Great show considering they were playing in front of 65,000 people with a stage set built for a 20,000 seat arena.


Not bad considering it's from 25 years ago. Worth a listen if you were at this show.
Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars


The crowd was hyped up for this show. It's the first time U2 headlined a stadium.


Like I said, worth a listen if you attended this show.
