"With their RockPop performance in Dortmund and a series of indoor shows earlier in the year, U2 are finally gaining a foothold in Germany, the third largest record market in the world. Playing a number of German festivals would serve to consolidate their following.
"They play the first day of this annual two-day festival at the Nurburgring race-circuit, near the cities of Adenau and Koblenz. Their American support, Lone Justice, open and U2's fellow countryman Chris de Burgh closes the day. Under a warm spring sun around 70,000 people sprawl around the gigantic circuit in miserable conditions: there are far too few toilets, there is a limited food supply, and serious lack of water. U2 play only an average set that initially can only be seen by those in the front while halfway up the field fans are talking and drinking, with the festival serving as background music. A song such as MLK pales into insignificance and when Bono tries to get the crowd to sing "No More" during Sunday Bloody Sunday, the response is meagre. He pulls an old stunt by climbing the scaffolding during Electric Co. to sing lines of Give Peace a Chance. It still works, as those in the back who had not seen the band now see him and cheer him on."
I believe the source of these discs I have received in trade is the same as what is described on Justin's site as:
"This is a rare but fairly non-descript bootleg from The Unforgettable Fire tour. There is a slight hiss in the background throughout. Rumblings in the audience are audible at times, but are not very bothersome. The bass level is set quite high, so you may want to adjust it downward on your stereo while listening to this bootleg. The biggest problem occurs during Bono's speech before 'Bad". Unfortunately, the sound quality drops off drastically at this point and suffers for the duration of the 13:54 performance of the song. However, sound quality returns to its previous state at the beginning of Disc 2. As is almost always the case with such rare bootlegs, this show was originally on cassette, so some minor imperfections can be expected."
I cannot find cover art for this...I think we know someone who knows how to make it though.
This is another one, as such, for collectors...feel free to give it all the "1", "2" or "3" ratings you want, this is not torrented with the idea that anyone will be impressed by anything other than its previous limited availability.
