Sparkling and honest performance. The band sounds very fresh and clearly feeling comfortable with the Dutch crowd. De La Parra wrote: "U2 play two of the best shows of the tour so far. The atmosphere is excellent and all songs are played with full conviction, with extra lines and improvisations added to several songs."


Unknown analogue generation (UAG). Running speed OK and consistent.
Dynamics of the recording are on the left channel for the most part, while the right is mostly hiss and noise. Still, instruments and Bono are quite clear although a bit distant with low frequencies (e.g. bass) somewhat distorted.

Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars


The Dutch audience never played hard-to-get with U2. Already with the first notes of 11 O'Clock Tick Tock the room ignites and the celebration continues untill long after the band has left the stage with “40.”


Recording quality barely 3 stars, but the excellent performance and the joyful crowd will surely win you over.
