setlist

Comments: U2 botch Staring At The Sun the first time around and perform it again. At the end of Please, Larry plays a snippet of Sunday Bloody Sunday's distinctive drumming. This show features the live debuts of Mofo, Do You Feel Loved, Last Night On Earth, Gone, If God Will Send His Angels (only time a full band version is played), Staring At The Sun, Miami, Please, Discotheque, If You Wear That Velvet Dress, and Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me.

Overall

Highlights: Mofo (I liked this version that's more similiar to the album's one, although The Edge sounds far), Do You Feel Loved, Gone, the transition between UTEOTW and If God Will Send His Angels, Bono introducing Staring At The Sun, triumphantly, "THIS IS OUR NEW SINGLE!" and then...fail!, Bullet The Blue Sky-Please-Streets.
Lowlights: even if I liked it, EBTTRT it's ruined by Bono's attempted falsetto, I felt bad for him; Pride (it wasn't its tour, actually), Staring At The Sun (maybe because I'm used to the acoustic version, I didn't like the full band rendition), Miami, Discothèque, One is cut right before The Edge's solo.

Well, this concert has become over the years one of the most famous, negatively speaking, but I think it deserves a listen.
It's not their worst.
