The band is decent and even though the audience is lackluster they don't stop playing well. Touch and Things To Make And Do in particular, too lesser played songs on the tour, are perfromed very well.


The audio is tough to listen to, and is very muffled with too much static. It's hard to understand Bono when he's not singing. Almost all of the first 11 O'Clock Tick Tock is cut, and Out of Control is indiscernible towards the end. Taking it's age into account it could be much worse, but there are better recordings elsewhere.
Recording: Audience microphone - 2 stars


I'm not sure if it's because there was so few people at the show, but even if there was 95% of the auidence seems to just not care for U2's presence. Other Boy Tour shows house so much better and more enthusiastic crowds. The audience is so lacking that Bono tells them to pick it up in the middle of the show, but they don't.


The highlights include Touch and The Electric Co. The band is decent, but the subpar audio and the boring crowd take away from the overall experience.
