A truly inspired performance from the 3rd leg of the Popmart tour from everyone, with fantastic performances being delivered throughout the show, with the only flaws in this performance being minor mistakes that didn't even affect the performance. Bono is in very good vocal shape for the tour and delivers a passionate performance from start to finish, throwing in snippets of INXS songs throughout due to the unfortunate passing of Michael Hutchence the day before. While he does get slighter weaker by the 2nd encores of the show, he still sounds pretty good.


The soundboard recording captures the show exceptionally well, with the music on stage being the top priority.
Recording: Soundboard - 4.5 stars


They seemed to be enjoying the show from what I could hear on the soundboard recording, although if I wanted to hear how they were, I'd probably listen to the audience recording to get a more accurate opinion.


A fantastic Popmart performance from the 3rd leg of the tour with great musical and emotional vocal performances from Bono throughout, which overall makes this one of the best Popmart performances I have heard. It's a consistently strong show and features some incredible performances from the band, with this show's Staring At The Sun being the best version I have heard so far. It's definitely a must-listen if you want to listen to a phenomenal performance from this leg of the tour.
