    Comments on this show
    The setlist of this show is definitely something special, along with the fact that it is a great show by itself as well. What better way to kick off the month of "Early morning, April 4" than with a show that has Pride as its opener. This 100-minute lasting show is often said to have somewhat of a "backwards setlist", due to the presence of songs normally played late in the set appearing in its early stages, such as Pride and New Year's Day, while the main set staple trio of Desire, All Along The Watchtower, and All I Want Is You is in the encore. Also noteworthy is the first performance of Slow Dancing in concert - nearly four years before its first official studio release! Bono had previously sung some of the song on Australian radio in October 1989 (text partly from U2gigs).

    We encourage you to listen to this show this month and write your own review, the more, the better. Enjoy!

  2. I love this show ... one of my favourites ...and it was my first boot

    This is why i m in the world of the boots ..this was the first step
  3. I'm listening to the show right now. First time I hear it. I'm really surprised U2 joined in the intro (stand by me). At MLK right now, really like the show thus till far!

  10. Couldn't agree more! U2 at their peak.
  11. u2 fairly take the piss at the end of i still haven't found in this
  12. This incredible show is 30 years old today.

    One of the peaks of U2 live history.

    If Larry Mullen said one time that what he didn't like about the Lovetown era is that they had become somewhat of a "jukebox"....... Well, Osaka is U2's jukebox at ITS BEST EVER.
