Comments :

I just watched the complete DVD, and I hate to say this, but this is not the complete San Francisco show.

The first two songs, C'Mon Everybody and Pride, and Sun City at the end are from San Francisco,
but the rest of the tape is from a different show (maybe Chicago?).

The next two songs after Pride should have been New year's day and Sunday Bloody Sunday, but they're missing here.
Instead, the next U2 number (after Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" inexplicably appears in the middle of U2's set) is Maggie's Farm.

Both Bono and Larry are wearing different shirts than what they were wearing during the first two songs.
I sat in the tenth row for this gig and definitely don't remember seeing Bono and Larry doing costume changes halfway through their set.

Also, during Maggie's Farm, Bono stands on a monitor wearing a blindfold... he didn't do that in SF, as far as I recall.

There is also a reel-to-reel tape recorder visible behind Edge in the non-SF clips, while it is not visible in the three SF songs.

However, Sun City is from the SF show. One can tell by Bono saying "come on SF" at the beginning of the song,
and by the fact that he is wearing the same leather Daniel Boone shirt he wears in the first two songs of the DVD.

In addition, the clips of Sting doing Roxanne and Message In A Bottle show him playing with Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland.
I definitely would have remembered a Police reunion if it happened in SF, but it didn't. Sting played a slow version of Message In A Bottle
in SF, if I remember correctly, not the fast version shown here.

Finally, the clip of I Shall Be Released with everyone onstage at the end showed Bob Geldof, Joni Mitchell and Don Henley (?)
among the many performers. Again, I don't remember seeing them at the SF show, and I think I would've noticed if they were there.

Besides, I don't remember them doing I Shall Be Released at the end anyway, it was Sun City that ended the show.
