Performance notes: 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.

Solid performance of the lads. Bono's voice cracks up though. (you might be glad it did, otherwise we wouldn't have the legendary Ahoy' shows later on. Big plus for Hawkmoon 269 and The Unforgettable Fire.
Decent. It's not always that clear but it's a solid audience recording. Well worth listening Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
Good, for Duch standards. The carry the B-manhe through the shortened show. They well deserved another row of gigs.
If you're a LoveTown-addict you should give this one a listen. For any other fan, it's not one of the must haves but well worth a try just for the performance of The Unforgettable Fire, which is among the best around in my opinion. Lowlight is the cracked up voice of Bono, the reason why they shortened the show and got back to Holland in the beginning of the 90's. There they served us a real must-have for every fan.

Poor Bono ! He struggled with his voice and gave his best. In the end everyone got his money back. So it was a 75 min -free-show.

what they said
"I don't know how abstract the record will end up but it has started quite abstract, a lot of very, very aggressive guitar playing. Edge is like a maniac at the moment. It's not going to be a laid-back record, I can tell you that."
- Bono on making Achtung Baby, 1990
did you know
The song Heartland is about a trip Bono and Adam made after the Joshua Tree tour through America by car, they passed many placed and states and Heartland contains phrases of Bono's journey of that trip.
