Performance

Everyone seems on top form, especially Adam. Bono at times seems half-way between being the bravado front man I've come to know and love and possibly being over-awed by the venue - remember the last time they played Wembley was Live Aid and he thought they'd really messed it up.

Sound

I know this is classed as 5 stars, and it is a soundboard recording, but there's a few niggles with me. Firstly, as the other 2 reviewers have pointed out, there is a massive delay/echo on Bono's voice during the first few tracks. Secondly, the audience is hardly heard throughout. Now I love soundboard recordings, but one with no audience is a little weird to listen to, especially in Pride. Also, at times the balance between the instruments isn't quite right. Adam can be heard clearly throughout. Sometimes Larry sounds too heavy (especially in Bad) and sometimes too quiet. I think Edge needs cranking up all the way through.
Recording: "Analogue Soundboard Recording (UAG)" - 4 stars

Audience

I'd love to be able to review them, but they are barely audible!

Overall

Obviously a massive gig for the band - the first time back at Wembley after Live Aid, and the bootleg is well worth a listen.

Sunday Bloody Sunday is the highlight of the set for me. I love it when they start off with just Bono and Edge and then Larry and Adam crank up the power later in the song.

However, because of the issues I have with the sound it won't keep me coming back and back again for a JT show like "Rock's Hottest Ticket" at Rosemount, Chicago does.
