Well, the 2nd night on the European tour and the band offer a nice performance just like the first, with these nights you can really see that the band are starting to have a lot more of a positive mood of performing on start as they seem to be getting a much warmer response from the audience during these shows which, makes them a lot more inspired when compared to the 1st North American leg shows so, yeah pretty good show from everyone tonight with not many mistakes and the band seeming to be enjoying being on stage.
Solid sounding AUD recording though, it could have been better in spots though, it does seem to improve as the show progresses so despite the flaws this recording is a pretty nice way to experience the 2nd show on the European leg. Recording: "I Will Swallow" - 4 stars
Again, Rotterdam audience who really seem to be having fun tonight by singing along and stuff like that so 4.5 stars.
Another great performance from the band on the newly started European leg of the Popmart tour with a lot more inspired performances when compared to the previous North American leg, they also seem to have copied the Zoo TV Zooropa leg idea of starting off in Rotterdam and the audiences from these shows help the band to deliver a lot more inspired and great performances on this tour and this show is a pretty good one with nice renditions of songs done throughout the show.

Firstly, I wasn't there. In 2014 a tapingbuddy of mine (who was at this show), handed me over a box with 300 DAT-tapes.
In between them were his own master, and another source being a clone from the master DAT.
About 6 months ago Hoserama hooked up with a IEM-source from this gig, after him remembering I had a couple of clean
transfers from this date. I got very excited about it, and took the challange to mix them up.
The OKMIIr-source speaks for itself. It's a widely spread recording in all kinds of lineageforms (incl. analog versions).
This one is a confirmed clone from the master, directly from the taper himself. It has virtually no crowdnoise and no
clappers, which for mixingpurposses isnt actually that great to get the live-feeling within the mix. On the the other hand,
the bass in this recording is heavy and full. So, I had to make choices.. oh well, like the result.
The IEM-source is incomplete, and missing the last four songs. It's a Edge-(crew)feed, with Edge's vocals pretty loud in
the mix. Guitar sounds are powerfull as well, so easy to bring them all up. Source had a fair amount of static, which for 90%
I was able to remove without any artifacts. Especially 'Until The End Of World' was marred, you probably can hear that.
Bono's vocals are swirling around a bit from time to time, and aren't as powerfull and upfront as Edge's ones.
I tried to get ridd off the click-track, but it's still there in some occasions. Moreover the AUD-source was taped closely
to the stage and you can hear the on-stage clicktrack as well. Besides, I couldnt find a better setting and not harming the
music any further.
I'm mixing recordings primairly for my own ears. I like to accomplish a sound were instruments and vocals are upfront during
songs, and aud-noise is more audible in between them. This isnt always easy, and sometimes hard choices are need to be made.
If you dont like these kind of results I get that, everybody has his own personal tastes. So criticism is welcome, complaining
wont get me anywhere.

This is from a 1st gen or master DAT, remastered by Francesco Donadel.
This was U2's second night in Rotterdam/Europe of the PopMart tour. It was a very good show, they seemed more loose than the second show, and put on a more interesting performance (IMO) than night one. Bono did "Love Will Tear Us Apart" at the end of WOWY. Nothing else about this show should surprise you other than the energy and vocal ability of Bono, which varied throughout the tour.
The sound quality of both nights was identical. Rather flat, but extremely clear, with individual audience members 97% inaudible. Probably the lowest/unobstructed audience noise recording you'll hear, but the mix is not that great, seems to be missing a lot of the high end, and the remastering helped a little, but it seems that he couldn't really bring out the high end because it just isn't there. Despite the audience noise, I prefer something like "One Stop Shopping" or the tracks you'll hear from the pro soundboard recording of the Rotterdam show. There is a little light static that is on Justin Cook's original copy.

"I can program stuff in live and not actually play the lines. Some people might regard that as an easy option? Well, I guess that depends on whether they're pre-post-modern or post-post-modern, doesn't it?"
