A very relaxed performance by Bono, but a bit "serious" performance by other members... I think this is more for collectors, but also some good moments...

We know that Native Son was snippeted at Vertigo at 2005-06-10 for about 10 seconds... in this dress rehearsal Edge plays the snippet for about 25 seconds... great!!!

Also New Year's Day was rehearsed with different intro (same played at 2005-06-10 concert) and sounds great, download this Dress Rehearsal for this songs, but the rest sounds just like normal soundcheck (Hershey 1992-08-07 and Lakeland 1992-02-27 for example, that we have some good moments but a very relaxed performance)


Not good, but listenable, recorded from outside stadium... in some moments 2,5.. in other 3 stars, because with some problems with security related by the taper, the end of Mysterious Ways and start of All Because of You are missing
Recording: Audience microphone - 2.5 stars


Well, the stadium is empty, but fans outside


Well... as I said before, this is most for collectors, but good intro of New Year's Day (you can hear in better quality at show of 2005-06-10) and the best moment, of course is Native Son being snippet at Vertigo with Edge playing the riff in longer way with about 25 seconds... the setlist with snippets is:

1- Vertigo / Native Son (snippet)
2- Until The End Of The World
3- The Electric Co. / Bullet With Butterfly Wings (snippet) / Send In The Clowns (snippet) / I Can See For Miles (snippet)
4- Elevation
5- New Year's Day
6- Beautiful Day / Blackbird (snippet)
7- City Of Blinding Lights
8- Miracle Drug
9- Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own / No Regrets (snippet)
10- Love And Peace Or Else
11- Sunday Bloody Sunday
12- Bullet The Blue Sky / When Johnny Comes Marching Home (snippet) / The Hands That Built America (snippet)
13- Running To Stand Still
14- Pride (In The Name Of Love)
15- Where The Streets Have No Name
