1) Like my Foxboro DVD, this again is not the whole show. I have so much respect for you folks who can stand there and shoot an entire show non-stop. I just can't do it. I try to catch enough to remember it by, but also want to enjoy the experience in the moment (especially when it's a $250 moment, lol). Running time on the DVD is about an hour and 10 minutes, with footage captured from every song. The Unforgettable Fire and Moment of Surrender are the two songs I recorded in their entirety.
a)Seeing the show from just outside the Claw instead of in the inner circle by the stage. Inner circle was amazing, but there was apparently LOTS of stuff going on over my head at the show in MA that I had NO clue about. Those big orange buttons lined up at the top of each leg of the Claw were actually lights? News to me! LOL. Definitely worth seeing the show more than once from various angles to give you the big picture.
b) And Bono's laser jacket! Wow! He wore the same jacket in MA, but I think it was broken that night; while it was lit with red lights, never saw any laserbeams shooting out from it.
c) Bono pointing out the full moon overhead during "Stand By Me" (I'm a big astronomy buff, so I knew it was going to be full that night, and had actually been watching for it to rise over the stadium stands behind me all through Muse's set. To have Bono point it out as well made me go "YEAH!"
And a few things missed live that I noticed during editing:
A) Bono losing his place in the song at the end of "In a Little While";
b) the shoutout to Edge's brother Dik just before Unforgettable Fire, and the guitar "gluunk!" that followed. Was that just an accidental "gluunk!" or a deliberate reference to how the band sounded while Dik was still with them? LOL.
And c) the computerized voice that prattled on and on from the flashing video screen before Ultraviolet. Had a hard time hearing what it was saying there in the stadium; it was clear enough on the video for me to be able to google it and find out what it was from. For anyone who cares and wants to follow along in the DVD, it was exerpts from "Funeral Blues", by W.H. Auden:
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone.
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever, I was wrong.
The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun.
2) Audio issues again, just like in Foxboro. Some distortion in some of the low frequencies on some of the songs, but on the whole, not too bad.
Okay, that's it. Again, sorry it's not the entire show, but I hope you enjoy what there is of it. Hopefully, a complete shoot may still materialize from someone else in the future.
Feel free to share this; any sellers will be tarred and feathered and/or drawn and quartered. My choice.

IMHO, best show of the tour so far...just went to 4 shows in a week, and this one blew them all away! What a crowd!
I had a great spot on the floor, virtually no crowd noise on this recording...a little bassy at times, but very clear. I wanted to try and EQ this because I think it has "potential" but I am sharing the file as is because I would love for someone who REALLY knows what they are doing to give this a crack at a Remaster....I don't want a bunch of different versions floating around, but if someone wants to give it a go and send me a sample for approval to share, by all means have at it. There is a small gap at the end of Crazy Tonight for a disc swap(extremely fast if I do say so myself)...I did not want to record in MONO so I had to do it, didn't miss anything really.
My only two requests are 1)please don't share this on any other tracker, I will upload to Dime and TTD, need to keep my ratios up & 2)Don't sell:)
I hope you all enjoy the secret encore as much as I do, my brother n law has got some pipes! Thanks to Bill and Larry for clapper control.

did you know
The band considered releasing The Joshua Tree as a double-album that would have included B-sides. Bono was the most vocal proponent of the idea, whereas The Edge argued for the 11-track version that was ultimately released.
