First off, what a show. The band were in a great mood, and it is present in the songs. 'Elevation' would be the first of many great performances of the night. 'Beautiful Day', 'Until the End of the World', and 'New Year's Day' were good, however Bono's voice was a bit raspy. However this would be the end of any problems. The rest of the show was amazing. I enjoyed 'Out of Control', and Bono's recollection of his going to London to present the demo. 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' was in great form as well. 'Stuck in a Moment' was above average here too. 'Kite' was dedicated to Bono's dad, and is an outstanding version. 'Angel of Harlem' was taken over by the audience, the real stars here. The guitar player of the Smashing Pumpkins played Bono's guitar on 'People Get Ready', which was a fun version. 'Staring' was good, and Bono's voice had improved since the start of the show. The best part of the show is right here. 'Bad' was out of this world. One of the best versions I've ever heard. The snippet of '40' and the lead into 'Streets' rivals Slane for this show. 'Streets' proved the band had ignited and IMO in top form. They should've played 'Pride' or 'Mysterious Ways' right after 'Streets' since the band were so great here. 'Still Haven't Found' was cool, but afterward the band cooled off, and 'Pride' was really good, but would have benefitted following the amazing version of 'Streets'. 'Bullet' was great. Really great. 'What's Going On' through 'Walk On' were all well perdormed. Overall, U2 certainly enjoyed the show, as did the audience, and they gave a performance to remember.


Really good, no dropouts or anything! I'd say 3.5 stars.
Recording: Audience microphone - 2 stars


While U2 were strong at some points, the crowd were amazing the whole night. 4.5 out of 5.


I really really liked this one. It might not stay on my iPod as a whole, but 'Bad' and 'Streets' will. The performance highlights would have to be 'Elevation', 'Bad', and 'Streets'. If the sound were say, a 5 star, the 'Bad'/'Streets' portion probably would rival Slane down to the T. This portion is a must hear!
