    Comments on this show
    The incident in Stockholm in 2015 which led to a show to be postponed was not on its own in U2's history. Something similar happened in 1989 in Sydney, where before the show, the venue was evacuated due to a bomb threat. Thankfully, no bomb was found and the band were able to play a full concert. During the show, Bono made multiple jokes about the incident. It's a great example of the band turning a show on the verge of disaster into an epic performance. Hawkmoon 269, Desire with the So You Want To Be A Rock N' Roll Star snippet, and New Year's Day with the great Oh Maybe The Time Is Right part. This is also the only full tour concert since 1987 to not feature Where The Streets Have No Name in the setlist. What more reasons could we give you to listen to this show?

    We encourage you to listen to this show this month and write your own review, the more, the better. Enjoy!

  2. berlin wall is coming down!
  3. Possibly one of my favorite shows of Lovetown, even favorite in general. Some of my favorite versions of Desire, Watchtower, Hawkmoon, WLCTT, this whole show is amazing! Definitely recommend this show to those who haven't heard it yet, even if the sound quality isn't the best (and no Streets ). It still holds up.
  4. The first time I listened to this show I didn't even notice Streets wasn't played. It is that good.
  5. Amazing show , like almost this tour
  6. This has got to be the best version of Knockin' on Heaven's Door that I've ever heard.
  7. Still my favourite tour, different set every night !
    Hawkmoon is one of the best songs played live.
  8. One of the great shows from their greatest ever tour
  9. i like the different set every night, same as JT Tour '87
  10. TOP SHOW.
