Band really in top form. From pure energetic songs to more intimate songs, they nailed them.
Love On The Tracks is a great improvement over the old source. At best 4 stars, but usually staying in the 3.5 stars rating. Totally enjoyable. Recording: "Love On The Tracks" - 3.5 stars
For me, the best show in the European Vertigo leg and a great setlist. This show was Show Of The Month for a reason. At the time, it was the longest U2 show (those were the days!). For the 3rd show in Dublin, the band had something really special: from the first Vertigo, AABOY and an excellent Gloria (only time in Europe), the band conquered the crowd. We also had the last An Cat Dubh/ITH. Nothing great (Bono, never talk during Edge and Adam moment in ITH), but this song is always welcomed.
Setlist is shaken again with OOC followed by an early Bad. Where else you'll hear Dirty Old Town in Bad? The crowd went nuts. This is the absolute peak of the show.
For a change, Bono left the tired old "Edge is from the future" jokes and told us more about Chris Nolan (not the director), the inspiration for Miracle Drug. Great run of 3 HTDAAB songs.
I'm not a fan of the political segment of Vertigo and maybe I'll never be, so let's skip that part. RTSS is dedicated to Aung San Suu Kyi, so there's a snippet of Walk On (not a big deal).
After the ZooTV and the 2nd Vertigo, you think it's over, but they play Yahweh (I love it!) and 40 to close a great show.

"It's very much a guitar record. Vertigo, Love and Peace, City of Blinding Lights, All Because of You, all pretty up, rocky tunes. A lot of them are a kick-back to our very early days, so it's like with each year we have gathered a little bit more and this is what we are now."
