Performance

The band is super energetic and ready to perform. Not a single song is performed poorly. The Electric Co. sounds particularly good with extended lyrics, and 11 O'Clock Tick Tock is full of emotion! It's early U2 in the Netherlands for the first time, at some of their best.

Sound

The sound is absolutely amazing, especially for this era. The quality is nearly up-to-par with the Boy studio album.
Recording: "Touch" - 5 stars

Audience

The audience is very enthusiastic and happy to be there, unlike some other shows of this era. They don't interupt the music and Bono talks with them frequently throughout the show.

Overall

The highlights are really all of the songs, but if I had to choose some of the best I'd say A Day Without Me, Twilight, I Will Follow, 11 O'Clock Tick Tock, and The Electric Co. This is definitely in the top three best Boy Tour concerts. There's not a whole lot to say other than that you need to give this a listen if you are even remotely a fan of U2!
