Comments: The student union of University College Cork organised live music under the name "Downtown Kampus" at the Arcadia Ballroom. This is the first of many times that U2 play one of these gigs, and this time they are low on the bill - though in future they will headline or receive prominent billing as a support act. The sound crew on this evening is led by Joe O'Herlihy, who goes on to become U2's director of sound.

"My mother and father used to dance together in the Crystal Ballroom, where generations of Dubliners would go to for dances."

While the band and crew were working on the Joshua Tree album's mixing, Lillywhite's wife, singer Kirsty MacColl, volunteered to set the running order for the album. The band told her to put "Where the Streets Have No Name" first and "Mothers of the Disappeared" last, with the rest sequenced according to her preference.
