Performance notes: Live debuts of Hawkmoon 269, Desire, All I Want Is You, and God Part II. Hawkmoon 269 is considerably different to the studio version: although the song is shorter overall, its intro is extended and features beautiful and ethereal guitar work by The Edge. Its seven future performances are done in the same style. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

It's fine for my ears. I'm quite used to lower quality audience recordings myself so this sounds fine, but this won't suit any newcomers to bootlegs very well, especially with the cuts. Recording: Audience microphone - 2 stars
This part is only rated, not commented on
From what we have, it sounds great. Everybody's firing on all cylinders and Bono is at the top of his Lovetown self. We already have some interesting things, such as the completely different God Part II solo to the extra phrasings on Where the Streets Have No Name, which would become rarer as the tour went on. Some snippets here also would slowly be dropped as the tour went on, one of which would be revived in the final Rotterdam show, being So You Want to be a Rock 'N' Roll Star in Desire. If this show was complete I'd give it a higher rating, but it still gets a very solid 8/10 from what we have.

"Some people were expecting us to come out with sonic fireworks, a totally different sound. And it is very different, but the real changes are in perspective view and songwriting. And going into telling these very personal stories. It turns out everybody has a street they grow up from."
- Bono on Songs of Innocence, 2014

The song 'I Fall Down' is about a girl Bono knew named Julie. She's the daughter of a wealthy lawyer in New York, who ended up moving to ireland and becoming involved in the same bible group U2 were in. She later became involved with Pod, a roadie for U2 at the time, the 'John' in the song.
