Comments: A couple of verses of So Cruel are sung as Bad concludes and segues into Bullet The Blue Sky. This is the first live appearance of So Cruel, though it wasn't performed independently until the tour's third leg (and only acoustically by Bono at that stage).

Great sound on the Mixlr...a bit low in volume would be my only comment but this was a bootleg recorded back in the day most likely on a cassette tape so for the time, amazing! Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars

After a DJ set by BP Fallon, the crowd's energy exploded with the opener Zoo Station and went out quietly with the atmospheric Love is Blindness as the closer...the show was flawless from beginning to end. Non-stop Achtung Baby including a bit of the live rarity So Cruel. Ultraviolet was pure raw energy and who wasn't strumming along with The Edge during Until the End of the World and Mysterious Ways. Ooh Love to Love You Baby...you will be dancing around your apartment! Running to Stand Still with a snippet of Hallelujah and Bono on the harmonica at the B-stage and then back down the catwalk into Streets! Did I forget to mention they played Lou Reed's Satellite of Love into Bad? This is the stuff of pure U2 fantasy and I was all in!

Milano, Forum Assago (now Fila Forum)
22 May 1992
"LDB master (14)"
Intro / Zoo station
Even better than the real thing
Until the end of the world
Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Throw your arms around the world
Angel of Harlem
When love comes to town
Satellite of love
Bullet the blue sky
Running to stand still
Where the streets have no name
I still haven't found what I'm looking for
With or without you
Love is blindness
That was the time of U2-mania! Back in mid 80's the band was huge but not THAT huge. Infact, when tickets were released for
the two dates (20 & 21), people started to stay on queue from the night before. For what I recall, the first date was
cancelled due to Bono being sick and the date of 20th was postponed to the 22nd, with Bono apologizing with the audience
since there were people coming all the way from Sicily, travelling over 800 miles to see the first gig!
The show was excellent indeed, and the band in top form! Several cars (Trabant) were hung on the roof, and many maxi screens
placed all around the venue. With a big remote control, Bono was able to show several TV channels, zapping from one to
I taped this show with a Sony DAT recorder that a friend used to borrow me from time to time. I still have the master DAT cassette
and used it to make the transfer to my HD.

May 22, 1992. Milan, Italy. Forum Di Assago. There's a date error on the back cover, it's not 20th, but 22nd.
Excellent ! It's really a very good recording (soundboard?) with a good capture from the audience noise.
This is complete show. This is one of my favorite ZOO TV bootlegs! The participation of the audience is really great (they sing louder than The Edge on the chorus to "The Fly"!), and the band made a good performance. I really recommend this CD. The front cover is not very nice, but you can find a school photo from 1978 in the book and recognize the young Bono and The Edge (I don't know where Adam and Larry are). Mistakes on the titles in the CD include the following: "When Love Comes To Town" is not listed (nor is it indexed) and "So cruel" is listed as being "All I Want Is You".
This is the original pressing on this label.
"Bono was on fire with lyric and song ideas. His singing had reached a whole other level as if some spirit has entered his body pushing him into uncharted falsetto territory."
- Daniel Lanois on recording Achtung Baby

Bono and his wife Ali Hewson own a clothing line named EDUN (spelled Nude backwards) together.
