I scored GA tickets for the first night of U2 in San Jose figuring the usual sound configuration. Unfortunately U2 likes to run around so they build a new stage and sound configuration. The stacks are mounted on the ceiling pointed towards the sides. This meant pointing the mics straight up underneath one of the stacks which is far from ideal. Seems best taping seats are front row upper deck. The result of this wacky configuration is a muddy echoey sound. The one upside of this was the area I stood was basically empty except for people going past me likes the tides as Bono or the rest of the band played one end of the stage or the other. This means minimal close crowd noise. The other issue was trying to stanf looking straight forward without looking too obvious staring straight at a security guard with lots of security walking past. I was not expecting a good recording but pleasantly surprised with the listen on my drive home. Sound nothing like my Joshua Tree recordings but will more than suffice as a reproduction of the show and the sound. The show was a good mix of old and new and the band was having fun. They seem well rehearsed and ready for a solid tour. Nice tribute to BB King. Looking forward to night 2 where I have hopefully better taping seats. .
