Performance notes: U2 perform in Greece for the first time in approximately 13 years. This is only their second Greek concert ever, after a Popmart gig in Thessaloniki. At the end of Vertigo, Bono wore a pair of flashing devil horns handed to him by a member of the audience. This show features the 100th ever performance of Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me.

It's good but not great. If I were there, I wouldn't have had anything to complain about, and there are even a few moments where they break the bar (fairly strong Mysterious Ways comes to mind).

EASILY the funniest version of Vertigo I've ever heard. Something must be going on with the in-ears, because they're fighting through like the whole song. The final time Edge says "hola" is so phoned in and aggravated it made me laugh out loud.

Looking back after ten years, its baffling to hear Get On Your Boots, especially when its one of the only glimpses of NLOTH the entire show has to offer. With that being said, the setlist and overall delivery reminds me a lot of what I loved about the 360 Tour.


Edge vocals are high in the mix which I appreciate. His guitar at the end of Mysterious Ways really seemed to punch through to me, too - similar effect in Magnificent. Pretty good band recording, audience isn't as much in the mix.
Recording: "Matrix " - 3.5 stars


Yeah you can tell they're into it, first show in Greece in like 13 years, but the recording doesn't highlight them.


Standard 360 show with a few standout moments.

Highlights: Magnificent, Mysterious Ways, hearing them completely whiff on Vertigo in front of tens of thousands of people.
