review by ahn1991

The band was in top form that night.
I watch it stream live on youtube, I listened to the bootleg, and I bought the DVD. In all sources, the band played very well and was extremely enthusiastic about performing for all the world to see.


Apparently, they remove a 5 star quality recording (which happens to be the one I downloaded). I haven't heard the 4 star quality recording they have posted, but if it's anything like the 5-star was before it, it's a very good listen.


Many people seem to crucify the audience as being "dead" or "unresponsive." The youtube stream appears to show that, but the bootleg proves otherwise. Listening to the bootleg, you could clearly hear the crowd get into most of the songs. One noticeable attendee even cheered through Desmond Tutu's speech.

However, during ISHFWILF Bono had to try a bit harder than usual to get the crowd into the sing along. So obviously the crowd is nothing like Dublin (where they had a strong singalong during Streets), but comatose they were certainly not.


5 stars!


Beautiful Day with a snippet from In God's Country
Elevation --> In a Little While is always a nice way to go
Until the End of the World was amazing (visuals were nice too)
COBL, Vertigo, Streets - All great as always

Boots, Magnificent, Unknown Caller, No Line - all very good
Ultraviolet, absolutely amazing

MoS- I don't know why people say that this song sucks as a closer. It's really quite beautiful.

Crazy (remix) - I was never into the remix that much. The album version is far more musically and lyrically beautiful (the remix cuts out a TON of lyrics)
