Not that great. I mean, there weren't mistakes, Bono's voice was good, but the show didn't rock as other gigs from this leg (Rotterdam, Leeds and Sarajevo). They were playing for 150,000 people, it wasn't an ordinary gig, The sound isn't good as well.
Highlights: Last Night On Earth, New Year's Day, Miami (maybe the best version), One.
