Performance

This part is only rated, not commented on

Sound

One of the best in the "Under Australian Skies" leg
Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars

Audience

2nd time only in the continent and the crowd gave an incredible welcome to the band

Overall

A very inspired show during weird circumstances. Bono had forgotten his guitar riffs and he had to buy his own albums to remember them! Apparently the venue was really crappy. A "hay barn", as Bono calls it, saying that "this band and this crowd are much better than this place".
But even with all these adversities, the show is great. A lot of improvisation and spontaneity, Two Hearts clocks at 7 minutes! Many improvised lines, snippets. You have to listen to it. Surrender had a In The Midnight Hour snippet and NYD had the "maybe the time is right" part. There was a mic malfunction during that song, and Bono thanks his technician saying "Steve is the only good thing from Liverpool"
More improvisation in 11 O'Clock and the second Pride ever fired up the crowd. Really good bootleg that you should have for very unique performances.
