Performance

Band absolutely on fire since song #1 to song #18. Almost flawless performance by the 4 of them. Larry shines with his own light in this show. Bono is absolutely spot on, no vocal flaws or forgotten lyrics. I didn't spot a single mistake by The Edge. And Adam was perfect, just his usual. Specially brilliant versions of October with an extended and unique intro (check it out, can't miss it, seriously!!!), Bad with a section where Bono stopped the band and the crowd sung on their own, and New Year's Day with something similar, the crowd singing the chorus after Edge's solo and then Bono asking the band to go silent while the audience sung. And my favourite verse of the song, "maybe the tiiiiiiiime is riiiight, oooh maybe tooniiight", one of the very few times Bono has sung it live and surely the last one ever. Damn incredible.

Sound

Crisp and powerful audience recording. Not much to blame. It isn't perfect but audience-sourced bootlegs don't get much better than this!! A few brief dropouts here and then and the A Sort Of Homecoming tape flip ain't enough to drag this rating down too much.
Recording: Audience microphone - 3.5 stars

Audience

One of the most participative crowds at a festival I've ever heard. The band even changed New Year's Day to let the crowd sing the chorus after the solo. The crowd also participates notably during Bad (and its snippets), I Will Follow and, obviously, during "40".

Overall

A show you just MUST download and listen to. Might not be the most famous TUF bootleg but it's full of gems and incredible performances. You must not miss this.
