Performance

Strange that this show is recognized as an 'iconic' Joshua Tree Tour show. Some songs are performed badly. Bullet for instance is out of sync somehow, like Bono is on a different BPM as other band members.

Sound

This part is only rated, not commented on
Recording: "Rock's Hottest Ticket" - 5 stars

Audience

Nothing beats the European crowds during this tour. In those days the American arena's had chairs on the floor...

Overall

U2 played a lot of shows during the Joshua Tree Tour that were much more 'iconic' as this one was.
