2001-10-19 - Baltimore, Maryland - Arena


Performance notes: Please is performed for the first time since March 1998. This is the only full band, electric performance of Please on the Elevation Tour; all subsequent performances are acoustic. In addition, this is the first time U2 have covered Knockin' On Heaven's Door since November 1992 (though Bono did perform it with Bob Dylan in March 1999). Garbage were the originally scheduled opener but pulled out due to illness; locals Graham Parker and The Figgs were a last-minute replacement and played the support slot before their own club gig that night.

Another good show with some stand outs. It seems that 'Elevation' always seems to be great, no matter the show. 'Beautiful Day' and 'Until the End of the World' seemed above average. 'New Year's Day' benefitted from Bono's shrill at the start, always a sign of a great version. 'Out of Control' was just ok, and Bono's speech wasn't all too special. 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' was another average performance, as was 'Stuck in a Moment'. 'Kite' was dedicated to Ali's dad, who was in attendance that night. 'Angel of Harlem' was pretty good. 'Knockin On Heaven's Door' was a treat. 'Staring' showed the band had improved through time this show. 'Please' was amazing. It's sounded so raw and so cool here. The lead into 'Streets' gave me chills, and the band pull off a rocking version once again. 'Still Haven't Found' was great, coming off an amazing 'Streets'. 'Pride' was good, but what surprised me was they played MLK's speech during the middle a la Zoo TV
style. Edge's guitar tears open the night sky with a vengance during 'Bullet', the band still on fire since 'Please'. 'What's Going On' was average here, 'New York' too. 'One' and 'Walk On' close a really nice show.


3 stars tops. The sound is ok, but nothing spectacular here.
Recording: "Sony MZ-R37 + ECM-717" - 3.5 stars


Your average audience from the tour, loud, excited, and great at every moment. It seems crowds love 'Still Haven't Found' and enjoy singing along.


Average and somewhat forgettable show. Higlights include 'Knockin', 'Please', 'Streets', and 'Pride'. There are better shows out there though, but this is a fun listen.
