Performance notes: This show took place on an indeterminate date in late December 1977, back when the band still included Dik Evans, The Edge's brother, and was called The Hype. The band got drunk before the show, leading to a rough performance. At one point, Bono calls out for a cover of the Rolling Stones' Jumpin' Jack Flash; Dik Evans mixes up Stones songs and begins playing Brown Sugar instead. The band also performed an Eagles cover, though the specific song is unknown. No other setlist details are known. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

what they said
"I was reminded of something I had long ago forgotten - that I had written the lyrics for this song in a small village in northern Ethiopia on a scrap of paper, an Air India sick bag, I think. And there it was, nearly twenty years later, coming back to Africa, all the stuff about parched lands and deserts making sense for the first time. The hairs just stood up on the back of my neck. I could barely sing the song. And it was like that every night of the tour."
- Bono on Where The Streets Have No Name during the Vertigo tour
