Band was in top form, they gave one of many unforgettable concerts in Belgium.


Overall good quality. There's a minor hiccup at BTBS (barely noticeable) and sound fluctuations in In God's Country and Electric Co.
Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars


One of the best audiences you'll find in any bootleg, up there with ZooTV Milan or Popmart Mexico City.


My favorite JT bootleg, not because the sound quality but because it had the perfect combination of a superb performance and a rocking audience: The band gave everything they had and the crowd was there all the way to support them.
-- Bono's voice is at its prime
-- WOWY, one of the best performances, with an extended outro and a second round of "ooh ooh"s
-- Bad, dedicated to Greg Carroll
-- TUF, one of the best performances. The audience singing along this song was just amazing stuff.
-- SBS, Exit, ISHFWILF (great audience), NYD... really, I can mention all songs.
