1983-06-17 - Los Angeles, California - Sports Arena


Comments: U2's first headlining performance in an arena. Sunday Bloody Sunday is halted during the drum into while Bono asks the audience to move back. As usual Bono climbs a balcony during The Electric Co., and he is grabbed and chased by numerous fans up there. He is still trying to make his way down to the stage as the band begin I Fall Down, and is forced to jump twenty feet to the floor to escape the chasing fans. The people on the floor try to grab him, and a fight nearly breaks out as he pushes past a man in his rush to return to the stage. Dennis Sheehan comes to his aid and pulls him back up, though both of their clothing is torn. After the concert Bono is lambasted by the band and tour crew for continuing his climbing antics after multiple warnings.
