Performance notes: A small group of fans are invited into the venue for the soundcheck and they witness performances of Dancing Barefoot (a Patti Smith cover U2 recorded for the When Love Comes To Town single but never played in concert) and She's A Mystery To Me (which didn't make its concert debut for another 2.5 months). In draft itineraries, an eighth Melbourne show at the same venue was listed for the next night, 1989-10-17. This show was never put on sale.
