Generally very good....although Bono's out-of-tune guitar in "The Fly" sounded pretty awful....but it was interesting to get a better sense of what he plays during this song. Besides that and Edge's little mishap in Yahweh, I'd say the band's performance was the highlight of this show.


IEM, so you're getting a lot of static throughout the whole performance. While I personally don't listen to this often, I find that I do enjoy listening to them every once in a while, for a "behind-the-scenes" sort of look at the way the show is produced. It's interesting to hear the added instruments like the piano on SYCMIOYO or the organ on LAPOE. The guy's voice always cracks me up though...."Bass.....1, 2, 3, 4!" And the click-track is pretty annoying, but it does add to certain songs. (Miss Sarajevo comes to mind). While I won't punish it for being an IEM, the constant static really does hurt the sound.

Recording: IEM - 3.5 stars


Hard to judge the audience for being too quiet since this is an IEM, but they were still audible at times, so that's always a plus.


Show Highlights:
This really goes without saying, but the Mofo/Discotheque sequence really steals the show. In fact, it's the whole reason why I chose this show for this week's BRT. Great little number, even if it was pretty sloppy.
Bono's in a great mood the whole show....laughing and cracking jokes. Many of which are actually funny!
Drums at the end of "The Ocean"....and I pretty much always hate that song.
Vertigo was surprisingly good.
Certain snippets (Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band/Please/Relax)
Eddie Vedder singing "Ol' Man River"
Bono reading "Have a glass of water!" from the teleprompter before SYCMIOYO

Show Lowlights:
Certain Snippets (Black Hills of Crap-koda)
As much as I love Africa, I've never been a big fan of making it the sole emphasis of this "Streets." Tonight's version seemed a bit over-the-top in this regard. That being said, at least it seemed to cut down on the intro into "One."
Bad sound and missing chunks of good songs (COBL, OMR)

This bootleg isn't ever going to be remembered for it's sound quality, but it will be remembered for being loaded with snippets and one of the few Vertigo-tour performances of Discotheque. If you love the Vertigo versions of this song, it's worth getting this show just to hear it performed. It's also a great show worth checking out if you don't mind IEMs and you want to hear Bono having fun during the entire show.
