Comments on this show
The last time U2 opened a leg in Italy and ended it in Dublin? The Joshua Tree tour was the tour where this happened, and to celebrate the last month of U2's Europe leg in 2015 which also will end in Dublin we go back in time and highlight U2's show in Cork, Ireland in 1987, the last show of the Europe leg in 1987. It was Edge's birthday (which got him cake) and the last show of the leg, and it was a show in Ireland, what more can you ask for? Two songs are missing from the recording but nonetheless this is a great one to listen back to, Bono's voice is excellent and the show had some great performances such as C'Mon Everybody (the last time U2 played it live).
We encourage you to listen to this show this month and write your own review, the more, the better. Enjoy!
Thanks to angliru123 the bootlegs [mp3's] for Cork '87 have now been updated
Next to our vinyl transfer of "Cork Connection," we now also feature the bootleg "SW 51."
This is the complete show, sourced from an "unknown generation audiotape" (UAG).
I rated this one slightly higher than "Cork Connection." Not only because it's complete,
also because the transfer was done better - just my opinion, of course.
Feel free to add your review to the show page
A crying shame they couldn't make a show happen this tour especially seeing the venue has been entirely rebuilt and could host 40,000 fans. Certainly would have made up for just having one show at Croke.
"We've made some good music and had a lot of laughs. It's irreplaceable, really. It's positioning on the water has a certain kind of tranquillity even through the chaos of studio recordings. There is a real sense of creative space. I doubt we'll ever find anywhere as special."
- Larry on recording at Hanover Quay
