Energetic! Despite the change in the setlist, which can sometimes throw the band off their game, the performance was very good.
Not fab, but certainly not the worst I've ever heard. The sound level changes at times and I think the audience are a little too loud on the recording, especially the clapping, but it's definately listenable. Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
Fantastic! Bono seems to be having fun with them, especially during the snippet in Bad. They are very vocal, and clapping along with every song.
I downloaded this boot for the interesting setlist, and it didn't dissappoint. I really like ISHFWILF-MLK-UF later in the set, and Bullet is good as an opener.
-Silver and Gold's first outing
-Party Girl (I love the 'stop' and 'start' by the band towards the end of the song).
-The sound, but it's not really THAT bad!
