1992-09-09 - Pontiac, Michigan - Pontiac Silverdome


Performance notes: Satellite link up to MTV Video Awards show. More on U2's MTV Award history can be found here:

So Cruel's appearance in the setlist is notable: it is performed solely by Bono, and although he had performed it once before, this is the first time he sings the song's full lyrics as the song's debut featured just half of the song.

Unfortunately, only first part of concert, but pretty strong performance... I'm pretty curious how about sounds So Cruel in this concert (reports says Bono sang full lyrics, but I believe he didn't sang all, but the major part)

EDIT IN 2023: I was right about So Cruel, Bono didn't sang whole lyrics, but the major part, and his solo version sounded great! Finally I could listen this version after many years!


Great sound
Recording: Soundboard - 5 stars


This part is only rated, not commented on


Well, I know only part of this show available in any site is between Zoo Station and Wild Rover (without One)... 4,5 stars for material available, but 2,5 judging this as an imcomplete bootleg

Highlights: The Fly, Mysterious Ways (and So Cruel from Achtung Baby 30 Live)
