The band sound great, however Bono's voice does not. He just sounds tired throughout the show. It's not from a lack of effort though. I thought all four gave everything they had that night.


During the actual songs, the sound is excellent. However, in between songs, you can tell there were some edits, and the announcer who discusses every single song as it begins gets on my nerves quickly. Sometimes he even talks over Bono. If you can get past that, then the actual music sounds great.
Recording: FM Aerial Broadcast - 4.5 stars


It's my belief that South American U2 audiences are the best, and they don't disappoint here.


While the main set was fairly standard, it still delivered some great moments. I have always loved City of Blinding Lights as an opener. The First Time is a great song in the middle over the main set. And Streets, as usual, gets the crowd going. The first encore was standard as well, and you could tell Bono's voice was getting tired. But there was great energy during The Fly. Lastly, the highlight for me was the second encore. They play a beautiful version of Mothers of the Disappeared. I loved hearing the lightly played Original of the Species. And they end it with an outstanding version of All I Want I You, probably one of my top 5 favorite versions of the song. Great way to end a concert.
Highlights: COBL, Streets, MOTD, AIWIY
