This is my review number 150... so I decided to wrote about this, one of my first shows downloaded here, so let's go!
St Patrick's Day, so band was excited, ready for a good show, and they did
Bono starts the fun in the first line of the first song... he change the line to "I'm ready... to shake that snake!!"... fits well with occasion, he messed up The Fly, but still good version... one of the best versions of Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses and best Dirty Old Town, with Larry, Edge and Bono (Edge and Bono doing in a very similar way) singing one verse each... Van Diemen's Land was played on Zoo, so this was the reason that this show was one of the first downloaded by me...
Second half is also strong... Good Van Diemen's Land into Bad, great Bullet The Blue Sky... and the show going ok until the end, and the encore contains a good With Or Without You with Edge's solo sounds like the start of Shine Like Stars closing with a great Love is Blindness
Probably a 3,25 stars Recording: "In Boston on St Patricks Day" - 3.5 stars
They were very happy
Very good show... strong and relaxed at same time.. of course would to give 5 stars if the sound was better
Highlights: Zoo Station, Mysterious Ways, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses (excellent), Dirty Old Town (excellent), Van Diemen's Land (excellent with Edge introducing the song), Bullet The Blue Sky, Running To Stand Still, With Or Without You and Love is Blindness (excellent)

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
"When I Look At The World was inspired by the idea of a cynic having somebody in their live that was avoiding any cynicism, it was really more representative of what we all face, when it's just hard to maintain optimism and a positive outlook where you just want to surrender to the cynicism and hopelessness."
- The Edge on When I Look At The World, 2020
