Performance

It’s the last night of the tour and the band sound good, but tired out. It’s no secret at all that this was not the best era for Bono’s voice and you can tell he’s not at full power here, but it’s not a big drawback. Lots of songs are strong, but there are several lyrical fumbles as well. Larry and Adam really shine.

Opening run is decent, but the show really picks up at Last Night On Earth and stays strong through New Year’s Day. All I Want Is You, Sunday Bloody Sunday, and Bullet are great too. Bono makes a hash of the first verse of Please but the rest and the Streets transition is as always stellar. Discothèque is great with Bono repeatedly snippeting We Are Family. In Mysterious Ways, Bono introduces the band by the names of their techs. One is very good and “40” is played in a delicate style.


Sound

Sounds good to me, clear without too much fluctuation. Audience seemed a bit hidden.
Recording: "Human Rights Day - Last Night Of Popmart" - 5 stars

Audience

Good from what I could hear.

Overall

Good show but not stellar. There are some fumbles and the band are clearly a little tired out.

Highlights:
- Last Night On Earth
- Until the End of the World
- New Year’s Day
- I Still Haven’t Found
- All I Want Is You
- Sunday Bloody Sunday
- Discothèque
