Performance

Great performance. The ZooTV opening is great, but it seems like the band really hit their stride once they get to the newer material. Bono plays with the lyrics in several songs, most notably I Will Follow, where he has a long musical ramble about the city and never trusting rock stars. Bono fumbles a bit in Even Better. The outro to One into the Wake Up Dead Man snippet is excellent, as is the transition from Until the End of the World to New Year’s Day. Kite is properly emotional. Sweetest Thing is surprisingly good here. All I Want Is You builds quite excitingly and that transition into Streets with the Psalm 116 snippet is beautiful. With Or Without You has Shine Like Stars, a little extra ad-libbing, and lovely guitar work from Edge. Overall the encore is pretty good.

Sound

No complaints. The audience could be louder in places, perhaps.
Recording: "Vibrations (IEM-AUD Matrix)" - 5 stars

Audience

Good crowd, lots of cheering, but not absolutely superb.

Overall

Great sound, excellent setlist. The songs are all strong, though some shine more than others. Bono is funny and plays with lyrics, though his voice isn’t great. Overall, a solid Elevation show - playful, intimate, crisp.

Highlights:
- Mysterious Ways
- Kite
- New York
- I Will Follow (one of the best)
- Sunday Bloody Sunday
