The audience are fantastic here. One of the loudest and most exciting out of the NA Zoo Indoor shows.
17/3/1992 - Boston, Massachusetts - This review has spoilers
Here we see the first major variations in the Zoo TV setlist as both Van Diemen’s Land and a cover of Dirty Old Town, sung by Larry (and here, Edge too) make their debuts in the set, and both are a huge treat, giving more breathing space between the two main parts of the main set. It’s also St. Patrick’s Day, so Bono constantly changes up lyrics in reference to it (the first line of Zoo Station is literally “I’m ready for St. Patrick’s”) throughout the show. Both of these things combined give this show big points for uniqueness and make it stand out from every other NA Zoo Inside show I’ve heard so far. Another important thing to mention is this is the first show with a transition between Until The End of The World and Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, as every other show just had one song ending and the other starting with no link at all, which is a surprisingly large milestone in the evolution of this incredible tour. Larry takes a verse to himself at the end of Angel of Harlem which is a nice treat, and Edge is also having a fantastic night here, as of course he got to sing his own song and gave us incredible solos on both Bullet The Blue Sky and Love is Blindness. Where The Streets Have No Name and The Fly have a few errors but they can be easily looked past here. The encore is once again fantastic, With or Without You and of course Love is Blindness being the standouts here. Overall, this is a huge milestone for Zoo TV and we’re really starting to see the tour coming into its own here.

Notes from taper: Recorded in the 1st level off the floor about 15-20 rows up on Adam's side of the stage.
My celebrity sighting of the night was Neil Young who was in attendance. He was starting a string of shows at the Orpheum Theatre starting in the next day or so. I know there are a couple of other different versions of this show flowing about but I have been told this is the best one. You can check out the samples and judge for yourself. My St Patrick's torrent flood has ended. Please DO NOT SELL or redistribute in lossy formats.
Notes from Mike D. (speed fix): This one played too slow. The first part was a little off, and the middle and end were off by more. Given that the vocals but not so much the instruments were what came through, it was hard to get it just right.
As I write this, I haven't finished listening to this one, but it sounds great, and it's a rare moment where you hear Adam, Larry and the Edge all talking or singing on stage at some point in the show.

what they said
"Intimacies through large public address systems is what we do. That’s what rock’n’roll is! This is not a poetry reading. I didn’t abandon ship on the rest of my life for that. I abandoned ship because I heard Joey Ramone singing about his neighbourhood at deafening volume. That’s the thing."
- Bono on releasing Songs of Innocence on iTunes, 2014

All of U2, but especially Bono and The Edge, are huge horse racing fans and punters.
