As news is out that U2 is going on tour again, I decided to dig up a couple stubs from the first two times I saw U2. It was on the Unforgettable Fire tour and they were awesome! I had bought a ticket to see them on the Friday show, and they were so great, I went back to see them the next night.
The two shows were very similar, except I recall that on the second night, they added “I Fall Down” to the set. I did some searching online, but was only able to find a setlist from the first night. Frankly, I’m surprised I was even able to find this. There was no digital media to record all this information back in the 80’s. I’m glad someone had the forethought to keep a record of the details.
Anyway, here’s the setlist from the 5/3 show. Sorry I don’t have more to share about this one. All I remember is that they were great, I was blown away, and that they were incredibly energetic on stage.
- 11 O’Clock Tick Tock
- I Will Follow
- The Unforgettable Fire
- Sunday Bloody Sunday
- A Sort of Homecoming
- New Year’s Day
- Pride (In the Name of Love)
- Trash, Trampoline and the Party Girl
