Performance

Personally, I didn't hear any missed notes that stuck out to me. Sure, everyone has to keep up with Bono when he's improvising on something, but these boys are professionals.

Sound

Surprisingly good for an audience bootleg. There's no distinct fans screaming out or carrying on a conversation, so it's a very nice bootleg to have. I do wish that we could hear Adam a bit more in the mix, and Bono tends to overpower even Edge's guitar at times.
Recording: Analogue Cable Television Broadcast - 4.5 stars

Audience

As an Angeleno myself, I can be critical of these folks. Crowds in Los Angeles are notorious for showing late to concerts and sporting events, and even leaving early. I get the sense that this show was no exception. Sure, you've got a lot of die-hard fans here screaming their lungs out, but you can also tell that not everyone in the crowd is very familiar with the songs. For example, even most casual fans know it's "Beautiful Day" when Edge rings out on the harmonics....but it wasn't until Bono sang "The heart is a bloom" that he got a loud cheer for a song they recognized.

Exceptions to this: I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For and the People Have The Power snippet on the end of Bad.


Overall

All in all, a very great show. I'm glad I stumbled upon it for sure, and it's staying on my hard drive.

Highlights: I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, In A Little While (ad lib/snippet), Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own, Miss Sarajevo, MLK, Walk On, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses (once Bono finds a lyric sheet)

Lowlights: Probably more semi-casual U2 fans at this show than in other cities, and their lack of familiarity with the band/songs is apparent at times.
