Very good show! Better than the 6th. Still, a few technical problems in Twilight and a bit more problems in I Will Follow. The energy here is incredible.
If you turn up the volume the boot is quite enjoyable, and it keeps getting better as the show progresses. Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
As good as the European crowds.
First of all, the FM broadcast is NOT from this concert, it is actually from the show next day, so I think this is the first proper review of the show. And what a show! The band feed from the Irish-Bostonian vibe in the house and they gave it all. The main highlight of this boot is the last performance ever of Tomorrow. If you are a Tomorrow "completionist" like me, you must get this. I don't know why it wasn't played regularly. Another excellent performance was Two Hearts, with the Let's Twist Again part extended. 11 O'Clock was excellent as well. I'm a sucker for the Drowning Man snippet and the final solo is amazing. In Surrender Bono invoked the spirit of Michael Jackson and it was great. I liked the Brick/ A Day Without Me combo too. There's an unlisted snippet of Send In The Clowns in Electric Co. Perhaps the only song I can't consider good is Party Girl. They were still playing with it and it's not the version we know.
Funnily enough, Bono did mistakes between songs, like saying "It's great to be back in NY" (WTF?) or introducing NYD as Two Hearts.

This recording was made for me and you (too).
Jimi Hendrix and Sonny and Cher get a shoutout from Bono in this show.
New Year's Day is introduced as two hearts beat as one. (apparently
Bono lost track of the setlist). another sold out U2 show in Boston.
it was a good show despite a few odd moments, plenty of energy and even
some Bono Jackson. hey why not? at this time U2 and Michael Jackson were
the hottest names in rock and pop music (along with Hall and Oates).
this appears to be the full show. all the songs are complete.
most of the encore applause was edited out of the source tape.
just before "I fall down", Bono says "it's great to be back in N.Y." and
is answered with a resounding chorus of boos. (the only round of boos
in this show.) then he follows that by saying "this is where we live,
Boston." that gets the cheering going again. Two sold out shows at the
Orpheum this time, after just one in late 1981.
the U2 mania here was irrreversible by this point and out of control.
next time it was 3 shows at the Worcester Centrum. (and Boston Garden)

"Larry says that he doesn't want to leave the stage just to come back two minutes later, he's a drummer and they are practical, he says it's more efficient to just stay onstage. Edge doesn't care what we do and Adam hasn't even noticed that we've left the stage and me, I'm the singer and I do whatever you want me to, I just want you to love me."
- Bono, Copenhagen, 2001
did you know
The song 'Even Better Than The Real Thing' is about sex on television and how the media uses sex to sell products. In the video the U2ers are inside a shop, as if they were 'for sale'.
