Good performance, but it's very average for the ZooTV Tour, nothing really passionate or spectacular.
Edge makes a few little mistakes early in New Year's Day.
New Year's Day is pretty long and has a strange sound, which makes it quite an interesting performance.
Bono starts Tryin' to Throw Your Arms Around the World with the 'sunrise like a nosebleed' verse and seems to stumble over some of the lyrics later on in it.
With or Without You is also played with a rather odd sound, and Bono slightly changes some of the lyrics and the tempo near the end.
Love Is Blindness is played extremely well. Definitely a Top Five performance more me, better than the one at Stockholm.
Good sound, not great. Usually loud and clear but flickers and fades here and there. Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
Good audience, chatter gets in the way of the show a few times.
As I said, it's a bog-standard ZooTV concert. It's good, but nothing special, really. You could probably pass it over, unless you're a ZooTV superfan or completist, or, like me, like to collect U2 shows that are odd for some reason or another. This show has plenty of oddities: the only (to my knowledge...) show U2 have played in my current home state of Alabama, as well as some rather odd-sounding and therefore interesting performances of several songs.
-One, with My Girl instead of Unchained Melody
-Stand By Me (good performance but not great, but nice to see it in the set)
-Whiskey in the Jar (same reason)
-New Year's Day (odd, rather heavy sound makes it quite neat)
-With or Without You
-Love Is Blindness (extremely well done)

Can we ask you to write a short review after you have listened?.
"I thought 'pop' was a term of abuse, it seemed sort of insulting and lightweight. I didn't realise how cool it was. Because some of the best music does have a lightweight quality, it has a kind of oxygen in it, which is not to say it's emotionally shallow. We've had to get the brightly coloured wrapping paper right, because what's underneath is not so sweet."
- Bono describing the difference between the "surface" of the songs to "what lies beneath".
