Performance

Another good performance by the band on the 1st leg of the Elevation tour and despite a few minor mistakes here and there that don't affect the overall performance that much so they are solid tonight, Bono's vocal shape is also fine and even though he has a few rough patches which, are mainly due to him trying falsetto in spots he holds up well so with these factors combined you get an acceptable show for this leg of the tour.

Sound

A pretty good matrix between the In-Ear Monitor and Audience recordings which, manages to capture the gig in clear quality while trying to also resolve the issues that the IEMs mainly bring which is the sound being "dry" by adding the audience recording to add more atmosphere and audience song to the audio.
Recording: "Vibrations (IEM-AUD Matrix)" - 5 stars

Audience

Another 4.0 crowd in my opinion.

Overall

The final night in Chicago for the 1st leg of the tour and the band does try to give this final night their all, this is done by changing the setlist to include things such as a Zoo TV tour throwback after Elevation which, is pretty unexpected and probably took the entire audience by surprise and also debuting I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking for here in an acoustic form. This combined with the fact that the band are in good shape easily makes this performance a must-listen leg 1 show in my opinion as due to the setlist alone, it makes an interesting listen.
