please note: there is a mistake on the coverart. the tracklisting above is the right one.
Comments by u2depot: This one's taken from a first gen copy of a pro shot
master video recorded for Dutch television. (NOT from one of the silver
CD bootlegs of this gig that are in existence). To my knowledge this video
never aired though. It's their first (and only) performance in the city of
The Hague and the sixth show in The Netherlands. There were 500 in attendance.
After Into The Heart Bono mentions the band's first visit to Amsterdam:
"We played a place called the milky-something, a very, very strange place."
(The Milkyway 10/15/81, second performance ever outside of Ireland and England).
During I Will Follow Bono is late for the second verse because he gets tangled
up in his microphone wire. The last track starts with Adam extensively
rehearsing the bass section between An Cath Dubh and Into The Heart and
towards the end Edge comes in to improvise a bit, resulting in what would
later become Fire.
Not to be missed by any fan who likes the early live material I'd say.

"In the middle of the night I was woken up by the bus driver screaming. Adam was standing there naked off his trolley, trying to get out of the bus at 70 mph. He just wanted to take a piss, not realizing where he was."
- Bono on a bus drive in the US in 1983
did you know
On tour in Australia in the autumn of '89 Larry had told Bono that if this is what it meant for U2 to be superstars, he didn't like it. It was one of the reasons for the musical and artistic revolution in the nineties.
