Pop Giants 1998 [Urban Jungle urban 05/06; 2CD]

Live at the Johannesburg Stadium, Johannesburg, South Africa; March 21, 1998. Very good FM broadcast.

Thanks to Acrobat75 for sharing the show at Dime.

Acrobat75 noted:

The sound is incredibly clear… Quite simply, this bootleg blows away all other recordings of this concert. The only flaw on this recording is a few seconds of static during “Until the End of the World” that were the result of some antenna problems while recording the broadcast.

  8. Never a fan of U2 , they’ve always been bombastic , self righteous and pretentious. Plus Bono’s politics and fake hypocritical humanitarian persona has always rubbed me the wrong way . Just shut up and sing I say . Anyway not for me . Their geezers now anyway.

  9. Bono is an Irish jew . Rumor has it.

  11. Jews are like Coc roaches. You can kill hundreds of them but thousands of them take their place

    By Nelson on Jan 5, 2020

  12. That said Bono being Jewish is news to me . I guess you never know .

    By Nelson on Jan 5, 2020

  13. Nazi anti-semite f**ks are like cockroaches. Kill one, a couple more crawl out of the garbage to take its’ place.
