Performance

A pretty good performance on the earlier stages of the Outside Broadcast leg of the Zoo TV which features both a mixture of good and bad performances from the band, while the show starts off great Zoo Station to Until The End Of The World things, unfortunately, take a turn for the worst with a performance of New Year's Day that is a trainwreck due to IEMs malfunctioning, after that things mostly return to good up until Bad where due to an audience member coming up on stage a weird moment happens during the performance which then makes Bono sing the chorus a lot later than he should and after another return to normal the band then start off the encores by playing a messy version of Desire albeit with an amusing moment from Bono during the start of the song so, the performance is a bit of a weird one tonight though it is mostly good even with factors such as Bono being in slightly weaker form tonight.

Sound

A good sound quality due to being a soundboard but, it, unfortunately, suffers from the main problem that soundboards have which is being "dry" and lacking the sound of the audience which takes away the atmosphere of the performance and only gives you band's performance aspect of the entire show which is only a piece of the overall performance of the show as I personally think audience engagement can sometimes affect a show for the better and for the worst.
Recording: Soundboard - 4 stars

Audience

I couldn't really hear them so there's not much to say about them here other than the fact that they attended this show and watched the band perform this setlist of songs.

Overall

So, for the overall show rating, I'd say that this show is a bit of a hit or miss performance on the tour and while you have some great performances of songs such as Love Is Blindness and the opening Achtung Baby songs these are counteracted by some strange, trainwrecked or even messy renditions of songs such as New Year's Day, Bad and Desire which, does honestly put this gig down in a few spots which is a shame because if these lows hadn't have happened this show would have ranked a lot higher in terms of performances on the tour but, I guess it is what it is and you can't always have a perfect performance due to factors due to monitor malfunctions and stuff like that.
Highlights included:
Zoo Station
The Fly
Even Better Than The Real Thing
