Awesome little gig. Best of the promo tour so far. Boots was Boots, not much to shout about. Magnificent showed a bit of potential, good feedback from the crowd. Breathe and Vertigo were both top notch. Best of the lot was Crazy Tonight though. Bono just nailed the hell out of it, the crowd loved it, I loved it. Great little gig. Q&A was shit


Solid FM recording. I have heard better broadcasts but this can't be faulted.
Recording: "Y-Rock On WXPN-FM" - 4.5 stars


Great reaction from the crowd to the new songs


Top notch. New songs being performed and recieved well.
