Performance

Pretty good. Band was really into it, after all this is a Zooropa show, and they made a good performance all throughout the show. Special mentions for Bullet The Blue Sky (dunno why, but every single version of Bullet they played on the 1993 summer -Sarajevo wars, you know- were specially strong, had some special energy that made them special), Desire and Ultraviolet. Also the setlist worked very very well, although they could have rehearsed the new songs a bit more (Babyface was ¬¬).

Sound

"(As said by Jeremy) Bono sounds like he's singing from Dublin while the band is playing in Cardiff."

Jeremy's words are a fantastic summary of the sound quality of the show. It sounds off, muffled and very very annoying sometimes (Numb, Stay, Running and Pride were painful to hear lol). Not good at all, specially considering all the great audience recordings we have from that era/year/leg/month...

Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars

Audience

They were really enthusiastic, as always on Cardiff. Good crowd. Nothing else.

Overall

A good show if you are a completist, or if you wanna have a nice Zooropa setlist and an enthusiastic crowd. If you look for great performances or great sound, better go for Verona, London or Dublin...
