2010-12-13 - Sydney, New South Wales - ANZ Stadium


setlist

Performance notes: Jay-Z joins U2 for Sunday Bloody Sunday. Stuck In A Moment is dedicated to Michael Hutchence. Before Stuck, Bono acknowledges Oprah Winfrey, Kanye West, and Bob Geldof in the audience, and then sings a line from Do They Know It's Christmas, a song Geldof co-wrote (and condemned a few days earlier as one of the worst ever).

Performance

It would be 5 stars if The Edge wouldn't stop screwing up. This is most noticeable during Stuck In A Moment. A lot of the songs were extended, for example in Until The End Of The World instead of going straight into the bridge there was an instrumental break followed by Bono snippeted Anthem and then finally going into the bridge. There were a lot of highlights (listed at the end of this review) because it was a U2 concert.
The low points of the concert were Get On Your Boots and Stuck In A Moment. Get On Your Boots is clearly not a live song because it is almost entirely pre-recorded - even vocals.



Sound

I haven't downloaded the bootleg, but the sound at the concert was surprisingly good from the cheap seats. Of course it wasn't perfect because it was in a stadium, but it could have been 5 stars near the soundboard.
Recording: "CA cardioids - Edirol R09" - 3 stars

Audience

The audience was excellent during Beautiful Day, Elevation, I Still Haven't Found, Vertigo, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Where The Streets Have No Name and With Or Without You.

Overall

Highlights:

Until The End Of The World
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
Bad
One (it included the Hear Us Coming part)
Amazing Grace
Where The Streets Have No Name
Moment Of Surrender

Lowlights:

Get On Your Boots (Not a live song no matter how much they try)
Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of (Edge screwed up a great song)
