Performance

Good performance!

Bono ad-libs a little extra in Twilight. Adam comes through fantastically on An Cat Dubh. Surrender sounds excellent - Edge and Adam are tearing the song apart. Bono is funny during Two Hearts, and either improvises a few lines or sings an unlisted snippet. Edge sounds good on Seconds. The Electric Co. is quite long. Bono extends the ending of I Fall Down into a bit of a singalong.


Sound

Starts off a little rough early in Out of Control but seems to even out just a bit. By Surrender, it's probably more like 4 stars.
Recording: "ECM 939T - WM-D6 (1stGen)" - 4 stars

Audience

You can hear some of them talking in the background at certain points, but other people are quite excited. They seem to get more into it as the show progresses. Bono says Austin is an important city for them. The band seem to feel the audience has been very responsive, so they play Party Girl.

Some people fight over a white flag during Sunday Bloody Sunday, the irony of which seems lost on them, and Bono briefly halts the song to tell them off.


Overall

A strong show on the whole. Sound is pretty good, between 3.5-4 stars, and the audience generally is good. Several really strong performances.

Highlights:
- Surrender
- Two Hearts Beat As One (naturally...)
- I Fall Down
- New Year's Day (again, as always...)
- 11 O'Clock Tick Tock with the snippet of Drowning Man
