The end of the tour and it realy shows. Bono's voice is extremely strained and the whole performance is under-par. However, I do think the strained voice lends itself to a couple of songs quite well. I do like Staring At The Sun and Discotheque and I think it's a decent performance of Last Night On Earth. The Seemingly Edge and Bono only version of "40" is outstanding. I've never heard them play it like that before and I think it's lovely.


I listened to 2 different recordings of this boot, the FLAC that was originally on the show page and the mp3 recording placed on the BRT thread. I had problems with both, even though both were soundboard recordings. During the FLAC one I found there was a bit of skipping during UTEOTW and ISHFWILF and with the mp3 recording, I felt the quality came and went and wasn't consistent enough. Therefore I've given less than a 5 star.


Obviously up for a U2 gig, as any audience would be.


Not a boot I would recommend to anyone looking for a really good Popmart performance, but downloadable for the performance of "40" none the less.

Highlights: Discotheque, Last Night On Earth, Staring At The Sun and "40".

Lowlights: Bono's strained voice and tired performance.
