1980-12-13 - Boston, Massachusetts - The Paradise

setlist

Comments: Roughly 150 people are in attendance for U2's set, even though the capacity is 500. Nonetheless, the crowd is very enthusiastic and calls for not just one encore (which was 11 O'clock Tick Tock) but two (which was Out Of Control). By the time Barooga take the stage, only 40 audience members are left, some of whom are U2 and their crew. This concert began U2's strong connection with the city of Boston, a "home away from home" for the band.

Performance

This part is only rated, not commented on

Sound

Not bad, quite enjoyable
Recording: Audience microphone - 2.5 stars

Audience

Not present in the boot, but Boston fans were always very supportive of the band from the start

Overall

First bootleg from a US show (the alleged Washington boot is actually from this show). Bono comes to the US with a strange accent he didn't have in Paris days ago. He sings differently too. Highlights: Another Time, Another Place, Twilight and the second 11 O'Clock.
