Performance notes: Originally scheduled for 21 March 2006. In Angel Of Harlem, Bono sung "Young Australians" to the tune of Young Americans. Walk On is performed in full electric form for the first time since 27 February 2002 (the previous Vertigo Tour versions had been acoustic). Kite is played for the first time since 2 December 2001 and features a guest appearance by Tim Moriarty on didgeridoo - Moriarty joins the band during Kite at the other Australian concerts too. Angel Of Harlem receives its first pre-planned performance since 1 December 2001; its previous Vertigo appearance on 29 October 2005 occurred after a fan was pulled on stage to play guitar. This is U2's first appearance in Australia since February 1998. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

The band performed well, considering the time off they took earlier in the year. Kite is a standout, up there with their best versions of this amazing song. The ZOO TV encore is another standout, with Zoo Station and The Fly creating confusion among the crowd. Walk On was rusty, but still a winner. This show featured the first perfomance of The Saints Are Coming at a U2 concert and it was received with mixed views. The closing track is up there with the best.
The sound is reasonably muffled, but it does get better towards the end of the show, with crowd noise at its lowest in the last two tracks. The audience is too vocal throughout, but still listenable. Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars
The audience was good, but on the bootleg they are too noisy. Too close to the mics. But having a recording like this is better than nothing.
Kite was the biggest standout.
ZOO TV encore was a winner.

"We’re writing these songs. We’re demoing them. But we’ve different albums, we have this very reflective album called Songs of Ascent. It’s nearly finished. But it’s just not … to put it out…It’s about 70% there. It’s just not right for us. We only want to put out music when we’re ready to take the music to our audience. Live."
- Bono on new U2 music, November 2022
