1987-03-27 - Los Angeles, California - Liquor Store Rooftop


Performance notes: U2 film a music video for Where The Streets Have No Name. When the video shoot is publicised on radio, large crowds gather on surrounding streets and block traffic. The band first perform Where The Streets Have No Name with backing tapes, but its subsequent three performances as well as the other songs are fully live. Eventually, the local police shut down the video shoot but more than enough footage is captured for the music video.

They were filming the video of Where The Streets Have No Name...4 takes of Where The Streets Have No Name (the first one is 100% studio version, other 3 were live), and impromptu perfomances of other songs... this is interesting because it's the only time U2 played Where The Streets Have No Name so similar than album version

Nobody talks about this, but very good version of In God's Country
