U2 at the beginning with a good performance. Bono sing "there's a late late show" instead of "TV show" like it's in the original song.


The overall sound is really good. I can hear all the instruments very well and Bono voice is very clear. Just a problem with an annoying high frequency noise on the whole song (maybe recorded with high volume at the first taping) that made me to give 3.5 stars.
Recording: Audience microphone - 5 stars


Well just perfect for the sound. There's studio audience so only clapping noise before and after the song!


This recording is complete but the number of songs (just 1) and the song itself not a their masterpiece make to forget this show right after the download. For U2 bootleg collectors only!
