It was the setlist that made me download this bootleg. What a magnificent setlist it is. Wire starts a show, which was epic to hear, but it isn't actually that good an opener. But it is better than 11 O' Clock Tick Tock as an opener. The setlist is basically a War Tour setlist with TUF songs added to it.

To the performance, it was a great show to listen to. They executed the set so well, it was just brilliant. There was some jitters in Party Girl, so therefore, no 5 star. Certainly the best TUF Leg 1 show out there. Best setlist & performance


The sound was pretty dreadful. It sounded like it had been edited and someone has speeded it up so therefore, it makes Bono's voice sound rather high-pitched. At least you could hear the band, that's really what is important.
Recording: "Wired In Melbourne (UAG)" - 3 stars


Was expecting them to be better, but yeah, were still pretty good.


Performance was excellent, audience weren't there all the time, sound was poor... and that's why it gets 3.5 stars. Respectable score. I would only really listen to this for it's setlist and performance, that's why I did.
