"U2 simply put on the best live performance I have ever seen. The stage setup, the setlist, and the enthusiasm from the band resulted in an unbelievable show at the Garden."

Last week we've added a 4,5 star matrix recording to this show which highlights even more how special this show was. This show had an incredible setlist (with 11 O'Clock Tick Tock, the 1969 snippet, and Stuck In A Moment performed together with Daniel Lanois), a lot of energy, a great crowd and now also an amazing recording.
Fantastic show, really recommended if you want to hear a fresh, pre-9/11 US Elevation show that portraits a band just having fun with a great setlist.
Also, one of the very few times where Out Of Control AND 11 O'Clock Tick Tock appear together in the same setlist since the 80s... OOC into 11 O'Clock into SBS feels like an early years revival interlude
"Adam probably felt a little bit like the other three had lost it. Suddenly, from being in a rock 'n' roll band, he's with a bunch of guys who have got religion and are carrying Bibles in their luggage and occasionally getting together for a meeting to pray."

The PopMart Tour (1997-1998) cost U2 $214,000 per day, even when they were not performing a show.
