An early but impressive live U2 performance
9 September 2002 | by (Mayo, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Even at this early stage in their US breakthrough U2 were already displaying the elements which have made them one of America's favorite rock acts and Ireland's greatest musical export.

This concert recorded in 1983 during their US tour at Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver in Colorado (Near the little town of Morrison which has a great Mexican Restautant called the Morrison Inn!!) showcases most of the early hits from Boy, October and War.

Flare and torches blaze at either side of the stage as Bono struts (and steams in the aftermath of a torrential downpour) his way through Gloria, I will follow, 11 O'Clock Tick tock, Party Girl, New Years Day, A blistering version of Sunday Bloody Sunday containing the now immortal introduction of "There's been a lot of talk about this song, maybe, maybe too much talk, This song is not a rebel song. This song is..." and The Electric Co before finishing off with the excellent crowd singalong 40 which fades to the wonderfully atmostheric crowd chant of "How long to sing this song".

Edge playes the blues and Larry bates the drums and Adam with a great big blond mullet haircut just acts cool. This is an excellent companion piece to the more mature and sophisticated Rattle and Hum DVD and it would be nice to see this also released on DVD sometime soon.
