Comments: The atmosphere in the venue is hostile, and Bono's attempts to connect with and pacify the crowd do not prove successful. During the first verse of Pride, Bono stops the song to try to talk to the crowd more as fights continue. He then restarts the song. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

*ORIGINAL NOTES ("T"):
"The first of two Unforgettable Fire concerts at London's Brixton
Academy. Note the rare performance of "Indian Summer Sky". Before
A Sort of Homecoming, Bono talks about being nervous about
performing in such a big city. Sounds strange coming from the same
man who now refers to heads of state by their first names."
"This recording was made by Chris Sheppard using a Sony Walkman
recorder. The overall sound is surprisingly good. While a bit
distant at times, both the vocals and music come through clearly.
Audience noise is minor, but a few individual voices are audible on
occasion. There are a few brief, shaky periods near the end of
Sunday Bloody Sunday that may have resulted from the recorder being
moved or a loose wire."

"We didn't do the hit because I'd gone AWOL to try and find a television moment and forgot about the song. The band were very, very upset - they nearly fired me."
- Bono on playing an extended version of Bad at Live Aid, resulting in the fact that Pride was not performed

The name "Bono" comes from a hearing aid shop in Dublin that was named "Bona Vox" which is latin for "good voice".
