Performance notes: Live debut of Babyface. MacPhisto's call after Desire is to the author Salman Rushdie, who had been in hiding since January 1989 after Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwah on Rushdie due to Rushdie's novel The Satanic Verses. It turns out Rushdie is actually in the venue and he comes on stage and hugs Bono. It is his first public appearance in nearly five years and it receives worldwide media attention. A few years later, U2 recorded a song written by Rushdie entitled The Ground Beneath Her Feet and it appears on some editions of All That You Can't Leave Behind.

Performance

Overall a quite fantastic performance by the entire band but there are a few minor sloppy moments musically and even more so from Bono, both from forgetting lyrics and having his voice crack due to fatigue and sometimes being weirdly daring in note and sustain choices (looking at you, 'Bad').

Sound

The sound quality is fantastic but unfortunately, probably due to being an outdoor recording, the acoustics aren't ideal. While certain instruments are very clear and high in the mix, Bono becomes almost inaudible at some parts due to being so low in the mix.
Recording: Audience microphone - 4.5 stars

Audience

Absolutely tremendous crowd as they're participating in every way imaginable, even reacting to the crew confessions and even more enthusiastically at the appearance of Salman Rushdie during the encores. An audience that any performer could only pray for!

Overall

Although I was super knackered while listening to the show, I enjoyed it quite a lot. The Zooropa songs were great additions and it was really a blast listening to the band playing their asses off and Bono having a blast on stage.

Highlights: Mysterious Ways, Until the End of the World, Numb, Bullet the Blue Sky, Ultra Violet and Love Is Blindness
