2009-02-23 - Paris, France - Studios Rive Gauche


Performance notes: U2 perform and are interviewed on the programme Le Grand Journal. This is their first live appearance on French TV. For more details, see our news article here. The band had considered taping Magnificent for broadcast at a later date, but in the end had to depart after Breathe in order to make it to a live radio interview on time.

This is probably one of the most overrated bootlegs I've ever come across. Bottom three performance of Boots, and the 14 contributions for Breathe are very misleading; this performance is mediocre at best.


The sound isn't the problem here. -.-
Recording: Webcast - 4.5 stars


No comment


It was Breathe's live debut so surely it must've been periodic hysteria. See Letterman or Somerville shows for simply outstanding live versions of Breathe, and the Grammy or echo awards, or the 02-27 radio apperance, or Fordham shows for Boots.

Three stars – and that is taking into account the sound quality.
