Together, but Bono has quite a few slip ups, generally related to where they're at in the song. For example, Ultraviolet has a couple. He seems VERY confused...he's heard the song more times than I have, and it's not even a matter of forgetting lyrics...it's just flat out skipping lines, wrong melodies...its odd.


Not the best of the leg/tour, but it was a speedy upload, and for that I'm thankful!


Not high in the mix, but they're there.


Not too special of a show for me...won't really revisit it at all. Maybe for nostalgic listens of North Star, but otherwise, it's a standard early-leg-3 show.
