Performance

Solid & safe performance by the band. Most likely due to the fact that Bono had to stop the Berlin 2 show prematurely, this performance didn't include any risks (other than having Bono sing a full show perhaps).

Sound

For a ZOOM H2 very nice. Good clarity, albeit a bit flat on the dynamics (but this is typical for ZOOM H2). Surely this recording would benefit from a "De-clap". As it stands right now, the clapping during songs is a bit distracting. Loudness is a bit too high for my taste (+0.5 TP / 11.7 LUFS - ref = NYD).
Recording: "Zoom H2" - 4 stars

Audience

From the lower ring where our seats were, I could see most people up on their feet for most of the show. Great sense of relief that Bono was back again. The singing could have been louder with more participants (hence not the 5-star rating!) - But overall it was great

Overall

Solid & safe performance. I enjoyed hearing 'Summer Of Love' live, although, again, it was performed a bit on the safe side from Bono's part.
The songs I thought stood out most were Pride and UTEOTW. Especially in the latter Edge went full on and blew everyone "off their socks", in a manner of speaking
