There are a few really strange moments (especially the start of 'Sunday, Bloody Sunday' where Edge starts playing the song in a very wrong key) but overall a SUPER tight and energetic performance by the band with Bono in particularly standing out with PHENOMENAL deliveries of songs such as 'Sunday, Bloody, Sunday' (although there are a few cracks), 'Two Hearts Beat As One' and one of his best performances of 'Twilight'.


The recording gets a bit more listenable as it goes on but is absolutely plagued with cuts in between songs and a tape flip during 'Tomorrow'.
Recording: "War In London" - 2 stars


You can't wish for a much better audience than this one! They're singing along to basically every song and take over whenever Bono asks them to. Lots of cheering and laughing as well, making for a great atmosphere.


After a somewhat rough start to the show for Bono (it's the end of a six-day-run after all), his voice reaches INCREDIBLE heights after 'Sunday, Bloody Sunday' with several wildcard moments spread across the earlier songs as well. His falsetto is spotless here and many belts in almost every song makes this one of the strongest shows for Bono before the 'Conspiracy of Hope' Tour.

The band are also really tight both vocally and musically with the only noticeable exception being the already mentioned blunder during SBS. What really helps is the addition of 'Knocking on Heaven's Door' during the encores which is also played and performed absolutely fantastically with two additional musicians playing along.
