Good performance by the band, with minor mistakes in NYD (Bono tries to mask this saying that Edge changed the solo, but then he admits it was an accident).
Very good audience recording. Recording: "Hours Of Fun" - 4 stars
They're Dutch, so they're amazing, singing loudly in all songs. You can hear a lot of chatting in the middle of some songs (like Miss Sarajevo), and it gets pretty annoying soon.
Dutch bootlegs are always great, and this is no exception. The setlist is great; in the European leg it usually was pretty rigid.
-- WGRYWH. This is the star of the night. Full band version, simply the best outside ZooTV.
-- The political trio LPOE-SBS-BTSS. The London bombings were still very recent and the songs sounded more relevant than ever.
-- 2nd performance ever of Miss Sarajevo (dedicated to Theo Van Gogh) and first time with Bono singing the Pavarotti part. I've heard better versions, but it was a nice surprise for the audience and they responded well.
-- One with Unchained Melody (and we can hear a guy singing it out of tune), like in the good old times.
-- Original Of The Species. Always glad to see it in the setlist.
-- The fact that they closed with 40 and not with an encore of Vertigo. Don't get me wrong, I like that song, and usually the encore was way better, but it's a waste to play it 2 times in the same show.

#NB: The matrix mix kicks in after 66 seconds - don't let the first few notes scare you away!
In fact I have lost my original notes
The really strong assset of this mix is the Dutch audience. They are "full blown" right from
the start. Highlight in this respect is ISHFWLF, closdely followed by Elevation. Actually this
whole show was crazy, from start to finish.
Being 10 years ago now right to this day, and with 4 fresh Amsterdam concerts coming up, I just
had to share it with you again. This is my homecrowd & this is where I come from. This is U2Holland.

"I thought 'pop' was a term of abuse, it seemed sort of insulting and lightweight. I didn't realise how cool it was. Because some of the best music does have a lightweight quality, it has a kind of oxygen in it, which is not to say it's emotionally shallow. We've had to get the brightly coloured wrapping paper right, because what's underneath is not so sweet."
- Bono describing the difference between the "surface" of the songs to "what lies beneath".
did you know
In the live performance of 'The Electric Co.' from 1983's Under A Blood Red Sky, Bono sang a snippet of Stephen Sondheim's 'Send In The Clowns'. U2 had failed to get permission for this 27-second snippet and later agreed to pay a $50,000 penalty as well as removing the snippet from later pressings.
