Comments: Live debut of Babyface. MacPhisto's call after Desire is to the author Salman Rushdie, who had been in hiding since January 1989 after Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwah on Rushdie due to Rushdie's novel The Satanic Verses. It turns out Rushdie is actually in the venue and he comes on stage and hugs Bono. It is his first public appearance in nearly five years and it receives worldwide media attention. A few years later, U2 recorded a song written by Rushdie entitled The Ground Beneath Her Feet and it appears on some editions of All That You Can't Leave Behind.

Performance

Very strong performance. All songs are delivered well. Bono's voice is strong. The bass is especially noticeable here -- thump thumping away, you can feel it all the way down your neck and back.

Sound

Not bad sound at all. It was a little better for the first few songs, but remains quiet good throughout.
Recording: Audience microphone - 4.5 stars

Audience

Great audience, not overpowering either.

Overall

Very good show. This is the night of Salman Rushdie and the Sarajevo linkups.

Highlights:
-Zoo Station (this is probably the best performance of it)
-The Fly
-Even Better Than the Real Thing
-Until the End of the World
-New Year's Day
-Numb, Zooropa (short), and Babyface are quite good and nice to see, but I don't know that I'd agree with the votes for this as the best performance of Zooropa
-Bullet the Blue Sky
-Mr MacPhisto, as always. Salman Rushdie is a treat.
-Ultra Violet
-Love Is Blindness (superb!)
