Sound Quality:
A+ Audience


I got this from Steve Vahey, I don't know where he got it from, but he has it listed as from a DAT clone source. He has no review, so here is mine.

Notice the date, this is of course the night before the 8/28/93 show that was broadcasted, becoming one of the best sound quality bootlegs ever. The night before was perhaps just as good. The setlist, in my opinion, is a little better too. U2 played a not so common "I Will Follow" with I think the acoustic guitar. It sounds fantastic. Larry also ended Angel of Harlem with "Dirty old Town," which was not done a capela like other performances. The setlist is otherwise similar to the next night. Mr. MacPhisto's phone call tonight is to the Hewson residence; he gets the answering machine and a message from his daughter saying that he won't be allowed home until he takes his horns off. It's pretty funny. Before the confessionals, the crowd breaks out into chanting "40," "We All Live in a Yellow Submarine," and another song I don't know. That's pretty cool. The confessionals are tasteless as usual :). It's overall a pretty standard, but very good, Europe Zooropa show.

The sound quality is excellent. The crowd is heard individually only between songs for the most part, and what you end up with is a great recording that sounds almost like soundboard except for the distant feeling it has because it's recorded in the audience.
