U2 always bring impressive stages on their tour and this one was no different.  Joshua Tree is one of their best albums and hearing them play the whole thing was well worth the money.

While the Rogers Centre’s acoustics aren’t something to brag about, this concert had great visuals. Everyone received wristbands that light up so the whole arena was filled with colourful lights.
