Easily the better of the two shows performed over that historic weekend in June 1987. I still have the original ticket stub too. Easily the best and most energetic performance of "In God's Country" I have ever heard. We'll never forget Bono with those words "The statue of Liberty as we're in Dublin." "A Sort of Homecoming" hands up who has ever witnessed that live.

It was a magical performance and consider myself eternally fortunate to have witnessed them twice on this incredible tour in 1987

Recording: "First night at Dublin" - 3.5 stars


The Irish always go into overdrive when U2 are back home.


Travelled up from Galway for the show with a bunch of school friends.
