Opening Act(s): Dream Syndicate


Out of Control, Twilight, An Cat Dubh / Into the Heart, Surrender, Two Hearts Beat As One, Seconds, Sunday Bloody Sunday, The Cry, The Electric Co., I Fall Down, October, New Year's Day, Gloria. Encore(s): Party Girl, 11 O'Clock Tick Tock, I Will Follow, 40.


At this concert, the audience sings "Happy Birthday" after "I Will Follow" to Bono (since it is his 23rd birthday). A few fans manage to climb unto the stage and approach Bono with a birthday cake. Also, during The Electric Co., Bono climbs the scaffolding and dangerously jumps off it to a balcony ledge where he continues the song.

Fan Review:

By Terry

This show was great and when it was over, I felt as though I seen one of the best rock shows. I told my friends that we just saw the Beatles of our generation and these guys are going to be around for a long time and looking back I guess I predicted the future because it all came true.

The best part of the show for me was when Bono climbed up a ladder behind the marble pillar that I climbed onto and he gave me the white flag to wave while he walked on the balcony banister singing. Man, that was crazy, if he fell he would have fell some twenty feet and probably broke something. I wished I knew some one who took pictures of that show because it would bring about some awesome memories.
