2011-07-02 - Nashville, Tennessee - Vanderbilt Stadium


Performance notes: This is just the second U2 concert ever in Nashville, 29 years and 7 months after the first. It is also the first U2 concert anywhere in the state of Tennessee since 14 May 1997, Memphis. The snippet of The Wanderer is quite lengthy, running to two verses. At the end of the show, Bono pulls a member of the crowd on stage to play guitar; he performs All I Want Is You with the band, dedicating it to his wife.

Having not performed in Nashville in 30 years, along with the musical tradition of the city, U2 turned in what I would call a "very good paint-by-numbers performance".


This is one of the clearest sounding audience bootlegs I've heard. The only negatives I would give the audio quality are that Larry's bass drum is *a little* too pronounced and Adam's bass doesn't stand out too much; it's there, you just have to listen for it. Good mix of the audience, too. Bono's voice is so "present" and clear that it could pass for a commercial release at times.
Recording: Audience microphone - 4.5 stars


Strong, intimate crowd considering that this was one of the smaller venues on the tour.


Between the overall audio quality and the fact that this show includes A) the only live performance of 'The Wanderer' to date, and B) the fan-played 'All I Want Is You' took place at this show, I would say this is one of the best handful of bootlegs from the tour.
