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


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.

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. They nail simply EVERY single song on this one. The passion makes it their best concert of the LoveTown Dublin dates. The versions of Streets, With Or Without You, God Part II the very best around. The version of One Tree Hill is beyond words, you should get this show only for this performance. The band never sounded this good.


Perfect mix. Fantastic clear sound.


Although you can't hear them too much due to the mix, you just feel their enthusiasm. They certainly lift the band up to unbelievable heights.


Download this one now. At the moment I think it's the best gig U2 ever did. Nothing can top this I guess. Stand-out highlights: One Tree Hill, All I Want Is You, Streets, Desire, With Or Without You, Running To Stand Still and 40. Uhm, I should mention the whole gig as a highlight. It's even better than the new year's eve concert.
