Comments: U2’s only California show of the tour is filmed for DVD and streamed live online. It’s the first time a major artist has offered a full concert for free on YouTube, and the live stream is nearly flawless. Beautiful Day includes short bits of In God’s Country, God Only Knows, and The Maker. One includes the ‘Hear us coming’ coda. In Moment of Surrender, Bono raps similarly to how he did during Saturday Night Live (Sept. 26). Dozens of stars are at the show, including Stewart Copeland (The Police), Dave Stewart, Pierce Brosnan, Paris Hilton, Demi Moore, Alyssa Milano, and others. It’s the largest concert crowd ever at the Rose Bowl.
