The band are full of fire. The music is energetic, Bono's voice is really good. He's quite talkative. The show has a nice sort of 'chummy' feel to it.


The sound is loud and clear, but there is some background hiss and crackle. The sound cuts out in part of 11 O'Clock Tick Tock and Another Time, Another Place.
Recording: Soundboard - 4 stars


They're pretty good. Twilight seems to get a lot of cheers.


The show page lists The Ocean as the opening song but it's not in the boot. The sound cuts out for a second during some songs.

Overall it's a very good Boy bootleg. The show is strong and the sound is quite good, especially considering it's a 1981 bootleg.

- 11 O'Clock Tick Tock (pretty much always a highlight, isn't it?)
- An Cat Dubh/Into the Heart
- Another Time, Another Place
- The Electric Co.
