Performance

The fantastic conclusion night of the Lovetown town and 80s U2 with everyone going out tonight and the snippets on songs being great, it is also nice to see the band pull out some songs such as 11 O'Clock Tick Tock and Out Of Control in one of the band's best shows they have done in their career.

Sound

Near perfect sound on this recording which, is well-balanced between the audience noise and the band's playing so you can clearly hear what is going on tonight without having to worry about specific features of the gig being drowned out due to a poor quality recording or the audience being too loud and making the band hard to hear.
Recording: "All I Want Is U2" - 4.5 stars

Audience

The audience tonight at this show is as brilliant as the band as they sing along and definitely sound like they are enjoying what is going on tonight, they also keep a positive feeling for the entire gig and it really shows you how great Dutch crowds can be when they're really enjoying a concert.

Overall

What a mindblowing end to the EU leg of the Lovetown tour, everyone is offering strong performances tonight with many top-tier renditions of songs such as Bad, Desire and When Love Comes To Town to name a few, easily an essential show for U2 fans to listen to for live boots as this is also a very important show in their history as it is the final night of what was known as "1980s U2".
