A good show. Everyone plays well and sounds very enthused.

It's not without its errors. Edge has some trip-ups in New Year's Day, Bono's voice is a little screechy at times, and Adam (though being really really rad for the rest of the song) sounds like he messes up a little in Sunday Bloody Sunday.


Very good, especially for an audience bootleg from 1983. It does have some slight static and other imperfections here and there but is easily listenable.
Recording: "Beaton - D6 Master" - 4 stars


They're not super loud, especially for an audience recording, but they're very, very enthusiastic. They do a lot of singing along.


Very good show from early on the War Tour. The band have a lot of energy; the new material is good, but most of the highlights are Boy and October songs. Of course, by now, they must've been very comfortable with those albums.

I Fall Down, 11 O'Clock Tick Tock, and Surrender all sound a little bit different to what I'm used to.
