U2 wrapped up its extended stay in Los Angeles on Wednesday night with a sold-out show at the Forum, the band’s fifth at the Inglewood arena before its Innocence and Experience tour heads east, to Denver and beyond.
Wednesday’s concert was actually the last of six in L.A., including U2’s visit last week to the comparatively minuscule Roxy. But sustained exposure to his fans’ adoration has never satisfied Bono’s appetite for more, of course. So Wednesday the frontman sauntered onstage with the Forum’s house lights still on, the better to see 17,000-something Angelenos cheer his arrival once more.
“The most beautiful sound in the world,” he said. “It’s you!”
