In the intro you can hear a guy in the audience say "this is going to be good", and he's right!!! Very good performance. Loved the opening with "The Ocean" and 11 O'Clock being so early in the set. Bono was really interacting with the crowd very well and it was the first time they were trying some songs out. Very early version of "I Fall Down", with the lyrics not quite set in stone yet! Nice snippet of "Daydream Believer" in Boy/Girl, way before Popmart and the Edge Kareoke was a twinkle in U2's eye!


Not amazing, but it's from 1981, so what do you expect!
Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars


Really good, sounds like they are thoroughly enjoying the show.


Definately one to download if you want to listen to an early show.

Love A Day Without Me, The Ocean, 11 O'Clock and both versions of I Will Follow!
