It's hard to explain how exciting a live U2 show was during this period of their career. They were old enough to have become experienced performers, but young and energetic enough to put on a killer show.


This is a pretty good recording for the era. While the noise from the fans can be intrusive at times, it gives a good feeling for what it was like to be there.
Recording: Audience microphone - 3.5 stars


The New Haven Coliseum (which has since been torn down) held about 11,000 people. However, only about 6,000 attended this show. It wasn't unusual to have smaller bands play here, which U2 was at the time, so the arena had a large black curtain that they could draw around the upper reaches of the coliseum to hide the empty seats. Despite the relatively small crowd, the audience was as loud as any I've heard.


I've been to about 100 concerts. This show is in my top five, not just for the performance, but because it gave me the chance to see my favorite band on tour for my favorite album of theirs.
