Performance

The band were warming up for the tour proper and to me it showed. No songs were nailed with any great precision. Bono fumbles through most of the songs and Edge is still learning how to play some tunes.

I suppose a pre-tour is when you start experimenting with setlists and there's no harm in that. But I'm glad they didn't stick with this order. Until The End Of The World was an interesting intro but didn't quite cut it. The boys still learning most of the new songs it seemed although I felt Beautiful Day was passable. Discotheque for me was probably the high point. The lack of a decent encore (40 only - WTF?) let it down badly too.


Sound

Disappointing. Clearly not 3 stars. The audience noises were far too overbearing, particularly the "Screecher" and others yelling and singing near the taper including the tone deaf dude. It was obviously a small gig which clearly worked against the taper. On top of that, the band was just way too muffled and distant. You could hardly hear Bono at times, Edge may as well have had his guitar up his arse and Adam was close to mute.
Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars

Audience

The best part of the boot. These people were clearly die-hard fans or at least most of them. They showed their appreciation and knowledge of the new material from the get go. They sung through all the ATYCLB tracks, yes even Ground Between Her Feet.

Overall

A pretty forgettable bootleg. Bypass this one and try gigs from the actual tour. The band were too raw and the sound is way too insufficient to waste too much time on this one.

Highlights:

Discotheque

11 O'Clock Tick Tock - it worked reasonably well so no idea why it was only played a few times on tour.
