1989-12-26 - Dublin, Ireland - Point Depot

setlist

Comments: The verse Bono sings at the end of One Tree Hill is completely improvised; it is not a snippet. Part of a William Wordsworth poem is read at the start of Where The Streets Have No Name in tribute to the recently deceased Irish poet Samuel Beckett. This show features the first use of God Part II as an opener - the only other time it takes this role is on 5 January 1990 in Rotterdam.

Performance

Oh. My. Word.

Superb. So much energy. So much soul. Such a great great performace.

Obviously in Dublin the band raise their game, but knowing what we know now (the band weren't going through the best of times) this was obviously a release of anger/frustration and it just added so much it's brilliant.


Sound

Does not get better.

Audience

A Dublin audience for a Dublin band.

Particularly like the singing along in Running To Stand Still.


Overall

If you've not got this in your collection you're not a U2 fan. Simple.

Highlights:
- God Part II
- BTBS
- RTSS - possibly my favourite version. Love the crowd's interaction and Bono's breathing into the harmonica at the end.
- Love Rescue Me.

Lowlights:
- None!
