1998-02-11 - Santiago, Chile - Estadio Nacional


Comments: U2's first concert in Chile. Mothers Of The Disappeared was not performed again until the band returned to Chile on 26 February 2006.

U2's tour itinerary as distributed to their crew indicated there would be a second Santiago show at this venue the previous night, 1998-02-10. This second concert never actually happened.

Excellent performance. Possibly the best Popmart bootleg I've ever heard. Best moment is Bad, which is sublime. Another great moment is Mothers of the Disappeared and when the mothers come on stage and speak. It is a monumental moment.


If it wasn't remastered, then I don't think I would be giving this a 5-star. It sounds brilliant, especially on a sound system.
Recording: "Live In Santiago 1998" - 4.5 stars


South American crowd = can't beat them. I'm going to use alliteration here = absoutely amazing audience.


5-star performance. Definately a contender for the best Popmart show. Santiago has so many great moments and performances. There were no lows.

The highlights were:- Mofo, I Will Follow, Bad, Even Better Than The Real Thing, Please, If You Wear That Velvet Dress, With or Without You, One and Mothers of the Disappeared.
