Disc 1: Philadelphia (PA), March 4, 1981
A classic show its setlist. U2 seems more and more to help with the American public. Very specific songs like spectators repeatedly ask means I Will Follow and A Day Without Me. Bono says that he said that US radio stations are rather conservative in their programming and are quite cautious when it comes disseminate new groups on the air, but obviously the people of Philadelphia are fortunate to have good radio stations. Boy just returned on the Billboard American to the 135th spot.
The first part of the show offers a very good audience because if public influence is felt, it is not at the expense of the music. Curiously, from Stories For Boys, the record is defective, the tape speed has accelerated giving a falsetto to see Bono. The comparison between the two The Ocean and 11 O'Clock Tick Tock is eloquent on this point.
"I wrote the lyric based on the book of Ecclesiastes in the Old Testament. It’s a story of intellectual wanderlust. The preacher wants to find out the meaning of life and so he tries a bit of everything. He tries knowledge, educates himself, reads every book, but that doesn’t do it. He tries travel, sees every sight, but that doesn’t do it. He tries win, woman and song, that doesn’t do it. All he says, is vanity, vanity of vanities, striving after wind."
- Bono on The Wanderer
