Performance

I love this concert! U2 really pull it all out, Bono have some great vocal performances,it's just perfect. And a extra pluss because I had my first birthday this day, I was 1 year when they played this concert!

Sound

Incredible good sound when you have in mind that it's from the 80's. Not to much audience sound, but enough so that you hear when they sing along, and the band-sound is just how it should be on a bootleg.
Recording: "transfer from master tapes" - 5 stars

Audience

Like Bono says, they are dancing to a U2-song! Not that usual! The audience are incredible! I'm from Norway, and we usual have a crappy audience.. So this is really something!

Overall

An incredible performance, with a sound as close to a pro as you get it!
