"Volcano" sounded flat. Should be better with a crowd that's participating. "Every Breaking Wave" still prefer the studio more upbeat version, this version is to melancholy, while the studio version is more upbeat. "California" Sounds great! Best song of the show.
Sound was crisp, quality recording. Recording: Webcast - 4 stars
Audience was lame. I think that's what gave the band problems. Hard to perform with passion without crowd engagement.
They seem to be getting more comfortable with the songs.

"You have no choice of subject matter. You write what's in your heart and on your mind--unless of course it's crap, in which case it means you've thought about it too much."
- Bono in an on-line chat in June of 1999
