Comments: Originally scheduled for 1 April 2006. Stuck In A Moment is played in its full electric form for the first time since 2 December 2001 (all earlier Vertigo Tour versions were acoustic). Desire receives its first pre-planned Vertigo Tour performance; its previous appearance on 21 February 2006 was unplanned and occurred in response to a fan request. Also, unlike the previous Vertigo performance, this version of Desire is electric rather than acoustic.

Performance

The band is great, as they were the entire 5th leg. Great versions of UTEOTW, BD, Streets, One, The Fly and probably the best Kite ever! Some aboriginal joined the band during that song and he gave it a great effect! The Saints Are Coming was a nice extra of the 5th leg and Desire was a surprise, but very nice! The new songs (COBL, Vertigo, LAPOE, SYCMIOYO) were not very great, SBS and BTBS weren't exciting either and WOWY was just weak.

Sound

Good sound, but Edge souns a bit distant. That makes COBL, Vertigo, LAPOE and SBS not as great as they could've been. Still a decent sound tough!
Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars

Audience

Good crowd, but a bit too quiet IMO...

Overall

One of the better Vertigo gigs. The highlights were the shape of the band (which was unbelievably great) and the beautiful ending with the best Kite ever. Lowlights are the opening, the political part (LAPOE-SBS-BTBS-MS) and WOWY which was unbearable...Still a must-hear just for Kite!
