Performance notes: Originally scheduled for 17 March 2006, when the stadium was still known as Ericsson Stadium. First performance of One Tree Hill since 9 January 1990, played in honour of the New Zealander whose death inspired it, Greg Carroll. Last performance of Kite, and the only one of eight on the Vertigo Tour's fifth leg to not feature Tim Moriarty on didgeridoo. This was U2's first appearance in New Zealand since December 1993.

A solid performance nearing the end of the Vertigo tour that sports a good band performance and Bono in good vocal shape. With the only noticeable mistakes at this show being minor lyric stumbles from Bono, which happen on two songs, Miss Sarajevo and One.
A bit bass-heavy, but if you can get past that, the recording is good and the bass-heavy problem somewhat resolves more as the show goes on. Recording: Audience microphone - 3.5 stars

Overall, it was a standard solid performance from the final leg of the Vertigo tour, with a good band and vocal performance from Bono. The main selling point for this show, though is the setlist, as it features rare Vertigo tour performances of the following songs: One Tree Hill, Kite, The Saints Are Coming and Angel Of Harlem, which are all nice to have in the set. There were also fantastic snippets on Vertigo, Elevation and Beautiful Day which were all very enjoyable renditions.

"I understand why Bono likes Stay, he can channel a bit of Frank Sinatra. The song that is mesmerising and hypnotic for me is Bullet the Blue Sky. The other song I really enjoy playing live is The Crystal Ballroom."
