+ Even Better Than The Real Thing, does he say: viva Bono? I love it!
+ All the Discotheque snippets, the more, the better!
+ With Or Without You, awesome, great interaction with the crowd
+ Ending of Mysterious Ways, they keep on rolling
+ One, little a-capella piece there? Sounds chilling.

"I met a girl in the supermarkt, she says, I want your soul, to get your shoes (?)"


First of all, the recording which is not my favorite. It sounds very distant, and you can't really hear the thousands of people in the crowd. Which is a shame, this is not a bootleg that can represent such a historic show.
Recording: Audience microphone - 3.5 stars


Crowd, from what I could hear (not much) was decent, I love the crowd after All I Want Is You. They kept on going with "a hee ooh ooh".
