Performance

Overall, this is a fantastic show to end off the "proper" 'Joshua Tree' Tour. As usually, Bono takes a bit to warm up properly but puts in a solid performance overall, both showing some rough moments and cracks but also nailing other songs without issue. The band are tight except for Edge's solo in '11 O'Clock Tick Tock'. The only blunder was 'Pride'.

The setlist is quite interesting and while I really liked some older songs or rare covers making appearances, I wish they hadn't replaced other songs but rather were added on top to celebrate the end of the tour.


Sound

Listenable but not very clear. Also, there are several cuts, both in between songs and during songs which take away from the immersive experience a bit.
Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars

Audience

If it weren't for Bono's speeches throughout the show, I would be sure that this was mislabelled! The audience are absolutely incredible, singing along, cheering, clapping and having a ball throughout, very much like the best of the best audiences in the world and unlike usually more restrained American audiences.

Overall

What a great way to end a tour! The audience's energy makes up for some rougher patches or sloppy moments.

Highlights: I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Exit, Running to Stand Still, New Year's Day, Mothers of the Disappeared, With or Without You
