Performance

A quite interesting performance on the 1st leg of the North American leg of the Popmart tour with everyone mostly putting in a nice performance although, with a couple of rough or weird moments during songs such as Last Night On Earth being a bit weak at the start and Edge messing up during his guitar solo on Until The End Of The World, plus it was also nice to hear Larry doing something interesting with the drumming on Mofo which, was pretty cool so, despite minor mistakes such as these so, overall an acceptable first leg performance which I enjoyed.

Sound

Good sounding Popmart boot with good quality and atmosphere picked up.
Recording: "Original recording - J. B.-Sony Tcd D8 + Core Sound Cardioids " - 4 stars

Audience

Great crowd that is featured nicely in the recording which truly makes them shine during moments where you expect to hear them such as Edge's Karaoke spot and the Stand By Me snippet of Still Haven't Found.

Overall

A decent performance on the first leg of the tour and despite a couple of odd mess-ups during the performance in spots I will say that this performance was a nice one to hear as they are really starting to get into the swing of things by this point on the tour and offer the audience a performance which they seemed to like so, despite not being as good as the stuff you'd hear and see on the European leg of the tour which, is a lot higher in standards than this leg of the tour.
