Comments: First performance of Party Girl in eight years and three days. Last performance of Even Better Than The Real Thing until 30 March 2011. When Bono is snippeting Van Morrison's Gloria at the end of Desire, he inserts some other lyrics that one may initially assume to be U2's Gloria, due to some similarities: "Oh Lord, open my lips/Anything I can, I will do for you/And my mouth shall shout up your praise". However, although the last line does not resemble any in Gloria, the lines do bear a strong similarity to Psalm 51 from the Bible. As the connection to Psalm 51 appears stronger, the snippet is credited to it rather than Gloria. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

- Digital mastering and remastering/editing by: Michael Albuquerque
- Remastering/editing Notes:
Due to a possible short in the taper's mic cables, there were small, periodic gaps of silence at the beginning and end of each of the 3 master minidiscs (caused by moving the MD recorder before and after disc insertion). Edits were performed using Soundforge 5.0 in the following locations:
(1) used fade in during intro on disc 1 to merely eliminate these gaps (as well as most of the PA song "Sgt. Pepper's",
(2) used a loop-type effect near the end of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" to mask a 1 second drop out during a vocal part and faded out the audience after the end of the song,
(3) used a loop-type effect again extensively for the intro of "Desire" which had most of the opening chords missing (thank God for the repetitive chord progression),
(4) used another loop-type effect to mask a ~ 1 second drop out near the end of Beautiful Day, and
(5) eliminated gaps in the crowd noise before the encores.
Enhanced bass and treble, normalized volume levels, and manually reduced volume levels in millisecond increments as necessary to eliminate clipping (i.e., from occasional loud hand claps nearby). Used fade in and out at beginning and end of each CD.
- Band Introductions were not recorded due to changing of the minidiscs.
- Recording Quality: 9.5 out of 10 (One of the best audience recordings ever, especially disc 2!)
- Band Performance: 10 out of 10 (Last night in Boston, U2's home away from home.)

"I'd love to be able to say it was symbolic, but the truth is we needed a stadium that didn't have a football team, so we could use it for three weeks. Also, Las Vegas is a good place to work - the local crews are very experienced in setting up live shows"
- Paul McGuinness on selecting Las Vegas as opening city for Popmart, 1997
