Performance

Eager young band. Bono’s voice is a little raspy but his enthusiasm makes up for it.

Bono sings “call out in pain” during 11 O'clock, and mentions they felt their last performance in Belfast was subpar. Another Time is excellent, as is The Electric Co. — both classic versions to be sure. I Will Follow seems a tad short but is excellent. Edge’s guitar kicks off A Day Without Me with fire; Bono alters the lyrics and Adam messes around with the bass getting fuzzy. Out of Control ends on a high, again with Bono changing words.


Sound

Excellent sound, audience are present but not too loud. Unfortunately, this source doesn’t have whole show.
Recording: "BBC Northern Ireland - Original broadcast 1981" - 4.5 stars

Audience

Very enthused, chanting eagerly.

Overall

Excellent show but short. Unfortunately this source isn’t the whole thing. The band are passionate and hard-hitting, lots of songs sparkle.

Highlights:
- 11 O’clock Tick Tock
- Another Time, Another Place
- The Cry/The Electric Co.
- I Will Follow
- A Day Without Me
