Performance

The band play really well. Bono's voice isn't in the very best form but he's singing his heart out. Adam really stands out on this recording. Bono is funny between Electric Co and I Fall Down.

Sound

Very good sound, if a tad uneven in places (you can tell it wavers in Gloria and Rejoice, for example), sometimes it seems like Edge's backing vocals aren't there.
Recording: "Fradoca Remaster" - 4.5 stars

Audience

They're a bit more apparent at the beginning of the show. They sound like they're enthusiastic but they're not a huge part of the recording. Bono leads them in a big singalong in 11 O'Clock.

Overall

Possibly the best October concert. Truly strong performance in the band's North American home-away-from-home.

Highlights:
- Another Time, Another Place
- I Threw a Brick Through a Window
- An Cat Dubh/Into the Heart
- probably the best With a Shout performance
- As always, 11 O'Clock Tick Tock
- The Ocean
