Bono's voice is really strong. Edge is doing a great job, and Adam's bass is nice and clear. The drums come through nicely as well (especially on I Will Follow). Overall, it's a truly excellent job by U2.
Bono claims he plays guitar. I really enjoyed imagining the look Edge exchanged with Adam and Larry when he said that. Bono recites a quote from Jack Kerouac's On the Road at the beginning of Where the Streets Have No Name. Bono sings some 'ooohs' near the end of Streets that sound an awful lot like the ones from One. There is either a snippet of a song not listed on the show page during I Will Follow or Bono improvises some lyrics. Bono jokes about Larry being unable to sing Angel of Harlem.
Very good sounding bootleg. Recording: "Singing Back To Lovetown" - 4.5 stars
The audience are really pumped. Lots of clapping along and singing. This is probably one of the best audiences I can remember having heard. They're really, really great. They sing 'how long to sing this song' from "40" during the encore break.
Although apparently they all lie about being able to play the guitar.
Terrific show, definitely download it! Every song is played powerfully.
- All Along the Watchtower
- All I Want Is You
- I Will Follow
- Van Diemen's Land (one of the best performances)
- Bullet the Blue Sky with a snippet of 11 O'Clock Tick Tock
- Running To Stand Still
- the audience for the entire show, they're just incredible

PS: I have left the tapeflip after NYD "as is," including 0.154
seconds of "dead air."
*reference here is Twist&Shout, played over the PA before
show starts. The original clocks "2:32", while the tape needs
2:35 to complete Twist&Shout (I have measured, however, between
noticeable markers to make sure that the difference stands indeed
around the three seconds).
** I have included the PA music as an optional track to fit
together with an additional "God Pt2". The concert can be burned
to CD's using the fades after ISHFWILF, either with or without
the PA music.

what they said
"The desert was immensely inspirational to us as a mental image for this record. Most people would take the desert on face value and think it's some kind of barren place, which of course is true. But in the right frame of mind, it's also a very positive image, because you can actually do something with blank canvas, which is effectively what the desert is."
- Adam Clayton on the Joshua Tree
did you know
During the recording sessions of Achtung Baby, the band were working on a primitive version of Mysterious Ways called 'Sick Puppy'. During these versions, The Edge improvised a chord progression that the rest of the band worked with. From that chord progression the song 'One' was born, ultimately changing the outlook of the sessions and more importantly, keeping the band together.
