The band sound really good. They’re already confident with their new songs. Very strong show overall.

Bono’s voice is smooth in Beautiful Day but he’s a bit raspier as it goes along. Elevation has nice snippets and a good outro. Stuck In a Moment is surprisingly strong here. Bono talks about how the punk scene in New York gave U2 their early inspiration and then provides a lovely I Remember You into New York. I Will Follow has some lyric changes and is very strong. Bono has a bit of fun introducing the band before one of better stripped-down versions of Desire. The acoustic version of The Ground Beneath Her Feet is nice but definitely lacks the power of the studio version, the transition to an excellent Mysterious Ways is quite lovely. One is strong even if Bono messes up by repeating “have you come here to play Jesus”; ending with the Walk On snippet is a stroke of brilliance. He fumbles again in All I Want Is You but makes up for it with a bit of improvisation. Bad is, as ever, a treat. While 11 O'clock has definitely had stronger performances it’s still nice and great to hear it again being sung by a more grown-up Bono; always a mystery to me why this song didn’t make a full comeback and become a regular again. Ending on a Who cover is an interesting choice; it’s quite nice.


Excellent quality.
Recording: Soundboard - 5 stars


Excellent crowd, they’re very excited. An audience/venue size like this suits U2 just as well as a big stadium.


A great show and with good sound too! I wish U2 would do more shows like this (though perhaps with even more songs...). If you haven’t heard this, you won’t be disappointed.
