Performance

Really good performance! The band is in a playful mood as the tour winds down. Everyone seems to add extra flourishes to the show.

Bono talks about it being 'officially' the end of The Joshua Tree Tour.
I Still Haven't Found is long and reprises the first verse before the Exodus snippet. The only JT Tour performance of 11 O'Clock Tick Tock, which sounds good; Bono sings the 'sad song' parts rather differently. Bono talks about U2 forming 11 years ago and makes fun of Larry's taste in music before he sings an Eagles song (which he forgets half of). Bad is excellent, although it's slightly cut. Edge really opens up on Bullet and makes some truly ominous sounds; Bono takes off on a tangent during the later part of it, similar to the Rattle and Hum recording and mildly reminiscent of the i+e monologue. Bono screws up Pride. He freestyles in Mothers of the Disappeared. Shine Like Stars is slightly altered. Bono gives a big thanks to the U2 crew and seems to throw some shade at venue security. Lucille in the encore is a treat.


Sound

Pretty muffly. It's not bad, the but 4 stars that this source was given is definitely too generous.

The end of Out of Control is split into the same track as Bad. Bad has a slight cut in it. "40" is cut.

Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars

Audience

Very excited! They sound great.

Overall

Excellent show. The audience is going crazy, the setlist is unusual, and the performance is excellent. The sound is the only setback - it's not bad, but it's not great either. The mediocre sound and the few cuts in the show keep this from being a full 5-star bootleg, but it still comes highly recommended!

Highlights:
- I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
- 11 O'Clock Tick Tock
- Sunday Bloody Sunday
