Very good performance of the band and Bono was very talkative.


Messing Around With Champagne is the definite version of this show, IMO. Great sound. The only problem is that The Ocean is missing there, so you can grab it from the other source. Also, during Into The Heart there's a very annoying DJ announcement.
Recording: "Messing Around With Champagne" - 4.5 stars

Excellent Boy bootleg with one of the best sounds available. The previous source was incomplete, but now we have the complete encore. An early version of I Fall Down (still called When I Fall Down, diff. intro and lyrics) is played and it sounds very good. 11 O'Clock is a real treat, as usual. Boy/Girl had the first snippet of Let's Twist Again ever! The Electric Co. had a different snippet too and it is also played very good. At the break, Bono tries to open a bottle of champagne, but doesn't know how. That was very funny. He also thanked promoter Barry Fey, who later took the band to Red Rocks. The now recovered encore is great too. Highly recommended!
