An alright performance on the 1st leg of the Lovetown tour with everyone putting on a solid albeit sloppy in places performance, Bono also sounds a bit rough in places though, that could be due to the fact that he is still recovering from laryngitis as this and he does mostly get better as the show progresses and Edge ever puts in a solo during Van Diemen's Land which, was nice to hear but, overall I'd say there are a lot more shows on this leg and the European leg where the band put in a better performance.


Unlike most of the people listening, I didn't really find anything wrong with the sound here, other than the fact that the soundboard has gone through a couple of tape generations which, does make the recording sound overblown and distorted in spots.
Recording: "Race Of Angels" - 3.5 stars

So... If I'm going to be honest here, this has to be one of the weakest Lovetown shows I have heard so far, but, it still had its fair share of good/interesting moments in the mix which made the performance slightly more interesting though, I would personally put on better shows if I wanted to hear something from this tour leg or from Lovetown in general.
