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.

I love the last leg of the Vertigo Tour, but this one wasn't that great, methinks. As Gerard pointed out earlier, it was their first gig in months, so we shouldn't be that harsh towards them. His voice was quite good, but it became better on the later shows. The rest was just on basic fire. Standouts for me were:
- Walk On, very different feel to it and some here didn't like it, but I was surprised with it.
- Bullet the Blue Sky: Love these performances with The Hands That Built America..just great.
- Zoo Station: Always good to hear.
- With Or Without You: Nice snippet, good feel to it. Just a good one.
- Kite: Not that good compared to other ones during Vertigo, but this version kicks ass nevertheless.
On a further note: skip Pride...
Not that good. It deserves a 3-star, but a 2.5 would fit too. But Bono is audible, but very muffy. The other instruments sound okay to me, but it sounds like it's recorded at another room. Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars

"I was thinking today that one of the many gifts David gave a lot of us early on was the gift of being someone else… It’s that Oscar Wilde quote, give the man ‘a mask, and he will tell you the truth’. I took a new name and opted for an exaggerated version of myself to deal with being on a stage. "
- Bono in a letter to David Bowie's widow, Iman, 2020

The original working title of "Exit" was "Executioner's Song" because U2 was using a lot of literature as their jumping off point for the songs in terms of just taking their work in a slightly different direction.
