"Edge looked like Winnie the Witch, Adam looked like the Duchess of York, Larry looked like an extra from some skin flick and I looked like Barbara Bush." — Bono, describing the band's appearance in drag in the "One" video

Comments: U2 play their final USA show on the Joshua Tree Tour 2017, and it's a return to a stadium that has changed its name twice since they last played there: The band had previously visited the venue in its identity of Jack Murphy Stadium some 25 years ago on the Zoo TV Outside Broadcast Tour in 1992, and again on the PopMart Tour five years later in 1997. The stadium was renamed shortly after the PopMart show to  Qualcomm Stadium until just less than two weeks prior to this concert taking place when it was renamed SDCCU Stadium.

A bumper crowd wait until almost 9.45pm for the show to start, and it appears that the show may be a dress rehearsal for filming later in the tour, as there are lots of cameras filming at the show, and Anton Corbijn is seen at the show, and seems to be in some form of official capacity.

Following the standard main set (and which some of the Joshua Tree songs may be played for the last time in USA), the encore starts with "Miss Sarajevo" being played for the second time on this 3rd leg, and just a few songs later a very different acoustic arrangement, with a Latin American ambience, of "You're The Best Thing About Me" is dedicated to Ali Hewson by her husband, who informs the audience of her presence at the stadium. Bono references a new snippet for the first time at a U2 concert -- Twenty One Pilots' "Heathens" is sung during "Beautiful Day."
