Performance

A mostly fantastic performance from the band in the early stages of the European leg of the tour. Everyone is mostly in good form from the show's start until the 2nd encore, where things get a bit sloppy, and mistakes start to make themselves known, such as technical issues and lyric flubs. However, aside from that, this is an excellent performance from everyone, with Bono's voice also being in good shape for the tour.

Sound

Minus the drop-outs that happen here and there, this is a very clear recording that highlights the music being played on stage pretty well for the most part. However, there are moments where the vocals and guitars do seem to drown the rest of the music out along with the audience atmosphere not really being present throughout.
Recording: IEM - 3.5 stars

Audience

They're probably enjoying this show a lot. However, thanks to the recording, I could only hear them during moments like the end of Pride, which doesn't allow me to judge them at all fully.

Overall

A mostly fantastic Popmart performance from the early stages of the European leg, with this being the 3rd show on the leg featuring strong performances both vocally and musically for the most part. However, as mentioned in the band performance tab, this isn't perfect, as the 2nd encore part of the show did let the show down a bit. Although, for the most part, you have a top show featuring great performances of songs. The first five songs, Miami, Bullet The Blue Sky and Discotheque all all worth looking out for with the final song also featuring the band going into a short cover of Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love at the end.
