Performance

A fantastic performance from everyone for the final show of the Joshua Tree tour, with the music played on stage being played with few mistakes and Bono giving a good effort in terms of vocals even if he does have a couple of rough patches throughout particularly on the high notes though this is quite common on this tour although it does improve slightly on this 3rd leg.

Overall

Overall, it was an excellent conclusion for the 1987 Joshua Tree tour, with the band in fine form throughout, delivering strong performances of all songs in the set, with this show, in particular, featuring some particularly noteworthy inclusions in the setlist, such as rare Joshua Tree performances of One Tree Hill, Mothers Of The Disappeared and Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home) due to taking place in December and being the final show of the tour. And while I prefer the 2nd night in Hampton for a December '87 performance, I would still recommend this show for its uniqueness alone and performance, which I'd still deem one of the strongest performances I've heard from the tour.

Highlights:
Where The Streets Have No Name
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
One Tree Hill
Exit
Helter Skelter
Bad
Bullet The Blue Sky
With Or Without You
Mothers Of The Disappeared
People Get Ready
Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)
