The Vertigo Tour, given what I've listened, seems to alternate between being either slightly stale, going-through-the motions performances that don't quite shine, or being total rockers. This is absolutely in the second category.
To me at least, Larry's drumming was especially prominent -- most noticeably in City of Blinding Lights. There are a lot of moments where Bono holds notes for a really long time, especially taking into consideration the struggles he often had with his voice on this tour. He dedicates Sunday Bloody Sunday to The Clash.
I think Edge slips up at the start of Bad, but it sounds pretty cool.
Very, very good sound. I was torn between 4.5 and 5 stars, but what the hey, went with 5. The sound is *veeeeery* slightly muffled, but it doesn't make listening to this awesome show difficult in the slightest. No complaints. Recording: "Japanese Skies " - 4 stars
The audience sing along and cheer loudly. They're a great crowd, but who wouldn't be at a show like this?
Quite possibly the best Vertigo gig I've yet heard - the only competition it has from what I've listened to is Madison Square Garden 2005-10-11. Highly recommended.
Window In the Skies is played for the first time ever.
- City of Blinding Lights (probably the best performance I've heard)
- Beautiful Day with snippets (best performance I've heard)
- Window In the Skies
- Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
- Bad (has a slightly unusual sound, I think?)
- I'm a sucker for the rapid transition from Sunday Bloody Sunday to Bullet the Blue Sky
- I can't believe I'm saying this, but... Angel of Harlem was really very good.
- One Tree Hill

"Joy is a very hard thing to conjure and happiness won't do. We just couldn't get the fun onto the album. The songs weren't good enough. The themes were there. Some of the melodies were there. But it couldn't seem to get airborne."
- Bono on Pop
did you know
In U2's very early days, a guy called Eugene who played drums in a north Dublin rock outfit called Stryder occasionally filled in for Larry on the gigs he couldn't make.
