1978-04-00 - Dublin, Ireland - Eamon Andrews Studios


Comments: After winning the Harp Lager Talent Contest in March 1978 and receiving the chance to record a demo funded by CBS, U2 play a short studio set on an unknown date in April 1978. Some sources state the songs played were Concentration Cramp, Night Fright, Inside Out, and Hang Up, but as bootlegged demos exist (with no other apparent origin) of the set starting with Tonight, we presently believe the above set is correct and the one including Concentration Cramp is not.
