Very energetic set. This is were U2 were rising to live fame and just fame in general. It was a very good show, no doubt.


Alright sound. I could hear it. Problem in the first 2 songs, there was like a radio screech going on which was irritating. It was 4 star for the rest of the show but because of that high-pitched screech, nope.
Recording: "How Long To Sing This Song" - 3.5 stars


I've never understood the audiences in Chicago, they are never 5 star. Always 4 star. Still alright but they need to step up their game a little bit.


Really good show, except from screech and the audience being a little poor sometimes in the show, it gets this rating

The Unforgettable Fire
Sunday Bloody Sunday
