1989-12-18 - Amsterdam, Netherlands - Rai Europa Hal


Comments: Last performance of Hawkmoon 269, and its only performance outside Australia. This concert came to a premature close because of serious problems with Bono's voice that manifested especially seriously in God Part II. Concerts for the next two nights were cancelled and four replacement shows were performed early in January 1990 in Rotterdam. Because of the premature conclusion of the show, the usual encore with BB King and his band was not played, and accordingly this is the only Lovetown gig at which Angel Of Harlem, When Love Comes To Town, and Love Rescue Me were not performed.
