    Sea 2 then Krakow..  Sea 2 gets my vote for the length of the show (3.5), the fantastic guests, introduction of Missing (which astounded the crowd), and an outrageously good main set.

    "Watch out for music. It should come with a health warning. It can be dangerous. It can make you feel so alive, so connected to the people around you, and connected to what you really are inside. And it can make you think that the world should, and could, be a much better place. And just occasionally, it can make you very, very happy." -Peter Gabriel

    It difficult to be objective, when you compare a personal experience to shows where you only read the setlist and maybe saw a few clips..

    That being said, I'll just state that Krakow was a truly special night..!

    I second this. I don't know if Seattle 2 can be topped.

    And Krakow -- again, stunning setlist, and the city itself is so, so beautiful. That was a special show.

    Edit to add: I've been to Prague, Krakow, Berlin, and Seattle 1&2 this year, going to Fenway shows too.

    This ^ London 2 for me purely because it was the one I was at and my first and only in the whole 22 years of being a fan.

    Wow that list of gigs  is very impressive and your comments hold more weight than those of a non-attendee imho.  We were only at Seattle 2 and thought it was FANTASTIC. Would have loved to get Wash or Hard to Imagine as we heard Oceans in Vancouver 2013 but this is just hair splitting. After Footsteps(perfect as it was so early in the set list) it was pretty much cake for me and 35 more songs is a lot of cake).I have to remind myself to enjoy what this band decides is right for that evening and that we should be extremely greatful that there is such an incredibly deep catalogue of material that I would love to hear every show.

    I haven't heard most of them yet, went to 3 and enjoyed them all.
    Have a feeling Seattle 2 is gonna be right up there after getting to listen to all of the boots, but I hope everyone enjoyed their show(s) as much as those of us there enjoyed that one.

    Yeah wrigley shows were interesting. I was only at 1 but 2 has the better setlist.  It sounds from what I read and the periscope last night that the band played/sounded better night 1 but the setlist was better night 2?
    I'm like an opening band for your mom.

    I was at both and I’d say the band played better overall N1 but there was something about N2 that made it special. The way they came out on fire after the rain was incredible. The band and crowd were both fired up. Eddie was on a mission. Setlist wise...both were pretty damn good imo. Both great shows.
