Excellent show! One can say this was the proper debut of the JT tour, since Bono's voice was not present in Tempe


The Mark Anderson source is excellent for the era. Check the info file for a cool story on how he obtained such good sound.
Recording: "Mark Anderson Source (Incomplete)" - 4.5 stars


Very good, shouting, singing and clapping, but Bono was not happy with the singing of the public in People Get Ready and jokes: "Is this not America? I thought this was a tradition for Americans"


If the new source were complete, I'd give it 5 stars. It is missing MLK, TUF, People Get Ready and 40 (the taper left an extra tape in the car!). No biggie, since I put the old source for those songs.
About the show: a truly great JT show, with a shaken setlist: IWF and Gloria in the same concert, Lucille (rarely played), WOWY after October, ISHFWILF without any speech by Bono, TUF at the encore, etc. Bono "dedicates" Pride to Gov. Mecham who had cancelled MLK's day (and later he was impeached)
Highlights: Practically all songs, but specially: Gloria, RTSS, Bad, WOWY (superb 2nd performance ever, with Bono showing off his vocal skills, love it) and Lucille.
I only wish they had played something else other than Maggie's Farm that day.
