Full show-part two:

Comments: U2 play the first of three sold out nights in Anaheim.

Bono mentions the Hollywood Remix of "Desire" during the song, not only referencing nearby Hollwood, but also in an effort to get the crowd to clap along.

During "Pride," a fan throws a bouquet of flowers on stage, resulting in Bono picking it up, opening the bouquet and then throwing the flowers, one by one, back into the crowd.
