Comments: After the show, U2 signed their first contract with Island Records. The performance of Cartoon World at this show is included on the Boy remaster's bonus disc. A bootleg recording of the full main set exists. A Hot Press review notes that there was a "stinging encore", The Electric Co., which is possibly the first performance of that song.

Great early performance, sometimes hard to tell what Bono says but some songs are very easy to recognise and sing along to. Silver Lining is an early version of 11 O'clock Tick Tock and Trevor is an early version of Touch. Very cool and historical moment for U2.
Amazing sound!!! For a radio recording in 1980 its perfect. Slightly hidden but I'm not complaining, better than the remastered versions on iTunes!
Can't hear them...except when one of them has a right go at someone, swearing and stuff, quite comic but I don't know what he is on about! And then Bono sings.."Thank you, don't mension it", its very funny!
Very iconic, historical, enjoyable, interesting, cool.
Highlights: All of the songs I didn't know that existed, most of them!
Bono says "things will not be the same in this city for us", he was right!

"Bad was something we had done with Brian (Eno) as a sort of 'impro' piece, and he wouldn't let us replay it or change anything, so the improvisation stands pretty much as is."
