I thought this was a very good performance, especially for being so early in the PopMart tour.
Staring at the Sun was very good, even with small false start, not yet played in the stripped-down acoustic way it would be later. If God Will Send His Angels and Do You Feel Loved are still in the set. Edge's karaoke was fun and really got the audience going. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For and Pride, which I ordinarily think are a bit flat and even (gasp) boring on the PopMart tour were very lively here, quite strong performances.
Not perfect sound, but one of the better-sounding PopMart boots I've listened to. Mofo is a bit rocky, and Where the Streets Have No Name seems quiet, as do a few other songs. Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
Very good audience, super-enthusiastic and loud, but not an overpowering presence.
Actually, giving it some thought, this might be my favourite PopMart show. The mistakes are either not there or not glaring, songs that would later be dropped are still in the setlist, and overall it was a very strong performance of new and difficult material.
-I Will Follow
-Do You Feel Loved (best performance? - definitely should not have been played dropped!)
-Last Night On Earth
-Until the End of the World/Break On Through (To the Other Side)
-Staring at the Sun (possibly the best performance, even with the false start)
My only (minor) complaints would be that Where the Streets Have No Name and Discothèque weren't as good as usual, and, much more pressingly, no If You Wear That Velvet Dress or Wake Up Dead Man. I was disappointed at their absence.
Seriously, an underrated show. A real gem from PopMart.

Found this DAT in the archive and was pleasantly surprised by the quality when I threw it on. Back in the day, JEMS experimented with mixing two source recordings from the same show, now commonly called matrixing. This DAT blends JEMS' Nak 700 master with our friend MH's Sonic Studios master, picking the best channel of each. Given the different decks, the sources eventually go out of sync but that can be corrected. You may hear an adjustment or two on here, the most notable one I heard was at the start of "Where the Streets Have No Name."
The reason we favored such mixes at the time is that they created a wide open soundstage and seemed additive when it came to strengthening the best qualities of both recordings.
From the research I did online, the widely disseminated source for this early PopMart show is the bootleg Popmart Shopping Eugene. I don't have a copy of that but based on the description I suspect it is an entirely different source, and presume this recording to be an upgrade.
We may have used the shotgun attachment on the Nak 700s; I will try to find out. MH was on the floor as I recall and the JEMS team (well, half of us anyway) were up on the side a section back from the stage.
I remember thinking this was a strange show, the highlight of which for me was "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me." It is probably better on tape in hindsight than it was in person.
Anyway, this seemed unusual enough to post here. Sample provided.

"I'd love to be able to say it was symbolic, but the truth is we needed a stadium that didn't have a football team, so we could use it for three weeks. Also, Las Vegas is a good place to work - the local crews are very experienced in setting up live shows"
- Paul McGuinness on selecting Las Vegas as opening city for Popmart, 1997
