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.

The SETLIST!!!. That setlist kicked ass!!!! Incredible. First of all, opened with Hawkmoon!! Moreover, it was a very good version. Second, the middle part is awesome. Desire-Watchtower-Bullet-Running-Streets-IWF-Gloria-ISHFWILF-AIWIY-PGR-AOH... And so on. After that, comes WOWY (amazing version IMO) and... God Part II!!!!! Amazing opsition (16th song), and followed by NYD and Pride!! Also the finishing is great, with Party and 40 (both great renditions).
The audience is great. The overall ambient is very good, and the bad seems to be on a great mood. Also BBKings band is fantastic (as usual, to be sincere).
The SOUND. Sometimes the audience sound and the hiss drowns out the band. Other times, the recording itself is so bad that you can barely hear The Edge or so
Terrible. I've listened to lots of shows; good, bad, averages and fair audiences. But this one is BAD. Although it has good mooments (God Part II, etc), the overall quality is bad. 6/10 Recording: "Melbourne Memoirs Vol 6 (boyacrobat)" - 3 stars

It's a good sound with bottom end, again some clip due to mics but with atmosphere,this show sounds best through good headphones and personal equalising i feel, its a loud rec so start off low @ adjust.
