Performance notes: One is dedicated to Michael Hutchence of INXS who had died a few days previously. INXS's Never Tear Us Apart is snippeted by Bono in the main set, then the song itself is played over the PA as the house lights come up at the end of the concert. First performance of 40 since 10 January 1990. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

My first ever U2 show review! YAY!! *coughs* Anyway, this was clearly an emotional show since late INXIS singer and close friend to Bono Michael Hutchence died a few days prior to this show. And considering Bono's tight friendship with him, he was clearly emotional. As wad the band, since they all play here in top, peak form, their performance only boosted with the knowledge of Michael's passing. A bit of mess-ups here and there (at the end of Mofo) but it's to be expected.
You can hear the band play but without raising your volume levels it's a bit hard to hear, especially since the quality of this show, while not bad, is a bit... Fuzzy. Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
The audience reaction is good but seemingly quiet. But good.
Apart for the fuzzy sound, it's still a great show. It was especially touching before the beginning of "One" that Bono say a few words from him in tribute and I think you hear two audience members say "we'll miss you Michael". I also thought Bono singing "MLK" was very moving.

"I had a character in mind, who was just little half-cocked, a kind of uber-Bono. My favourite scene, which was done spontaneously, was getting on the luggage rack and being taken through that black hole where the bags go. Everyone wants to go through the hole, don't they?"
