Absolutely brilliant performance by everyone from start to finish. Bono sounds incredible and puts in a fantastic show overall. The band are doing really well and play their arses off. Not much more to say!


This part is only rated, not commented on
Recording: "Singing Back To Lovetown" - 4.5 stars


The audience are absolutely fantastic, singing along, taking over and doing their usual shenanigans aka singing Ole Ole or singing 40 during various occasions late into the show. During People Get Ready, it takes five minutes for Bono to finally find someone who can play the guitar for him!


It's actually very hard to pick out some highlights for this show as almost everything sounds brilliant to the tiniest detail. The band are absolutely feeling it and being able to see them delivering such a fantastic performance is really wonderful!

Songs that are worth mentioning as particulary outstanding are All Along the Watchtower, People Get Ready (for the audience mainly), Van Diemen's Land, Running to Stand Still and the entire encore, especially the parts with B.B. King.
