Haven't seen much of the US Conspiracy of Hope Tour around, so here is one, This is the first show of that short tour. I
have here the two sets I think were the best ones: Sting and U2. Both performances are solid and the audience seemed to
enjoy the show a lot. U2 opened the show with C'Mon Everybody which was not performed anymore during the tour. They hadn't
played on tour since July 1985. Sting had just completed his first solo tour so the band was well. Fortress fades in before
Sting starts to sing, so there must be no more than 2 minutes missing.
Soundwise both are very nice, I would say a solid 9. You will hear some screams here and there during the show but nothing
really disturbing if you are used to the wild reaction of US audiences. If you are fans of these two bands, I may not
want to miss this download.

June 4, 1986. San Francisco, CA. Cow Palace.
This concert was recorded during the Amnesty International Tour.
The CD contains a long version of "Bad" (nearly 13 minutes) with
"Candle In The Wind" and "Biko" at the end sung two times by Bono,
but the drawback is that this track was artificially lengthened by
someone splicing the center section back onto the end of the song.
The Edge plays a very aggressive guitar during "Pride (In The Name
Of Love)," with an unusual amount of "rock" distortion.
"Sunday Bloody Sunday" is played very softly and slowly. Some mistakes
on the cover: "Sunday Bloody Sunday" is written by U2 and not by
Lennon/Ono, "Bad" is not by Castor/Pruitt/Thomas/Gibson.
Track 8 is mentioned as "Not So Far Away (Sun City)" instead of "Sun City".
The booklet is minimal with no information concerning the tour.
This is a good document of one of the few shows U2 performed in 1986.
Although the sound isn't as crisp as a soundboard, all the instruments
come through very well. Crowd noise, though present, is manageable and
not distracting. There's also quite a few covers here, including a
fairly rare take on "Sun City."
This is the original pressing on this label.
"I actually think it's about sex in Dublin as a teenager. It's about finding a place where you can be with your girlfriend, which was a real problem at the time."
- Bono on the song 'Another time, Another Place'
did you know
During early rehearsals for the band, Adam couldn't play the bass. The rest of the band didn't even notice at first, blaming everything but Adam for the bad sound.
