U2 - Gone - Tempe 9th May 1997 [IEM]

Show notes:
Early Popmart show. Starting to pull things together, but still some mess-ups during the show. Staring at the Sun takes a while to come together, Bono turns into a major asshole during Miami, and the band forgets how to end With or Without You. I get the feeling they couldn't wait to end the show by the end. Nice little soundcheck bonus, with some full songs and warm-ups.

Recording/remaster notes:
Soundcheck was a pretty solid standard Edge feed. Did the usual basic eq/reverb/etc. No static cleanup needed. The show had a decent amount of static and rf noise, especially in the second half of the show. The most interesting version of with or Without You I've heard was unfortunately striken with a good amount of static. Did the best I could to clean it up, but you'll probably notice some glitches. The feed is from the crew feed, so you'll notice crew talk and instruments/vocals switching in the feed.

Extra notes:
This recording was stolen way back in the day in the infamous shower heist, and slowly was traded out from there. A while back it (and later the soundcheck) was torrented, but it ran slow and sounded bad. I'm unsure if it was intentionally traded with the speed/sound issues to preserve its "trade value" (as was done by these lovely thieving traders by some of the European Pop IEMs), or if the source was just a multi-gen analog tape. In either case, this is from a much better source and cleaned up. Enjoy y'all.
