1987-11-11 - San Francisco, California - Justin Herman Plaza


Performance notes: All Along The Watchtower was recorded here for Rattle & Hum; this is the first time U2 had performed it since 1 February 1981 and it is so ramshackle that it was touched up in the studio before the commercial release. In the middle of Sunday Bloody Sunday, Bono sees a sign with 'SF' & 'U2' on it. Bono mistakes the 'SF' as Sinn Fein (rather than San Francisco) and has a fit. During Out Of Control, Bono sings a mangled lyric that combines references from Sexual Healing and Dancing On The Ceiling into one short snippet.
