This was broadcast on a television show, and the band is ready to perform. Bono is full of energy and the other members are on-point with all of the songs avaliable. There's not to much to say about the performance, other then that it's definitely up to par with what we'd expect from early U2!


This rating is for the "Boy Brussels" recording. In my opinion, it's actually better than the 2017 recording as that rebroadcast doesn't mix all of the instruments and vocals together evenly. The "Boy Brussels" sound is very enjoyable and quite clear, it's certainly better than some other Boy Tour shows. Overall, both are listenable, but I'd recommend the "Boy Brussels" recording.
Recording: "Boy Brussels" - 3.5 stars


The audience is certainly there and cheers quite enthusiastically after every song. Bono talks with them before almost every song. The crowd was happy to be there and they were engaged with the performance!


The highlights are Stories For Boys (outstanding performance), 11 O'Clock Tick Tock, and Another Time, Another Place. Even though the setlist is incomplete, that doesn't stop this show from being an awesome glimpse into early U2! Definitely recommend for any U2 fan!
