Comments on this show
If you look back in U2's history for historical shows in January this one might be the one show that not only stands out in January, but also in general. The last concert of the Lovetown tour was an amazing show with too many highlights to note down. As one of our reviewers, who attended the show, wrote: "This show had everything".
We encourage you to listen to this show this month and write your own review, the more, the better. Enjoy!
This show is my first boot on cd, "All I want is U2".
One of my favorite U2 concerts. Best Desire ever. Awsome All along the watchtower, great version of Bad. Very good version of People get ready. Encore: of Out of Control and 11 o clock tick tock. Wild audience,
I was at the Amsterdam, Rai Europa Hal, 18-12-1989, this concert was stopped because of voice problems of Bono. I received my money back, unfortenately did not managed to get a ticket for the Rotterdam shows in January 1990. I still regret this.
"Adam is sampling older eras and dropping them into new eras like a postmodern artist. He's our postmodern postman."
- Bono, 2017

The Rattle and Hum album opens with a live cover of The Beatles' "Helter Skelter". Its inclusion on the album was intended by the band to reflect the confusion of The Joshua Tree Tour and their new-found superstar status.
