Good performance, strong, though not remarkably so.

The first The Ocean is shortened and has a somewhat odd sound, while the first 11 O'Clock Tick Tock is a bit long. Touch is very good, as is An Cat Dubh. One of the better Into the Heart performances. Another Time, Another Place is excellent and appears to have a changed outro. Things To Make and Do is shortened. I Will Follow is good but not spectacular. Out of Control is especially impassioned. The second The Ocean is better, while the second 11 O'Clock isn't as good as the first.


Seems a bit rough for the first few songs but improves. Not great, but easily listenable. Nothing is especially difficult to hear, although Bono's talking (not singing) is rather quiet. Some audience chatter can be picked up but it isn't loud and clear enough to take away from the show.


Not very much of a presence.


Good show. Not spectacular but well-played and of pretty good quality.
