February 21, 1998. Melbourne, Australia. Waverley Park.
Good to very good to audience.
The instruments are very clear, meaning you can easily distinguish one from
the other (unlike some really "muddy" bootlegs out there) although there is
a little lack of midrange. The cymbals aren't exactly super crisp (I'm
talking bootleg standards here) but are very listenable. The vocals are
ever-so-slightly a bit low side but maybe that's how the acoustics of the
stadium were that night. The sound is a bit on the flat and artificial side
as there seems to be a lack of the audience and stadium atmosphere. Crowd
noise seems to be like random clapping instead of a real stadium audience
thus making it "artificial." Overall, this boot is among the upper echelon
of PopMart audience boots and is recommended. What sets this boot apart from
the other audience PopMart bootlegs is the PopMart version of "Bad," with
snippets of "Never Tear Us Apart," "Walk On The Wild Side" and "All I Want
Is You." During "Discotheque," Bono sang snippets of the Bee Gees' "Stayin'
Alive." This was the second Australian PopMart show. This came from an
audience DAT recording. The front cover is taken from a mini-poster sold
with the Australian 'Mofo' remix single CD. The back cover has pictures of
Bono, Adam, and the arch behind a tracklisting. The inside covers feature
scans of a newspaper review of the concert, a newspaper advertisement for
the show, a concert ticket and a "working personnel" ID pass. Some audience
noise is prominent between songs, but does not distract from the music.
"Sunday Bloody Sunday" is the acoustic version sung by The Edge.

"I absolutely had my doubts about it before we did it, and after, but it was the right thing to do. It was an opportunity that will only ever come around once for anybody. I don’t think anyone would want to do it again."

The 1984-10-27 show in Brussels was so loud that a local seismological institute registered it as an eartquake.
