Performance notes: Out Of Control is performed for the first time in over eleven years. 11 O'clock Tick Tock makes its Elevation Tour debut after appearing at a couple of small pre-tour promotional gigs (even though Bono claimed that they hadn't played it in 20 years), and gets off to a false start when Edge has guitar problems and has to get a new guitar from his technician before the song can proceed. Interestingly, the last time these two songs were played at a full tour concert (10 January 1990, Rotterdam), they were also played consecutively. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

A lot of screw ups here from both Edge and Bono. Slightly higher than average I'd say. I don't know what they were thinking playing Mysterious Ways immediately after Streets. It doesn't work and it takes a while for the crowd to come out of their confusion and really get into the song, which is always a crowd pleaser from the first note otherwise. Still a pretty good show though. Really like seeing 11 O'Clock and OOC.

This is an original AUD/ALD/ALD mix from the following sources:
ALD1: (main ALD source)
Taper: ?? This is the "rarer" ALD from this night, called flawless by some (it's not though).
ALD2: (used to correct flaWS IN ald1)
Taper: Louis Choi
Equipment: Sony MZ-R700 > ALD
Discs follow the track listing of the original AUD source, because I love Keith's covers for the Elevation tour at keith.hispeed.com/u2/atyclb/liners.htm.
Following on the heels of my 04-28 mix, I decided to do another mix. I learned a few things from the first mix, mainly around how to improve sound, how to create a warmer mix, and this effort is an excellent result. It's probably my last mix though, so don't expect a trilogy ;-)
Leave it behind, Birdman

^These are the best tracks that I could extract from my terrible ALD recording of 5/16.
They are very heavily edited for hiss and sound dropouts.
Overall, the 5/15 recording contained various amounts of hiss throughout, especially
in the quiet parts in between songs and when Bono spoke to the audience.
Cool Edit 2000 was used to limit the amount of hiss.

Taped from the back corner (first level) of the arena. Fades added to

"They hated that song. I spent a month on it and I still don't think it was as realised as it could've been. The Americans had heard it and said, 'That's your radio song there,' because they were having trouble with some of the more industrial elements. It's almost like a covers band doing a U2 moment. Maybe we tried too hard."
- Steve Lillywhite on Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, Q 2002

The song 'Bullet The Blue Sky' is musically supposed to represent the bombings of El Salvadorian towns by US planes during its civil war.
