Performance

U2 on a boat! Special show for the lads (they met Anton Corbijn here too!) and they gave a terrific show.

Sound

Overall it's very good for an October show, but during Gloria and Rejoice there are cuts and we can hear conversations instead of the band! The transition between some songs is cut too.
Recording: "Riverboat President" - 4.5 stars

Audience

Some people chatting in the middle of songs and there's a dude with a whistle, which was annoying.

Overall

A top 5 October bootleg for its quality of the performance and sound. Another Time, Another Place sounded great, with even more punch than usual. Then we have 2 combos that always work: Brick/A Day Without Me and Cat Dubh/Into The Heart. Stories For Boys makes one of its last appearances in full form and the energy picks up until the end. Out of Control closed the main set brilliantly and in the encore, Fire and 11 O'Clock were very good too.
