Phoenix would be something special, and it definitely was. Unlike the first night in San Jose (yikes), there was some high energy and heart in this one. Highlights: There was a boy on stage again tonight, this time much earlier in the show than in San Jose, and rather than pulling a single female fan up, it was three sisters who danced and by all accounts it was adorable. But the big moment of the night was…of course…In God’s Country, which Bono hinted at earlier today. There was a fan onstage to help out with that too, and Bono asked him to “take it slow” on the guitar. This was followed up by The Sweetest Thing, which pretty much put the cherry on top and as far as I’m concerned, they could have ended the show right there (although apparently Bono missed a piano chord – as if that matters!). The rest was pretty expected, but everything up to that point was spectacular. Here’s the…
