Comments: Setlist is incomplete, though 11 O'clock Tick Tock is known to have been the opener. This show was forgotten to the wider U2 fanbase until an article in the Western People newspaper in 2005. Since then further details have come to light. The town was not part of the rock touring circuit, and U2's appearance was an attempt to change that reality. A thin crowd of about sixty people attended but the band put in a good performance. However, it was marred afterwards when a row erupted and one of U2's crew was caught up in the middle. U2 rushed out from backstage to intervene and became the target of aggression - Bono was hit on the back with a chair and Adam's glasses were broken. The fight was finally broken up by police, fortunately without serious injuries. Two young local men were fined £9.50 each for thei roles in the fight. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

"I love being there, I love America, I love the feeling of the wide open spaces, I love the deserts, I love the mountain ranges, I even love the cities. So having fallen in love with America over the years that we've been there on tour, I then had to 'deal with' America and the way it was affecting me, because America's having such an effect on the world at the moment. On this record I had to deal with it on a political level for the first time, if in a subtle way."
- Bono, on the Joshua Tree's thematic inspirations
