This show is a kind of tribute to Michael Hutchence... Bono sounds emotional and great, show is full of details... caused by snippets and also Bono's emotional voice sounds in some points.. an excellent Gone is the first example of this.
I think Zooropa is a snippet not listed in Even Better Than The Real Thing... Last Night On Earth and Until The End Of The World sounds strong
Classics part is ok, Waltzing Matilda was snippeted into I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For and sounds good and Bono use his falseto in the song... sounds good... All I Want Is You is also ok and Staring Of The Sun is one of the best acoustic versions with Bono doing a MLK snippet with a singing similar of Chris Martin's singing (and this was in 1998!!!) and of course, Edge also shine in Sunday Bloody Sunday
The final part of main set was also a strong sequence with Bullet, Please and Streets played well... and great encore with great versions of Discotheque, Mysterious Ways, With Or Without You and even One, sounds really, really good for a PopMart version
Both great sources... soundboard isn't good as Miami soundboard, but still 4,5 stars... audience sounds 4, if you can... download both and judge yourself to choose your definitive source Recording: Soundboard - 5 stars
We can't hear them in soundboard, but in audience recording they sounds good
An inspired concert, a must have, maybe the best PopMart show!!
Highlights: Gone (excellent), I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, All I Want Is You, Staring At The Sun (excellent), Discotheque (excellent), With Or Without You, Mysterious Ways (excellent) and One (surprisingly excellent)

This is an excellent soundboard of a good Popmart show. My guess is this is a pre-ALD or house feed that was tapped for recording. There are
no unnecessary edits, fades, cuts, or missing songs in this show. It is exactly the same version I received. The first leg issues are clearly behind
the band at this point and they put on an excellent show. The stadiums were pretty much half-full for these shows but the band is in good form.
Bono is clearly emotional after the death of Michael Hutchence referencing him with several snippets in this show. This will most likely be
our last soundboard or IEM release from our extensive vault for the significant future. If someone produces more unreleased soundboards
that we do not have we may reconsider and upload something.
Dedicated to the 2005/2006 crew: NS, JPS, MB, AE, and LL. Also special thanks to "the Bono Box".
Please do not sell this recording. I don’t think it requires any matrixing or remastering. If you feel it does, or you want it in MP3,
please only do it for your own personal use. Let’s try to keep the lineage on this one clean and not upload an MP3 version or 5 different
remasters and matrixes.

"The desert was immensely inspirational to us as a mental image for this record. Most people would take the desert on face value and think it's some kind of barren place, which of course is true. But in the right frame of mind, it's also a very positive image, because you can actually do something with blank canvas, which is effectively what the desert is."
- Adam Clayton on the Joshua Tree

The inspiration for the song Lemon was Bono seeing his mother in some old movies wearing a dress with a yellow tint.
