Performance

pretty good for elevation standards. i didn't notice any mistakes but wasn't fully paying attention in the beginning songs.

Sound

works for me. the band is audible, the mix doesn't sound too bad.
Recording: "Fire Chief, The Edge" - 4 stars

Audience

they were pretty noticable, definitely more so than some other shows i've heard.

Overall

Better than Slane. Which I think is the only other Elevation show I've listened to.

Highlights:
I Will Follow: Cool improv before "Your eyes make a circle" part.
When Will I See You Again (snippet) / Stuck In A Moment: I like the WWISYA snippet in the beginning and full band Stuck is pretty cool.
Kite: great song, lots of emotion
Please: Please acoustic is cool, especially with keyboards.
What's Going On: I forgot this was covered on this tour, but it sounds great. It's a good cover.
Peace On Earth (snippet) / Walk On: POE snippet is nice to hear and Walk On was a long version.
Out Of Control: Great end to the show, especially when I rewatched the footage after listening to the audio.

Lowlights:
New York: wasn't a fan of the song to start with and Bono forgets lyrics. Makes up lyrics about mid-life crisises.

Overall it was a good show. I'm not a huge fan of Elevation's setlist order though, it seems a bit weird in places. Worth checking out.
