"This festival starts now OK?" Absolutely right there B-man! Energy, urgency, vibrancy are all words that come to mind when thinking of this performance. The whole band are on form and it really comes through in the performance. Some of Bono's interactions with the crowd are fabulous, especially before I Fall Down, "I used to push myself to do things I wasn't good at, that's why I'm in a rock 'n' roll band" a hilarious insight into the insecurities within.

In terms of setlist, it's brilliant. All about the segues! ITABTAW-ADWM, ACD-ITH, and more surprisingly 11O'C-The Ocean, a superb segue and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see that again!


I always compare to the most up-to-date type of recording, which is always going to be superior. Consider that this is 30 years old, has 'stretching' from the audio cassette and skips some little bits of songs, and actually 3 stars is a damn good score!
Recording: "Live From Turku 07.08.1982" - 3 stars


Festivals are never going to be the greatest places to get a good crowd, there will always be someone who is not interested and goes off swimming! However, from what you can hear the audience get more and more into the show as it goes on, which is evident in the amount of encores.
