1998-02-11 - Santiago, Chile - Estadio Nacional


Comments: U2's first concert in Chile. Mothers Of The Disappeared was not performed again until the band returned to Chile on 26 February 2006.

U2's tour itinerary as distributed to their crew indicated there would be a second Santiago show at this venue the previous night, 1998-02-10. This second concert never actually happened.

Brilliant performance of the lads. PopMart at his best. Bono's voice is good here, although it cracks sometimes. Look at 'Bad' where he tries his best to carry himself through the song. You can really see him suffering when you watch the video. Luckily the band and the crowd was there to carry him through. The band certainly was on fire that day.


As if it's a TV broadcast, it's decent. No more comment needed I guess.
Recording: "Live In Santiago 1998" - 4.5 stars


Again top notch. Those South-American people are simply magnificent during concerts. They really go nuts! Note the crowd's reaction as Bono takes on the Mothers of The Disappeared on stage. You can really hear the difference: one side's pro-Pinochet(as they're yelling 'Boo!'), other side's (which is a bigger group) clearly against him. Really interesting moment.


If you don't have this one, grab it now. Both the audio AND the video. The concert is even better than the Mexico City one. The performances of 'Bad', 'One' and 'Mothers Of The Disappeared' are the stand-out highlights...can't find no words for it. The energy the band put on that night was really huge.

This one was PopMart's finest hour. Besides the beloved Sarajevo show a must-have bootleg for U2-addicts.

So this was my first concert review, hope you like it!
