Performance notes: Happy Birthday is sung for Adam, who was celebrating his 23rd birthday. It is sung by the audience a second time after Party Girl. The Alarm's Mike Peters and a saxophonist join U2 for Knockin' on Heaven's Door, which is the first of many times U2 cover the Bob Dylan song (though Bono himself had previously sung the song with The Alarm on 6 December 1982).

Apart from a few rough moments (like The Edge playing a bum note during 'A Day Without Me') and Bono having nasty cracks during 'New Year's Day', 'Two Hearts Beat As One' and while introducing 'I Threw a Brick Through a Window', singing flat and having no falsetto basically, this is a fantastic birthday performance for Adam. The energy is absolutely through the roof and we get superb musicianship for most of the show.
Bono sounds fantastic, particularly in the second half of 'Twilight' and during 'Knocking on Heaven's Door' which sees its debut performance by U2 tonight.
The sound is clear and warm, absolutely nothing to complain about! Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
Terrific audience that are eating out of Bono's palm. Singing along to many singings, participating in every song and whenever Bono wants them to sing with him, they do! Loved their participation during 'Party Girl' and the 'Happy Birthday' afterwards. Can't get better than this crowd!
Mostly fantastic show from the 'War' Tour that is dripping with energy and creativity. Fun snippets by Bono and a very welcome debut performance of 'Knocking on Heaven's Door'. There are a few downsides that prevent this show from being a five star experience, mostly limited to Bono overdriving his voice or struggling with falsetto.

what they said
"The final piece of the puzzle was literally me walking into the studio one day and I had this backing vocal idea. I asked for a microphone, I jumped on a mic. I just started singing this little harmony over the chorus and then Daniel Lanois grabbed another mic. Basically, the two voices cascaded around the chorus line. And that sort of really sealed the deal."
