Tulsa: U2 heads out on the road again leaving behind Joshua Tree as the past breaks free from the future. Bono, The Edge, Adam, and Larry opened the BOK Center in Tulsa Oklahoma with a few surprises. Bono was not as outspoken as we have come to know if fact some might say he approached the stage with a rage that was ready to burst.
The show was filled with images to spark the mind to think about how mankind has been treated. Going all the way back to 1984, Pride defined the evening, on the screen images of Charlottesville, KKK, and White Nationalists The U2 message was clear HATE is WRONG, Love Is BETTER. The screens filled with messages of Equality, #METOO, empower women.
The core U2 fans remember MacPhisto who made his appearance last night on the big screen, with a speech on the nature of evil and rolling into Acrobat. Bono singing: “If you just close your eyes/You can feel the enemy."
Quickly we move on to You're The Best Thing with was a very scaled back acoustic set, driving us right into Pride.
The Experience "Get Out Of Own Way" leads us into "American Soul" and the set-closing out with "City of Blinding Lights"
The venue was packed to 19,000 (estimate) Ending the evening with "There is A Light" which as the emotions flood over the crowd it was clear that U2 came to give you an experience that brings you forward.
As Bono walked down the stage and within seconds he was gone.
