It's a good show. Bono is talkative and having fun. The band seem to be doing very well. No mistakes I could notice, even though they've just gotten into the tour.
Mostly pretty good. It's a bit rough during Streets, New Year's Day, October, parts of Bad, and parts of In God's Country. Recording: Audience microphone - 2.5 stars
The audience are having a good time, and at times they are actually a little annoying because it's an audience bootleg and their noise and talking overpowers the band.
Early in the tour, a strange setlist order, no "40" closer... It's worth adding to your collection, and it's quite a good show. In God's Country sounds rather odd, which is partially I believe do to the sound quality but also partially the way it's played. A fan plays guitar on People Get Ready.
However, there are problems. The sound quality fluctuates quite a bit at points and can be quite noticeably different between songs. Bullet the Blue Sky, which isn't one of the best performances of this song, has a skip in it, and Trip Through Your Wires is cut off shortly before it's over. I think Bad may also be cut.
-A Sort of Homecoming
-With or Without You (though the sound isn't great)
-The unusual setlist order
-The cuts in Bullet and especially Trip Through Your Wires
-The variation in sound quality between and sometimes during tracks is a distraction but isn't a major issue

Can we ask you to write a short review after you have listened?.
"He made a point that within the gay community, people were excited about the fact that we were the first band to deal with sex outside of machismo." - Bono speaking about an interview with Adam Block

The band considered releasing The Joshua Tree as a double-album that would have included B-sides. Bono was the most vocal proponent of the idea, whereas The Edge argued for the 11-track version that was ultimately released.
