Show starts strong with new material, 4 new songs decently played, in Magnificent, like previous performance, Bono sings opera before Edge's solo.
Bono changes lyrics of some songs (mistakes but sounds good at some points), show keeps strong with good crowd in Beautiful Day and I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, great performance of Desire (Michael Jackson was passed away, so still snippets of his songs)... Electrical Storm was played and I like the performance, Unknown Caller sounds great and fresh, like The Unforgettable Fire, was beggining of the tour, this song wasn't played since Lovetown, and many fans were happy with this performances on first legs of 360
Crazy Tonight sounds good with remix and was fun moment, even Walk On sounded good at this concert (I really deslike 360 versions), Streets amazing like always (specially because crowd's singing) and great encore (So Cruel snippeted and not listed on With or Without You, great Ultraviolet and a still not perfect, but a Moment of Surrender played better than the 3 previous concerts)
This part is only rated, not commented on Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
Italian crowd are always amazing
Good concert, band still experimenting some songs, but fresh tour and some great performance and moments.
Highlights: Magnificent, Desire (snippets), Electrical Storm, The Unforgettable Fire, Crazy Tonight, Walk On (surprisingly on highlights), and Ultraviolet, special mention also for a not listed snippet of So Cruel in With or Without You

Thanks to MLK for his suggestion (and for loaning his backup mics and battery box), I have located myself in a central position on the left side of the stage about 25 m from it with the mic mounted on glasses
I think it was a good choice because I always had a minimum 1-2 m distance from other fans and this had a positive effect on the quality of the recording
The quality of the sound is very good and I am very proud of this recording
What about the show?
It was my sixth U2 concert in 24 years (Milan 1985 the first one, and the first U2 show in Italy!) and the first in 12 years (Reggio Emilia 1997 the last one)
Extremely good performance
Personal highlights (a very difficult choice): Breathe, Magnificent, Desire, Unknown Caller, The Unforgettable Fire, Walk On
- The total running time of the recording was 2:14:57; I have cut the last 40 useless seconds reducing the master to 2:14:15
- I have amplified the whole recording (+4.0 dB) and faded-out the last 10 secs
- A possible microgap could have been generated by the recorder since Edirol R-09 do not support track longer than 2 GB.
For this reason I have manually split the recording at the beginning of IGCIIDGCT (I have used the very same point to split tracks 14 and 15).
So, if you burn to audio CD, I recommend also to use this point to split CD1 and CD2 (CD1: 1-14; CD2: 15-26)
Please do not sell nor convert to mp3 for distribution (mp3 only for personal use!)
Feel free to share in the way you prefer, but please share this fileset as originally torrented (so preserve file integrity!)

''When we were making our third record, the War LP, we were being thrown out of the studio by the studio manager because we had overrun or something and we had one more song to do. We wrote this song in about ten minutes, we recorded it in about ten minutes, we mixed it in about ten minutes and we played it, then, for another ten minutes and that's nothing to do with why it's called '40'.''

'Exit' was worked up and recorded on the very last day of recording The Joshua Tree.
