Description
PLEASE READ THIS LITTLE INFO BEFORE U CONSIDER DOWNLOADING

At first I didn't want to spread it - not because I'm an asshole with a massive ego ;) but because I find the recording to be not the best overall (see below for further details on that) but maybe only interesting for completists, desperate people who want to have a video recording of this concert after all, and mainly of use for ppl who want to do a multi cam mix if other sources should pop up.

So here are some things that might bother you after downloading:

First off I blame the audience around me ;): I sat rather close to the staircase and in sight for a security guy so I had the hope that once all people (especially those that would make a "wall" between me and security) would stand up at the beginning of the concert, nobody would notice or care whatz going on...

Unfortunately not all people in my block did stand up, and worse: none of the people between me and the security did which left me standing/sitting in clear view for the security which resulted in me trying to film through sitting and standing people and holding the cam a bit down especially during the beginning (Breathe - the first 1-2 mins kinda suck, sorry) and later on during Get On Your Boots and Beautiful Day, too, if I recall correctly.

Fortunately this wasn't the case all the time but especially during the first couple of songs.
Also once it got darker I could film better.

But the one thing that really pissed me off was that people quite often decided to get something to drink or eat during the songs, so at a handful of occassions someone walks through the picture or accidentally pushed me in the back coz they were too stupid to just enjoy the concert. I was like WTF?!


Please note that I didn't use a tripod, so it's a bit shaky at times. If you could bare with my recordings of Gothenburg and Paris, you'll be fine.
To make up for it I can say that I could also manage to get some good/great (still) close ups.

Also a note to everybody who loves the song Stay (Faraway, So Close!): I had a slight fit of coughing during that song (At that point I thought "well, it can't get worse now"), so 5-6 times it's shaky for sure there.

So, TO SUM UP:
- Due to fear of security rather shaky and shitty especially during first 1:30-2 mins of Breathe
- no tripod used, so some shakiness was unavoidable as I had to zoom in for close ups
- little and slight fit of coughing during Stay. Sorry for that :(
- on the pro side: nice close ups, especially of Edge and Bono.
- complete concert (fades during the encore breaks)
- No HD, sorry.

Here are 2 youtube links to show you how the recording is like (on TV it looks way better):

Sound
Internal mics.
Sound's overdriven but listenable imo.
FEEL FREE TO UPGRADE IT WITH ONE OF THE GREAT AUDIOS THAT ARE AROUND.

No HD, sorry.

Note: It looks way better on TV than the screenshots let suggest.
