Mainly very good and enthusiastic performance. A couple of noticeable errors with missing lyrics in out of control and edge getting lost a bit with the 11 o’clock tick tock (2nd performance) solo but nothing drastic just noticeable.


Great quality, I downloaded the version from Wolfgang’s vault.
Recording: Soundboard - 3.5 stars


It sounded like a small but very enthusiastic audience. Bono seemed to be enjoying the reaction based on a few comments about enjoying the performance.


Very good show. There’s a better shows to listen to from the early days but this is still worth a go.
