Performance

Really good on the main set. The 1st encore was great too, especially With or Without You. But when it got to the 2nd encore, it got real bad. There was a problem at the start of Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me then another problem at the end of Mysterious Ways. It sounded like on the second encore that Bono couldn't be bothered anymore. He had some weird quotes throughout the show - "Shine that fucking light at me"?

I was going to give it 4.5 stars but the 2nd encore annoyed me because of it's performance.


Sound

It was OK sound, enough to listen to the bootleg.
Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars

Audience

They were missing in this bootleg. They were slightly noticeable sometimes, like at the end of Pride with the "oh oh oh oh". At other points, you could hear them. But you just couldn't hear the audience at all. I suspect it was the recording that drowned the audience sound to a minimum level.

Overall

The performance was good in the main set & first encore. Second encore was extremely disappointing. The audience were sounding low because of the recording and the second was average.
