Performance notes: This is the last time U2 cover Bob Dylan's song Maggie's Farm. However, two years later, Bono comes on stage at a Dylan concert in Dublin and they perform the song together. Bono pulls a guest guitarist on stage for People Get Ready. At the end, Bono asks the guy if he's in a band - he is, and the other band members are also at the concert. They come up on stage and play a messy Knockin' On Heaven's Door cover with U2.

Performance

A spirited performance with a great amount of energy tonight which, shows that the band are happy to be on stage tonight with everyone in good form as well, Bono has a couple of rough patches throughout the course of the show but, he mostly holds up well unlike performances on the tour such as Tempe and Buffalo so, that's a positive and with many nice renditions of songs tonight this show is one of the best performances I've heard on the tour leg so far.

Sound

Great sounding AUD with good clarity so you can be sure that you can hear what the band are doing throughout the course of the show though, the audience is a bit low in the mix so you can't really hear them apart from the members who are close to the taper and after songs where they cheer.
Recording: "Back Home With You" - 3.5 stars

Audience

I couldn't really hear them due to the recording but, when I did hear them they seemed to be a standard one who seemed to be mostly engaged with the performance by singing along and even cheering during songs such as People Get Ready due to the guest guitar player.

Overall

A fantastic performance from the 2nd leg in Europe during the Joshua Tree tour with the band being in great form tonight and a couple of unique moments that managed to make the performance interesting from start to finish such as, the final performance of the Maggie's Farm cover which, was a good send-off rendition and the performances of both People Get Ready and Knockin' On Heaven's Door featuring guest musicians and a crowd that seemed to be enjoying these two songs a lot so, I'd say this is a show that you don't want to miss from this leg of the tour.
