A pretty good recording of a good show from U2. Of course, that is just my opinion.

Had an extra ticket due to a friend not being able to go. There was a glut of extra tickets at the show.
A scalper told me that they couldn't give them away. So I went up to a group of students and did exactly that.
Congrats to Scott who got to see his first U2 show for free. With a $252 ticket at that.

If the tracking is a little off, give me a break. I've been up for 25 hours, and I'm tired.

Dedicated to Richard and Mark who both wanted to go but couldn't, and to Scott who did go.

In my opinion this alternate version is an upgrade to the other version circulating by RCarter.
RCarter did a nice job but my Olympus LS10 recorder seems to stand above the Zoom H2 recorder used by RCarter.
Can not say enough about how wonderful the LS10 is, invest in one if you want to record a show in the future.
I recorded the show on a 4GB SD card and the encore switched the 2GB internal memory.
I used the highest PCM setting for this recording 96,000 Hz 24 bit Stereo @ 4.2 gigs total.
I did use the wind covers for the mic's and have to thank my wife for keeping her noise level at a minimum throughout the show.
I also mounted a hand held camera tripod which screws into the LS10 so there would be no rubbing or banging of the recorder.
For the most part the crowd noise was minimal except for a few outbursts from the guy to my right but that's life.

It was a perfect night for an outdoor show. There was a full blue moon with no wind and the temperature in the 60's.

The show came off really well.  I thought Bono's voice was above average and the band played tight.

JEMS' first night on the 360 tour was a fine one indeed. I was joined by Brother JP (he of San Francisco 12/15/84 fame), a perfect taper companion (and not one to shy away from a little pat-down search), and we got something better than a standard night one set, with true one-off to celebrate Bruce Springsteen's 60th birthday, "Your Blue Room" and some set list rearranging.

This was also the first time I matched our newly modified Nakamichi 300 kit with the Edirol in a stealth situation and I am pleased with the results. We had decent seats for taping vis a vis proximity to the PA and the crowd around us was relatively quiet (the cardioid caps help, too). The only issue with the recording was one I could not avoid: while the mics had wind screens, the wind in the stadium blew the high end around a bit on a very directional PA. The result on the recording is occasions where the high end seems to soften or swirl a touch. Samples provided below in the comments.

I did record the second night but missed a chunk in the middle (never forget to delete last night's files off the flash drive before you go into the stadium!). And it appears we have a stellar document of that one already.

Butterking for JEMS

My last show of this tour so I wanted to be closer. Better sound from the stacks, no EQ adjusted but
crowd noise a little lowder at times.
