--Both performances of Vertigo just owned. It's the brother to I Will Follow.
--The Electric Co., in my opinion, is better on the Vertigo Tour than any of the other tours. This was no exception. Awesome.
--No yell during New Year's Day? What's up with that?!
--City of Blinding Lights is an amazing song live, though I hate it in the middle of the set, it's a better show opener. I hope on their next tour, it's an encore opener. (By the way, it's the brother to Streets)
--The trinity of pain (aka Love and Peace or Else, Sunday Bloody Sunday and Bullet the Blue Sky) rocked also.
--Streets and One are always holy songs in any show, as well as a chance to proclaim their love for each other. I love you, Adam Clayton!
--Zoo Station & The Fly, same opinion as The Electric Co. although it varies more.
--Yay! My Sweet Lord! Peace George Harrison.
--I don't know the lyrics to Party Girl either, Bono!

It's nice to hear a good audience bootleg of this tour. I want to hear more of them. Peace from Gelsenkirchen.
