Comments: 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. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

"I was very keen on the idea of going wide at a time like that, just seeing how big this thing could get. I had always admired Colonel Parker and Brian Epstein for realising that music could capture the imagination of the whole world."
- U2 manager Paul McGuinness, explaining his original motivation to make the Rattle and Hum movie
