Performance

The band are new-found superstars and give a rousing show. All the songs are excellent.

Bono does some preaching during Bullet the Blue Sky and Sunday Bloody Sunday. Exit sounds a little different to later in the tour. The Electric Co. has a great snippet. It's impressive that this is the tour debut of Ballad of Springhill, it sounds great. Bono hasn't quite figured out Shine Like Stars yet, but he gives an awesome, long rendition of this bit in With or Without You.


Sound

It's good sound, not perfect but pretty clear. No hiss or distortion except in literally the first couple of seconds.
Recording: "JEMS Master - Hi-Res" - 4 stars

Audience

They are so loud during October that the band stop. They're also exceptionally great during Bad, New Year's Day, Pride, Mothers of the Disappeared, and "40." They carry the show and lift the band up higher, AND are very receptive the political messages.

Bottom line, I really wish U2 audiences were still like this.


Overall

A very good show, with a pretty good-sounding source. The crowd is fabulous and the band give a great performance. Bono does lots of political talk, and an Amnesty International representative is onstage during Pride. Mothers of the Disappeared is dedicated to political prisoners and it runs for about eight minutes.

Highlights:
- The Unforgettable Fire (one of the very best)
- Bullet the Blue Sky
- Running To Stand Still
- Exit (somewhat different to second-and-third-leg versions)
- The Electric Co. (one of the very best)
- Bad
- Ballad of Springhill
- New Year's Day
- Mothers of the Disappeared (one of the very best)
