Performance

I thought this was a very good performance, especially for being so early in the PopMart tour.

Staring at the Sun was very good, even with small false start, not yet played in the stripped-down acoustic way it would be later. If God Will Send His Angels and Do You Feel Loved are still in the set. Edge's karaoke was fun and really got the audience going. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For and Pride, which I ordinarily think are a bit flat and even (gasp) boring on the PopMart tour were very lively here, quite strong performances.


Sound

Not perfect sound, but one of the better-sounding PopMart boots I've listened to. Mofo is a bit rocky, and Where the Streets Have No Name seems quiet, as do a few other songs.
Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars

Audience

Very good audience, super-enthusiastic and loud, but not an overpowering presence.

Overall

Actually, giving it some thought, this might be my favourite PopMart show. The mistakes are either not there or not glaring, songs that would later be dropped are still in the setlist, and overall it was a very strong performance of new and difficult material.

Highlights:
-I Will Follow
-Do You Feel Loved (best performance? - definitely should not have been played dropped!)
-Last Night On Earth
-Until the End of the World/Break On Through (To the Other Side)
-Staring at the Sun (possibly the best performance, even with the false start)
-Daydream Believer
-Miami
-Mysterious Ways

My only (minor) complaints would be that Where the Streets Have No Name and Discothèque weren't as good as usual, and, much more pressingly, no If You Wear That Velvet Dress or Wake Up Dead Man. I was disappointed at their absence.

Seriously, an underrated show. A real gem from PopMart.
