review by Welsh_Edge

Notable Highlights (in my opinion, of course)
- Beautiful Day w/ Land Of Our Father snippet - Ardderchog!!! (brilliant)
- ISHWILF/Stand By Me - Bendigedig!!! (fantastic)
- Stay
- Unknown Caller
- Streets
- Bad w/40 snippet
- Ultraviolet
- MOS - go to bed! no, maybe not!

Bono's voice is not great.


This part is only rated, not commented on
Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars


Absolutely superb.

Crowd interaction in ISHWILF/Stand By Me is the best I've seen/heard in a U2 bootleg.


Fantastic. Or should I say Bendigedig?

IIRC, Bono said in an interview to Jo Whiley in Feb 2014 that they (U2) had a great time at this concert. Hopefully they'll be coming back soon!
