review by CMIPalaeo

The band appear to be in top form. Bono's singing is quite aggressive during parts of the show.


Good, especially for an audience recording, but not terrific.
Recording: "CS Stealthy Cardioid - R09-HR" - 3.5 stars


Great audience, easily heard but not overpowering. They REALLY got going with Magnificent, Beautiful Day, and I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.


Overall, a very good show with good sound.

Slight breaks between songs is a little annoying.

-Beautiful Day, with the 'we love you' intro
-Mysterious Ways
-I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For/Movin' On Up
-Angel of Harlem (two days in a row I've picked it as a highlight, I must be ill)
-Unknown Caller
-The Unforgettable Fire
-The way Bono speaks/raps "40" in Moment of Surrender
