Comments: Live debuts of MLK, Bad, and Indian Summer Sky. This is the second of only two Unforgettable Fire Tour shows to be opened by a song from The Unforgettable Fire (the first was 17 September 1984, Melbourne, when Wire opened). At the end of Indian Summer Sky, Bono loses his cool with someone in the crowd causing trouble.

Performance

The band are doing a good show, but nothing phenomenal. It seems like Bono is stumbling with some of the lyrics.

The setlist has an unusual order. The show opens with MLK and segues into a really good performance of The Unforgettable Fire. Bad was just a bit 'off' throughout. Indian Summer Sky gets played and is done very well. Bono improvises some lines in I Will Follow.


Sound

The sound isn't too bad, but it's certainly not great. There's some echo to the recording, and the band seem a little distant. Listenable, but having just heard a much better audience boot before I put on this show, it certainly leaves much to be desired. Some songs are worse off than others. The sound cuts out entirely for a second in Gloria.
Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars

Audience

Mostly good. They cheer and chant enthusiastically during Sunday Bloody Sunday and sing loudly with New Year's Day. They keep up the refrain of "40" for quite a while.

Someone in the audience is causing trouble and between Indian Summer Sky and October, Bono calls them out, shouting 'We don't have trouble at U2 concerts, ever!'


Overall

The setlist is kind of short. There's an annoying break between several tracks. It's a good enough performance but the sound isn't very good and there's a bit of trouble with the audience.

The only real reason not to pass this show up is for its rare performance of Indian Summer Sky. If you're not a big fan of that song (and how could you not be a fan of that song?!) you can easily pass on downloading this show.

Highlights:
- The Unforgettable Fire
