A fantastic show, with many absolutely classic performances of both new and old material. The band are very energetic and perform for a crowd that's really lifting them up. Bono makes a couple of minor mistakes, mainly get ahead of himself with lyrics, but they do nothing to hurt the show.
The Pop songs are all incredible. This PopMart show also makes the 1980s material feel very fresh and alive - many Pop shows I feel have rather dull versions of I Still Haven't Found, Pride, etc but that's not the case here at all. They're just as exciting and new-sounding as anything. Of course, Where the Streets Have No Name is one 80s song that's never flat and the PopMart renditions might honestly be the best ones of all - if ever Streets was a hymn, it was on this tour, coming out of the noise and spectacle of PopMart as a beam of heaven on Earth, blasting away all the darkness and cynicism.
Very, very good recording. The audience are in the mix but don't overpower it, and everyone comes through nice and clear. Recording: "Pump it up, George" - 5 stars
They are highly enthusiastic, lots of energy and cheering. This is probably the most excited I've heard the crowd during the karaoke part. Usually the audience is a little baffled, these guys sing just as loud as Edge!
One of the must-have U2 shows. The performance is energetic, hard-hitting, and intense. Bono is talkative and makes jokes throughout the show ('it's time to rock' before Edge's karaoke). The sound quality is superb and this recording does an incredible job capturing the spectacle of PopMart. On the whole, this show is simply an instant classic, one to go back to over and over.
- I Will Follow
- New Year's Day
- Pride (I generally prefer Pride later in the set but this version is awesome, and it has a great transition to ISHFWILF)
- Miami (probably the best performance)
- Bullet the Blue Sky
- Please/Streets/Playboy Mansion, as always
- Discothèque/Velvet Dress
- With or Without You (Bono sings 'without you, I'd be nothing' which just kills me)
- Mysterious Ways
- Rain ends the show in a wonderful fashion
- lots of really great snippets in Miami, Discothèque, Bullet, Mysterious Ways, great 'hear me coming' in One

NOTE (from Sean's CDR Trading Site run by Sean Spindler): Live from Leeds, England on August 28th, 1997 at Roundhay Park.
This was broadcast (in error) on French radio in Dec, 1997. This is from a DAT Master.
Quality is absolutely spectacular!!! This bootleg was produced by Jerome Lamboley. He took the French radio broadcast
of this concert, cut the jingles and announcers talking and added the only missing track, "Mysterious Ways"
from an audience recording. Sound quality on the soundboard tracks is nearly perfect.
There is incredible detail in some of the songs. My version originally contained some ticks between some of the tracks,
as well as some strange flaws in numerous tracks. I've removed the ticks, the flaws (mostly empty spaces in a few tracks),
some loud "clapping" in two places in the audience track, and increased the levels about 2dB...If you have "Le Cock Up",
do yourself a favor and GET THIS SET!! You won't be disappointed

"Adam was very persuasive. He had printed cards with 'Adam Clayton, manager of U2', and he was calling people. This was the post-Geldof world in which it was ok to hustle and hassle for a place at the front of the queue."
- Bono on U2's early days
