GET IT. The 30th is incredible. The final encore of 11OTT/WOWY is well worth it too.

I rank the four Point Depot shows as follows:
1. 26th
2. 30th
-- noticeable gap here --
3. 27th
4. 31st

1 and 2 are almost equal, as are 3 and 4. All four are four of U2's best gigs ever, and the quality on each is perfect, so get them all. I promise you won't be disappointed.

God A Sort of Homecoming is such a good song. I don't know how I forget that sometimes

Point Depot is where that whole Dream it all up business occurred right?

I know I downloaded one of these shows too before the first iPod crash, but I'm not sure which. odds are it was the one they played TUF at

Why did I think Point Depot was in Australia

And why did they do all that dream it up stuff if there were still four more shows on the tour ? Screw you Stockholm, we're only doing these shows cause we gotta?

I suppose some other stupid channel will pick it up...
Aforementioned daft git on LJ posted some news story that it has been suddenly cut. 10 informed the producers that the "concept" will in some way return, but no earlier than 2010. And my skeptical self says that's just to shut a few people up before it's queitly dropped altogether, as with so many other shows in the past cancelled "to return in a new guise at an indefinite point".

Bono, Calm down! IF you don't breath, you're not going to be able to clearly communicate to the people what you are trying to say. *regarding the intro to Bad *

It'd agree with that.

The 31st is overrated, IMO.

Yes, the "dream it all up again" speech is on the 30th, before Love Rescue Me. I think it was made more for the benefit of the home crowd than anything else.

As for the four shows after Dublin in Rotterdam, they were never meant to happen. The show on 18/12/89 in Amsterdam was cut prematurely short when Bono's voice failed, and the two shows scheduled for the 19th and 20th were accordingly postponed. The four Rotterdam gigs in January 1990 took the place of the Amsterdam shows - four rather than two due to the venue being smaller.
