Performance

For this date we have two known recorders, one which received a 30th Anniversary remaster treatment just last year (comfortzone@dimeadozen&u2torrents).
The first source is the “Sony Handheld Cassetter Recorder,” the second has unknown recording gear, but we do know that it was “recorded from 1st Balcony.” The first one was used for the 30th Anniversary Remaster.
I personally prefer the second source because it is the most clean and complete recording, although the music is a bit distant and the audience somewhat “clappy.”


Sound

The "Sony Handheld Cassetter Recorder" (source 1) has long drop-outs at several points of the recording (as if recording has been stopped or paused) and a “host” who introduces himself with a name that to my non-American ears sounds something like “Chass Jarbone” and he makes some additional comments during the recording. Most likely this is the taper, but it could also be the ‘travelling companion of the taper,’ (see notes).
The 30th Anniversary Remaster does improve the master mainly and significantly for the first three songs of the recording as these were a bit dark sounding on the original master.
As such the recording is much more coherent, but it still suffers from the mentioned drop-outs and comments.

Recording: "RCMH '84 - 30th Anniversary REMASTER" - 3.5 stars

Audience

This was a pretty wild concert from the side of the audience. The show was stopped once in IWF, and twice in Gloria due to both security and fans.

Overall

This is not my favourite show of the tour, but like most other Unforgettable Fire shows, it was again very good performance given the circumstances.
Pimm Jal de la Parra gives a good summary of the show in U2 Live: A Concert Documentry.
