The guys were on Popmart-fire that night and you can hear this actually throughout every single song of the concert. Edge was in extraordinarily superb playing mood and Bono both a true entertainer (eg "Even Better...", "Last Night On Earth" or "Hold Me Thrill Me...") and humbled guy who isn't afraid of showing his feelings ("Still Haven't Found" or "One").


Clear, gapless, great balance. What more could you ask for ?
Recording: DVB-T Television Broadcast - 5 stars


The audience was VERY into it and showed their enthusiasm and love at various times, best notable during "Desire", "Pride", "Still Haven't Found..." and "Mysterious Ways".


No lows, just highs really!
This was one of the first bootlegs I listened to and is since then my fave one because it really started my fandom and can be seen (actually both heard and watched!) as a perfect example of how great a U2 concert is.

Although it's hard to, some of my personal stand out songs here are
"Mofo" as it is the best live version of the song ever (imo)! I love especially Bono's greatly flowing singing and the little improvs he does here, too.

"I Will Follow" is a top notch performance as well. When I first heard this live version of I Will Follow, I was really blown away by the distinct difference from the 'normal' version. Simply Popmart-style.

"Pride" because of the passion the audience brings. When you watch the DVD you can see how impressed Bono is because he purposely stops starting singing the 3rd verse.

"Still Haven't Found" because if the audience (again), Bono's emotional talk and the powerful and emotional live rendition itself.

"All I Want Is You" because of the "Never Tear Us Apart" snippet. I remember clearly that the first time I listened to this I wasn't aware of Bono sometimes singing snippets from other songs, and when I suddenly heard him singing the lines from this INXS song I was close to tears for its power and meaning.

"Desire" ... priceless: Bono forgetting lyrics and trying to save his ass with "La Bamba" ....so to speak.

"Sunday Bloody Sunday" has Edge singing it solo, only armed with his acoustic guitar. Awesome!

"Bullet The Blue Sky" from this concert is my fave Popmart rendition. Awesome guitar by the Edge!

"Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me" as it is pure, mean rock by U2 . Great lyrics, great live.

"Mysterious Ways" for Edge's funky play/moves and Bono's singing at the end.

And "One" rather obviously for the Michael Hutchence reference and emotional performance.
