Complete show: Yes, except perhaps one phrase during "40"
Combination of superior but incomplete 1st generation recording and inferior but still fair
99% complete unknown recording from bootleg cassette [Bono is God]. Except where noted,
the superior recording was used and portions of the weaker recording spliced in to create
a 99% complete version of this once rare and still excellent concert.
After having transferred the poorer recording to CDR and SHN, another (better) source was
located. However, this was incomplete. To make a complete set the two recordings were
combined and imperfections in the superior version remedied. Details, as well as known flaws,
are listed as follow:
1. First 1:55 of "Tick Tock" was missing from superior source, spliced from bootleg cassette version to form complete song
2. Recording level drop at 19:59-20:08 real time (during "Unforgettable Fire").
This was boosted back up to smooth levels
3. Clipping occurs from 20:08 to 20:14 real time. This was left alone
4. Levels boosted from 20:14 to 20:25 (some brickwalling or saturation of levels on source CDR)
5. 39:13 abrupt cut between crowd noise and start of "Sort of Homecoming" left alone
6. "MLK" and "Sort of Homecoming" were indexed together. Now separated.
7. Tiny ticks between several songs removed
1. First word of "Bad" intro missing, spliced in from poorer version
2. After end of "Pride," better recording faded out. Audience noise and Bono "thank you,"
plus first ~50 sec. of "Party Girl" were missing. Spliced back in from alternate source.
3. Very first utterance of "40" intro inserted from alt. source at 41:55
4. Last 3:00 of "40" missing from better version; spliced from alt. source. However, about a
phrase or two was missing on alt. source as well, between the "feed the world" and
"we are the world" improvs.

"Looking back, I see a lot of unfinished songs. It annoys me sometimes that I look back and see a sort of inane couplet. I have to live with it."
- Bono, 2001, on his lyrics
did you know
Twenty songs were recorded for Zooropa during the sessions, but ultimately 10 were chosen for the final track listing. One piece that was left off the record was "In Cold Blood", which featured somber lyrics written by Bono in response to the Bosnian War and was previewed prior to the album's release.
