Comments: Dress rehearsal before the third leg of the Zoo TV - $15 admission, proceeds donated to 5 charities. Happy Birthday was sung for Edge, who turned 31 the next day. Sunday Bloody Sunday is performed for the first time since the end of the Joshua Tree Tour on 20 December 1987. New Year's Day is performed for the first time since the end of the Lovetown Tour on 10 January 1990. Acrobat was rehearsed in closed rehearsals in the days before this show, but it was never played at a public concert. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

Very relaxed performance, changes in some lyrics but that sounds good sometimes... even some mistakes add something in the performances... The Fly's start sounds like some versions on Vertigo Tour and this was interesting.
Dress rehearsal starts with powerful version of Sunday Bloody Sunday, and Pride was played 2 times, I wish instead Pride in second slot, they played Acrobat into Zoo Station like a day before.
Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses starts full band, but Bono breaks the performance and starts to play acoustically... Edge was a bit lost in Van Diemen's Land, but the song was played... good!
Good version of Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World, in tribute to Edge's birthday... good acoustic set, but some problems in sound in When Love Comes to Town (Edge sounds excited and happy when he sang BB King's part) and also strong performance in Bullet the Blue Sky
The encore was great too, Edge was rocking at solo in Love is Blindness, but song was cut before he finish
Can't see major problems on record, to me sounds like 3 stars, even 3,5 if the bootleg didn't have some issues during acoustic set, some cuts between tracks too, but didn't interfer hardly on the listen Recording: Audience microphone - 2 stars
This part is only rated, not commented on
Relaxed performance, but I really apreciate this bootleg.. could be even better if some acoustic songs didn't have issues in sound and played Acrobat instead first Pride.
Highlights: Sunday Bloody Sunday, Zoo Station, One, Until the end of the World, Tryin' to Throw Your Arms Around the World (excellent), All I Want is You, Bullet the Blue Sky, and With or Without You

"All of this is really window dressing, people actually come along to see us and to hear the tunes. That's the truth. I think the rest of it is trying to make fun of playing in a very large space."
