Early Popmart show. Starting to pull things together, but still some mess-ups during the show. Staring at the Sun takes a while to come together, Bono turns into a major asshole during Miami, and the band forgets how to end With or Without You. I get the feeling they couldn't wait to end the show by the end. Nice little soundcheck bonus, with some full songs and warm-ups.
Soundcheck was a pretty solid standard Edge feed. Did the usual basic eq/reverb/etc. No static cleanup needed. The show had a decent amount of static and rf noise, especially in the second half of the show. The most interesting version of with or Without You I've heard was unfortunately striken with a good amount of static. Did the best I could to clean it up, but you'll probably notice some glitches. The feed is from the crew feed, so you'll notice crew talk and instruments/vocals switching in the feed.
This recording was stolen way back in the day in the infamous shower heist, and slowly was traded out from there. A while back it (and later the soundcheck) was torrented, but it ran slow and sounded bad. I'm unsure if it was intentionally traded with the speed/sound issues to preserve its "trade value" (as was done by these lovely thieving traders by some of the European Pop IEMs), or if the source was just a multi-gen analog tape. In either case, this is from a much better source and cleaned up. Enjoy y'all.
Please don't sell this recording in any way - no cash for blanks, 2:1s, or any other form of "getting paid for your time". Just share it freely.
Please do not attempt to remaster/remix this recording and spread it around. There is little to no point of trying to compete with the original processing. It just creates problems with conflicting effects and processing errors. If you need to re-eq it for your own listening pleasure, that's fine, just don't spread it around.
This recording was transferred from a first generation DAT to CDR. It was later converted to MP3 192 kbps. Sound quality is very good, and the only reason this is not graded as "excellent audience" is a slight lack of crispness. Audience noise is minimal.

"We are family. Bono and I bought a house together ten years ago in the south of France and Adam and Larry ended up buying in the same area, partly a practical thing, so we can work, but partly because we want to hang out together. I go to parties with these guys, and I end up sitting in the corner talking to them. It's weird. It's actually weird. It's the weirdest thing. I have other best friends too - I'm not saying they're my only friends, but they are my best friends."
