2001-08-25 - Slane, Ireland - Slane Castle


setlist

Comments: This concert features the first performance of A Sort Of Homecoming since 27 June 1987 and it is somewhat shambolic, with Bono struggling to remember the lyrics. This show is the first time U2 has played Slane since opening for Thin Lizzy in 1981; in honour of Thin Lizzy, U2 play a brief cover of Dancing In The Moonlight.
