They are on Fire. This Boot has the best (Vertigo tour performance of) Until the End of the World. Also, Bono doesn't make OOTS sound like crap lol. This performance of it is way better than the DVD version.


The sound is freaking awsome.
Recording: "AT831 - Nomad JB3" - 4.5 stars


The Audience is nothing special......... you can't really hear them. Standard audience (imo).



Setlist is great.
The entire ZOO TV encore is amazing.
OOTS is another great one.
WOWY, a great snippet at the end


Sgt. Pepper's / Blackbird wasn't snippeted during BD
