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
