Performance

Another high energy and a fantastic performance from the Unforgettable Fire Tour with everyone putting a lot of effort into their performances tonight and playing great renditions of almost everything in the set, Bono also seems to be in good form tonight as he is able to get through the set without having that much rough moments in songs even though some still happen in spots of the show.

Sound

A great audience recording with a nice warm sound to it, in my opinion, allows the listener to experience the show in a well-listenable way while also being able to pay attention to things such as specific instrumentals and the audience of the show.
Recording: "Unforgettably Rare" - 4.5 stars

Audience

Another great North American audience for this night in New Jersey with them giving the gig great energy and being overall really enthusiastic with what the band are performing so they are really engaged with the show tonight.

Overall

My 2nd Unforgettable Fire concert and just like the first show it features a band who are really enjoying themselves on stage by performing great renditions of songs and even pulling things out such as the longest ever rendition of Bad with some nice snippets done as well so, this performance truly seems like an elite show on this tour or this tour leg so I'd personally recommend someone to listen to this.
Song highlights for me included:
11 O'Clock Tick Tock
Seconds
The Unforgettable Fire
Wire/Give Me Some Truth (snippet)
The Cry/The Electric Co./Amazing Grace (snippet)
Bad/I'm Waiting For The Man (snippet)/You've Got To Hide Your Love Away (snippet)/Ruby Tuesday (snippet)/Sympathy For The Devil (snippet) longest version!
Party Girl
Gloria
"40"
