Notes: 4th of 5 nights in Chicago on the Innocence & Experience tour. Tough crowd and much more crowded floor than Chicago I; lots of movement during the second half as people chased Bono up and down the stage. R09 input set at 15. Level adjustments during first song. Rest of the set amplified by +1.7dB. Raw transfer with no fades or EQ.

Note: This is a 24/44.1 file set, which in most cases can't be burned directly to CD without downsampling to 16-bit. A 16-bit, CD-friendly version will be posted separately. The recording is seamless; the disc breaks above are merely a suggestion.
The fourth of five nights in Chicago; it felt a little more formulaic than the prior couple of shows, but some good rarities in the set. The audience feedback wasn't as intense as the previous night, which perhaps explains the more low-key performance. Overall, an enjoyable show with a few highlights.
There will probably be better-sounding versions of this show over the coming months, but I thought I would get this out there for those who wanted to hear this show right away. Recording quality is pretty good, though not quite up to the level of night 2 when I was also on the floor. I got as far to the side as I could to capture as much of the overhead PA as possible - the overall fidelity is somewhat lacking and I tried to punch it up somewhat with the Magix EQ functions. There is quite a bit of chatter during Bono's banters (particularly when the band came out to the b-stage, which drew a lot of traffic from the front), but I don't think there's much interference during the actual music.
This show features the first-ever performance of the bonus track "The Crystal Ballroom," and the band turned in a credible performance given that they had probably only learned it in soundcheck. John Cusack gets a special "Happy Birthday" serenade during the encore to commemorate his 49th birthday.

"I think the music is much better than the musician, but also the audience is as much applauding itself as us. One of the things people forget about these large concerts is that the audience have heard the records, it knows the songs from the radio and the music has become part of their lives. When they hear those songs their own selves are caught up in them and they are in some way applauding the connection."
- Bono, June 1985
