2005-04-01 - Anaheim, California - Arrowhead Pond


Comments: Bono was late to the soundcheck, so for the first couple of takes of Mysterious Ways, his vocals from ZOO TV Sydney are used. He shows up in time for the third take and duets with himself.

It wasn't their best performance. They had a couple of mistakes. Sunday Bloody Sunday didn't start off well, Bono forgot the lyrics of Miracle Drug and their was no keyboard during the intro of City of Blinding Lights. Apart from that they did ok. Nothing too special in their performance.


Sound was really good for a Vertigo tour bootleg. In my opinion it's very well balanced, and good to listen to.
Recording: Audience microphone - 4.5 stars


The audience was ok, they did put up with those little mistakes, and took over some of the singing part.


It's kind of a special show. They made a couple of mistakes because it's an early show of the tour. But they did some special things with the setlist. They started with what would be the second half of the regular set for the rest of the tour. So Sunday Bloody Sunday was second, followed by Bullet The Blue Sky and Running To Stand Still. It worked wel for me, it was something different. Not your typical Vertigo tour show!
Highlights: Love and Peace or Else (opener), I Still Haven't Found.., New Year's Day and Yahweh
