The band are on top form. Bono's voice seems to be a little weak, which is unuasual for the start of a tour, although it may be that he hadn't quite found his pitch yet. Any way, they are bloody good.
Audience can be heard without. Fabulous atmosphere comes trhough.
Not sure why this isn't a 5-star?!? Wonderful mix of the band and the audience. As close to perfect as you're going to get.
A great addition to any bootleg colection. Early Elevation show when the band are just 'applying for the job of best band in the world'. And they deliver.
Definite highlights of Seetest Thing - great to here Bono having fun; The Fly - magnificent intro, and the Elevation version is my favourite of The Fly, and Bad.
Some songs, the band hasn't quite fallen into yet, which is actually sort of better...it makes them sound more interesting and fresh. But still, there are flaws here and there, even though they DO sort of add to the freshness of the set
Pretty easy to hear, never really intrusive, and they participate at all the appropriate times. Great mix of band and audience
Really phenomenal sound. This recording captures all members at the perfect EQ for me...the mix is just astounding.
Pretty easy to rate; 4.5 all the way down. Easily one of the best 1st Leg shows. Download this instantly.
-Until the End of the World (seemed like it was a TAD faster, and that the band was trying to stay on top of it- gave the song power, almost like it was controlling them, and in this case, it was really, really cool)
-The Sweetest Thing
-"Young Americans" during Bullet (always loved this)
-Where the Streets Have No Name
-Not bad enough to be a "lowlight", but they're clearly still getting used to their new take on "The Fly"
-Edge had a few errors on Mysterious Ways, I've heard better performances
