OK, my first review, for the first concert i had ever been to, and what a 1st experience it was. i was about 3m away from the left b-stage, and the whole night was f-ing amazing, i made eye contact with the edge for a few seconds, people never believe me but i have the image burnt into my memory(doesnt really prove it though), lol. The band all seemed to be in good touch, lots of bono chatter which i liked, also some nice snippets.
COBL: nice performance, some annoyying lady singing (she ruins a few songs), i loved the ending,but which south aussies wouldnt? 7.5/10
Vertigo: no snippet at the end, WTF, thats always the best part of vertigo when he gets the crowd going ala u23d, doesnt happen here so only 7/10
Elevation: like the intro chatter, one of my favourtite versions of this song, but is ruined by poor quality and that bloody lady singing. 8.5/10
IWF: stock standard performance, 7.5/10
NYD: once again nice intro, bono talks about not performing in Adelaide for 8 years, IT WAS 13 years TO THE DAY, this supports the hypothesis of him not knowing where the hell he is 7.5/10
BD: Awesome performance with the Adelaide references, kicks arse, once again annyoing lady is singing and ruins it. 8/10
SIAMYCGOO: very well played, would be in top 3 performances of this song without a doubt, with improved audio possibly THE best, and if someone shot that annoying lady, nice tribute to Michael Hutchence. 9/10
Angel of Harlem: once again nice performance with Kylie snippet, bono possibly fuks up hes location once more, 7.5/10
SYCMIOYO: intro was good, great performance with audience singing whole way through 9/10
LAPOE: worst song on boot in terms of sound, larrys b-stage drums sound shit, and hard to hear edge's solo, 6.5/10
SBS: tribute to victims of Bali bombings was fitting, excellent performance, 9/10
BTBS: ur usual performance, 7.5/10
Miss Sarajevo: tribute for the aussie soldiers, nothing special which makes it stand out in my mind, 7.5/10
Streets: loved the intro, solid performance of this epic song, 8.5/10
One: the irish drunk stuffs up he's location for the 3rd time i think, really pisses me off now that i think about it, seeing AAMI (60,000) people with their phones out was mind blowing, again, image is burnt into memory bank. The performance was also very well played, nice ending 8/10
Zoo Station: great performance, 8/10
The Fly: Nice snippets and solo as always, 7.5/10
WOWY: NO snippets is complete BS, bono kinds sounds like hes just talking the 1st half of the song, but still a great performance. "cmon Adelaide, give us a kiss" gota love it. 8.5/10
Saints: Good performance of the #1 single in Australia at that time.
Desire: probably the highlight of the night, (or kite) unbelivably good, bono talks about the band starting off, and directs the song form there, loooved it. 10/10
Kite: all good things have to come to an end, as did this concert. A brilliant finish like most 5th leg shows, was very happy/sad for me i guess thats how ud describe it, waiting 8 months for it then realising it was all over. the night brought nothing but great memories.
Audience sang along with all songs, although they sometimes overpowered the band, espescially the 'annoying lady', but she has the right to sing as loud as she wants as does the rest of the audience, its the poor quality of the recording which ruins this boot imo.
Not the best by a long shot, i havent heard many audience recordings b4 so i cant compare but it takes alot of points away from the boot.
Probably being a little (or a lot) biast cause i was there, but still an amazing night, i loved it and will never forget it thanks to this boot, not as good as Sydney and melbourne only cause of the sound quality, but still a very respectable show from start to finish.
A respectable, no nonsense effort from the boys in what was smack-bang right in the middle of the Aussie-NZ tour. The boys seemed rejuvenated for the most part which was characteristic of this leg after a long lay-off. I felt the band weren't in great form. There were few stand-outs. Bono in particular committed a few lyrical faux pas's (in Angel "Snow is melting on the sound" ?) and the band really threw themselves at the start before putting in a rather lacklustre second half of the main set. But overall, I felt their performance was enough to at least warrant a pass mark.
I really have grown very tired of Elevation on tour but this was one of the best versions I've heard during Vertigo. It was really pumping as was I Will Follow. As I think I've said before in this forum, I've really grown to love Beautiful Day on this tour. It just sounded a lot more interesting than it did on Elevation with the great snippets - in this instance Sgt Peppers and Here Comes the Sun - and the looonnng "Touch me!".
Things picked up in a big way during what was for me the highlight of the show - a very impressive Stuck in a Moment followed by a fun-loving Angel of Harlem. This combo was just great. I'm not a massive fan of either song but they both hit the spot for me.
I felt that this show was on it's way to something out of the ordinary before the shit stain Sometimes came along and fucked everything up and kicked off what were in my opinion pretty average War and Human Rights sets. I suppose Streets wasn't bad and Bono's humour during Sunday with the kid was ok.
A solid encore with highlights Zoo Station, Desire and Kite redeemed the lads though.
They were there and made some noise.
It's a typical 3-star bootleg. Bono's the most clear and the other band members sound like they're performing in a stadium next door. What's more, you get this background fuzz like it's raining throughout the recording but most audible on the softer songs like Miss Sarajevo. It's not as good as Sydney or Melbourne but better than Brisbane.
I reckon the sound takes a way most of the points of this bootleg. It just sounds like its changed hands a few too many times so I'd love to get my hands on the source.
Definitely Stuck In A Moment and Angel early on
Kite was a great feature of the Aussie tour and didn't disappoint here.
....oh and Elevation too I guess.
Final word: Get Sydney and Melbourne before considering getting this one. But if you're an avid collector of good Stuck in a Moments you could do worse than this one.
A cold Thursday night, thirteen years to the last show. First, we get told to Wake Up and then we're into City of Blinding Lights in the City of Churches. Bono certainly makes sure everyone knows that they're in South Australia and Adelaide at the end of the song.
Vertigo is just Vertigo with some Irish speaking, but then you get to Elevation. It's such a fun little number here, with the Spinning Around snippet (one of several Kylie Minogue references throughout the show), with Bono trying not to laugh and the crowd having a laugh at it. The countdown from that song starts and then "Aaaahhhhhhh!!!" and being strung out-like-a-gee-tar.
We then get a hit from the Boy album with I Will Follow - love ya as Bono says if you listen carefully, and then introductions to the band in New Year's Day. A fantastic rendition of Beautiful Day follows next with several prominent Adelaide references. Not an overly long "touch me" note - there was another Australian show with a longer note, it may have been a Sydney show or the 19th Melbourne show.
Stuck In A Moment from the previous album is thrown out to the Adelaide 60 000+ strong crowd next, dedicated to the late Michael Hutchence, and the "good-humored" Angel of Harlem with the second Minogue reference of the night is up next, with several clever changes to the lyrics. We get a thanks from Bono to the crowd before Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own kicks off (how nice) and says that U2 have learnt something from this certain song, with the "reason I sing" note held tightly; I'd say he's holding that like his memories of his dad when he passed away on the last tour.
As with most shows, next is Love and Peace, followed by Sunday Bloody Sunday dedicated to the victims of the Bali bombings, with a funny moment between the young boy, Emerson, and being called fearless after asking whether he's afraid of Edge, Larry, Bono or Adam. Bullet The Blue Sky is next, followed by Miss Sarajevo, which if you listen to the operatic part, is a stunning note. Hard to believe that kind of note can be held, and at the end of the song asking "is this the time".
Another Pride follows, which holds the tradition of "another Pride", seguing into Streets, which the crowd goes ballistic for. For the first time on this entire tour, you get the feeling that the band actually enjoy playing the song, no matter if it's been on every tour since it was released.
One is next. There were several innaccuracies here; first was that we can "turn Telstra into a Christmas tree". This is AAMI Stadium, not Telstra Dome or Telstra Stadium. And that "it's Christmas". Clearly if Bono had bought a calculator and a calendar to Australia, he would have realised that there was over a month at the time to go. No matter; the performance was pretty slow and sounded like a rehearsal, with the out-of-tune audience singing along.
Time for an encore! Zoo Station rocked the house and so did The Fly, with Bono's old-time snippet of Singin' In The Rain, but it's dragged down again by With or Without You - if it had a Shine Like Stars snippet, it might have been something good, but alas, it was out the back having a smoke, or got lost on the plane. Three songs to end the night; The Saints Are Coming didn't disappoint the crowd. A fun, rockin' electric rendition of Rattle and Hum's Desire is next, with Bono telling the crowd that 30 years ago, U2 played its first gig!
And right on target, we have a fantastic Australian-style version of the epic Kite with Tim Morriaty on didgeridoo; it adds a real element to this song, and hopefully is played in future shows, no matter where. The band did Kite justice after six years.
"Thankyou Adelaide, don't forget about us".
Looks like the Adelaideans loved the show. They cheer for the popular songs and even at the ones not so well-known like Miss Sarajevo and The Saints Are Coming, which had only been played a handful of times since November. Plus I even got to hear some conversations.
The sound is on target for a decent audience recording. All instruments are audible and I didn't notice the fuzzy sound for some reason - I'm sure it's the same source. Anyway, it's a nice recording and you get to hear how big that crowd was. I think it was one of the biggest crowds in Adelaide for a long time.
A nice show if you're looking for a more laid-back 2006 Vertigo show.
Ok then, This review is going to be short and probably not so sweet. I can't really fault the performance of the band, It was a fairly laid back show, like the rest of the 5th leg shows, and both the band and the crowd seems to be into it on this night. Performance like Stuck in a Moment, Angel Of Harlem and Miss Sarajevo really stuck out, while the other performance did the job, not the best but far from the worst, well that was until the last 3 songs. The Saint are Coming was only matched in direness by Desire, and it was left with Kite to restore the shows previous charm.
I guess i better watch my mouth ;-). The Crowd were into it, and its always nice to hear people enjoying themselves with all the big sing-alongs
Hummm, Not sure I really enjoyed the sound of this bootleg, Perhaps a 3 star, but i've heard better. The Band were auble in all parts along with the crowd, who were prehaps to aubable, but hey, its and 'Audience' recording, what do you expect.
- Miss Sarajevo
- Angel Of Harlem
- Stuck In a Moment
- The Saints are Coming
The band seemed relaxed and enjoying themselves, and the snippets were excellent in their songs, but they really shouldn't play the Saints are Coming without Green Day, it just seems to lack without them. Kite sounded great though, I wish they'd played it more on the Vertigo tour. People can bitch about ATYCLB all they want, but that song is great, especially live, like here. Bullet and Bloody Sunday just sounded tired, they should give those two numbers a rest for a bit. Pride sounded good though, Elevation was just okay, and Desire had some nice little improv bit thing in it. (Does that make sense lol?)
Sure, it was a little annoying to put up with some of their crappy singing, but I did feel like I was there, and I like to hear the audience. Besides, I can't sing either.
It was okay, it didn't skip, and I could hear the band fine. But it wasn't the most amazing thing since chocolate or anything.
Just an okay boot, Kite is great, but not much else seems to stand out. I probably won't keep it on my iPod. I give it a 3 out 0f 5
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Bullet the Blue Sky
The Saints are Coming (Snooooooore)
I was a bit disappointed with this boot, to be honest. I count on 5th leg Vertigo shows for great, energetic performances with unique setlists. Decent performance overall from the boys here, but lacking a bit in energy, save for a few key performances of rare songs.
The first set seemed fairly typical, nothing special. COBL, Vertigo, and Elevation were quite punchy, I Will Follow was a nice surprise, but New Year's Day and Beautiful Day seemed to lack in energy a bit for me. The band redeem themselves with Stuck and AOH, though. I usually skip Stuck on any boot, acoustic or full electric, but this one I have to say was great. Combined with a really fun performance of AOH, these two songs were the highlight of the first set for me.
SYCMIOYO and LAPOE seemed a bit lackluster, but the crowd during Sunday Bloody Sunday lifted the energy right back up. Bono seemed to channel that energy into his stellar performance of Miss Sarajevo, one of the best performances I've heard. Close out with good performances of Pride, Streeets, and One, and the Australian crowd is loving it.
Great, rocking performance of Zoo Station, nicely followed by The Fly. WOWY seemed to break up the set for me, both in its odd place between The Fly and TSAC and its nothing-special performance. I usually enjoy TSAC, but this was a bit of a rocky performance. Desire was the opposite--great, rocking performance again. Kite for me was the highlight--wonderful choice for a closer, and while I still prefer the Melbourne version, this is a great performance, very heartfelt and leaves me--and the Aussies--wanting more.
At times annoying and detracting from my focus on the performance, but overall a good crowd.
Not great, but not horrible. The band seems really distant at times, particularly Edge, but I could still sit through it.
Wish I was more positive about it! Decent show overall, but to me, nothing entirely special, aside from the appearance of Kite. If you like Vertigo 5th leg (which you should) this a good boot to have.
Decent 5th leg. I like the relaxed style of it and the band are on good form after their enforced break. Solid.
Didn't quite do it for me - not a complete recording disaster to my taste, but nothing that outstanding either. We obviously couldn't hear the guys from our forum who were there!
Maybe a little harsh, but I just didn't like it at all. I suspect a fair rating for the site is 3 stars. But for personal taste it makes the difference between a boot I would have kept on my harddrive and one that will be shipped to the back-up drive.
A good listen if you're not fussy about the sound, but there are better equivalent gigs around. Nice to hear Desire though.
As with the other Vertigo 5th leg gigs, the show is full of fun and the band sound like they're enjoying themselves. I wouldn't say stunning, but way more than satisfactory. I can't be buggered to draw up a summary of everything I wrote, so I'm just gonna copy and paste my song-by-song notes;
Main set -
COBL - good opening, not a pinnacle performance (although probably detracted by the quality of the sound more than anything)
Vertigo - couldn't really hear Edge's guitar, but a solid effort.
Elevation - no long drawn-out intro., hallelujah!
IWF - never quite the same when Bono 'says' "I will follow" in the intro. as oppposed to a gutsy shout, but a lively performance, everyone clearly lapping it up. *
NYD - just doesn't work for me without a big buildup, i.e. UTEOTW or something. Bit flat. Gets going when Edge's guitar kicks in, but still a bit...missing something. The solo always sends a shiver down my spine though - that's how to make a Les Paul sing.
Beautiful Day - meh. Interesting when Bono moves up an octave during the opening verse. Still prefer Elevation versions, felt a lot more fresh. Also feel that with Elevation versions, they felt like the complete sum of their parts, whereas with Vertigo I get the feeling that it's like a lot of parts trying to complete a sum but not quite clicking. Am also not one of those who hold much stock with the idea that the additional snippets make the song tick in a live setting.
Stuck In A Moment... - full electric, can't go wrong. A lack of crooning from Bono in the intro. also helped.*
Angel of Harlem - jaunty, fun, again prefer the Elevation versions simply because Edge's guitar had a bit more oomph, but Bono certainly seems to thrive on an old classic.
SYCMIOYO - has never struck a chord with me live, never will - same old moan from me I'm afraid. One of those songs that will never outdo the original studio version bar a really impressive reworking in the future. Please don't keep this as a staple of the live set guys.
LAPOE - the sound doesn't lend itself to the performance. Crowd seem to get louder, the band quieter, and the drums sounded slightly off-kilter...
SBS - for once, actually seemed to lift the place. Great to hear the crowd go nuts when the intro. kicks in. Raucous guitar work from Edge, Larry's drums really carrying the song, Bono seeming to audibly take off. Still not a patch on previous tours, but certainly a decent effort - suffers from the Vertigo condition of dragging on far too long though.*
Miss Sarajevo - great song, great performance, need there be any more said?*
Pride - pretty upbeat performance, great vocals from Bono (for once), wish you could hear the whole crowd "ooh-oooooh-oh" a bit more though in the outro.
Streets - uplifting performance, fairly run-of-the-mill though.
One - lowkey, but builds-up as it always does to a rousing finish. Not standout, but a nice close to the set nonetheless.
Zoo Station - epic.*
The Fly - not bad, but a bit run-of-the-mill until the solo. And after.
WOWY - nice performance, Bono doesn't mince the vocals as with some other Vertigo performances, really opens up now and then. Even though I do mourn the loss of the ZooTV solo, you can't deny there's something intimate and yet equally epic about the PopMart+ versions.*
TSAC - decent performance. Not a massive fan, and things seemed to get a bit pearshaped near the end but it was certainly not the crowning turd in the waterpipe.
Desire - oh yes!*
Kite - lowkey ending, but magnificent for it. The only thing that makes Elevation performances better is Bono's rhythm guitar part, just adds a bit more to the song.*
Basically, anything with a * after it was notable in my opinion!
hoot the lot of them lol (or at least, the ones near the taper). For me, there's a fine line between a bearable crowd and an unbearable crowd, and in this case they fell on the wrong side - this is sheer pickiness on my part but no one was singing in tune lol, but on the other hand I would like to think that their enthusiasm was representative of the rest of the crowd, i.e. having a damn good time Adelaide-style!
Probably the biggest letdown - there's very little in the way of depth, and although it's not a case of the quality of sound being crap, e.g. the band being distorted, gremlins in the speakers etc., they sound very distant and it [the recording] doesn't do them justice by bringing the different parts together as a unified ensemble. Larry is probably the most prominent, whilst Edge is least (which, for me at least, is a bit disappointing) - Bono and Adam are distinct without taking over.
Decent gig, a 7/10 - not amazing, but exemplary of the 5th leg of the Vertigo tour. This is already on my mp3 player anyway, and there it shall certainly stay.
I liked this show...the band were legendary, just as any night on the 5th leg was. COBL and Vertigo start this one off rockin'. I must say...it was annoying how Elevation dragged on so unnecessarily. I Will Follow made up for that, always a great stadium rocker. New Year's Day...I know people love this song, but it's very much overplayed. U2 did a good job playin it that night. Beautiful Day was nice with the Sgt Peppers and Here Comes the Sun snippets at the end. Stuck in a Moment was a neat little surprise, as was Angel of Harlem, both played very well. The band blasted through SYCMIOYO, LAPOE, SBS, and BTBS. SBS was nice with the kid and the 'are you afraid of me' bit. Miss Sarajevo and Pride were good, but the lead into Streets just never happened on this tour. Streets was ok, as was One. Then the show took off for me with the encore. Zoo Station rocked, and the Fly kicked arse. WOWY seemed ok, and The Saints Are Coming was just the same. Desire was a fun little number with Not Fade Away at the end. The show closed with Kite, and what a closing it was!
Kinda quiet audience at some points, other than that, they were great! I'm thankful for audiences that are kinda like this because sometimes you can get one where everyone around the tape is just rude.
Really clear, which was awesome. While it seemed a bit distant, I thought it was a great recording!
I thought it was a good show...it had its moments with SBS , Zoo, Fly, and Kite. The sound was pretty good, and the audience was very respectful. Not one for the iPod, but it has a spot on my external disc.
Kite was the real highlight of the night...Elevation's little waiting period kinda took away the magic of the song.
