This sounded like a very tired performance from everyone. Bono seemed to shout quite alot instead of sing, and his voice seemed to be very poor. After a fairly strong start the setlist seemed to be disjointed from ISHFWILF onwards until the ZS - MW. Streets lacked power and there seemed to be timing mistakes in Elevation and The First Time. The only saviour of the set for me was Mothers, a lovely version with a ukelele I believe! However, overall disappointing.


In terms of sound quality, this boot can not be beaten.

However, it's one of the most annoying boots to listen to! The Argentinian voice-over inbetween every song really did my head in! Especially when he talks over the music intro or Bono. Also, the editing between songs annoyed me.

Recording: FM Aerial Broadcast - 4.5 stars


Absolutely amazing. From the Spanish counting in Vertigo to the "Oh Oh Oh Oh's" at the end of Pride they really carried the band through this one. Possibly the best audience I've heard on a bootleg.


Really, I'd only recommend this for Mothers and the sound quality. Everything else can be found in a better performance on a different boot.
