Comments: U2's first concert in Hawaii since 11 March 1985. Originally scheduled for 8 April 2006. Rockin' In The Free World was performed with Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready of Pearl Jam. The Saints Are Coming was performed with Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day. Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses was performed with a male fan, Michael Mitchell, on piano (the same fan who played piano during Yahweh on 14 December 2005). Mr Mitchell had a sign stating he could do a piano version of WGRYWH, but Bono pulled him on stage near the end of Angel Of Harlem, hoping he can play that song instead. Mr Mitchell didn't know it, so after asking Edge if he could remember the chords of WGRYWH, Bono decided they could play Mr Mitchell's chosen song instead. This show features the last performances of numerous songs: The First Time, Love And Peace Or Else, Rockin' In The Free World, The Saints Are Coming, Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, and Window In The Skies. Bullet The Blue Sky is not performed again until 8 May 2015. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

First off, Thanks to the Tapers, especially D.S.for allowing me to use the IEM. One may ask why another matrix
of this show when a good matrix already exists? Here is why, to me the other matrix sounds very distant, I don't
like the distant sound too much, so I made this one. This took countless hours over many months to make. There
were some timing issues I had to correct on all the Audience sources. The IEM has some static spots throughout,
not that bad though. This sounds much closer and what I think sounds like a well balanced recording. I diminished
the metronome on the IEM a bit, but it is still present, when I got rid of the metronome altogether, that is what made
the other matrix sound so distant. I personally don't mind the metronome. Bono's vocal's are a lot more present
and up front on this. I hate to say it, but the Audience recordings had a lot of crowd chatter throughout, I tried
my best to minimize that during the songs and inbetween where it was just way to loud. In my opinion, this is an
upgrade compared to the previous matrix. But isn't music all a matter of opinion?
Again, thanks to the tapers!
Don't sell this recording and please share Lossless only.

"I think the music is much better than the musician, but also the audience is as much applauding itself as us. One of the things people forget about these large concerts is that the audience have heard the records, it knows the songs from the radio and the music has become part of their lives. When they hear those songs their own selves are caught up in them and they are in some way applauding the connection."
- Bono, June 1985
did you know
"The Fly" was chosen as the first single of Achtung Baby because its dance beats, distorted vocals, and hard industrial edge sounded nothing like typical U2.
