The performance is top-notch. The boys are very energetic and the music is fab, although I think there's a false start on 'The Unforgettable Fire.' Bono's famous speech during 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' really adds to an already impassioned performance. Overall, this is an amazing gig, probably better than the Live from Paris concert, but unfortunately the sound on this bootleg lets it down a bit.


Regrettably, the sound is the only drawback here. You can hear the band fine -- only the quality is rather grainy. If this could be remastered, I think it would make for a phenomenal show; as it stands, a couple of songs -- 'The Unforgettable Fire,' 'Bullet the Blue Sky,' 'Spanish Eyes,' 'In God's Country,' and to my ears most prominently 'Gloria' -- are quality worse than others.
Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars


They definitely show U2 how much Denver loves them.


The only reason it isn't full marks is the sound quality impairing it somewhat.
