"We feel at home," Bono told the crowd early into the first of two weekend shows at Pasadena's Rose Bowl, quickly amending that to make it clear he meant in L.A., U2's home away from Irish home. But before he clarified that, you might've momentarily leaped to the conclusion he meant the stadium setting itself, since the band slummed its way through mere arenas its last time around before settling on more massive gigs this time around as, well, a sort of homecoming.

The thing that's bringing them to the dance this summer is the same thing that introduced them to stadiums in 1987: "The Joshua Tree," one of the great rock albums of all time by many critical and popular measures. Playing a 30-year-old LP from start to finish may seem like a sop to conventional nostalgia for a group that's been reluctant to give in too readily to laurels-resting, at least musically. Maybe they sensed it was their last chance to reach nightly concert audiences this vast; maybe they're doing something this crowd-pleasing as a make-good for that whole iTunes kerfuffle. Whatever the rationale, U2 has actually found ways to make a "Joshua Tree" reprise feel more like opening a newspaper --albeit a print one -- than an old high school yearbook.

A clearly anti-Donald Trump message and long queues for some fans were among the talking points after the opening show in U2's tour, celebrating the 30th Anniversary of The Joshua Tree.

The Joshua Tree tour got off to a powerful start in Vancouver, Canada on Friday night. But the show was not without its controversies.

There was the political dimension for a start, with Bono offering an anti-Donald Trump salvo to the Canadian audience - who clearly empathised.

Remarks:

Tonight in Dallas, U2 performed for the second time at AT&T Stadium (formerly known as Cowboys Stadium) - the first time was in 2009 on the 360° Tour. Bono once again paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester terror attack stating during the opening song Sunday Bloody Sunday: "For the streets of Manchester with heartache, we say no more!" The setlist is shifted slightly with "Bad" moved up to the third song of the night and "Ultra Violet" and "One" are moved to the first part of the encore. U2 decided not to perform "The Little Things That Give You Away" and instead played "I Will Follow" to close the show. Bono thanked former president George W. Bush and his wife Laura at the show for their continued fight against AIDS (Bono had visited Mr. Bush at his Crawford, TX ranch earlier in the day).
