Fantastic performance. Each song is played very well and Bono's voice is strong. Bono's pretty talkative and gets the audience pumping.

The second 11 O'Clock Tick Tock is longer than usual and played very well. Some slight changes to Into the Heart were pretty good.


One of the best-sounding boots from the Boy Tour, which makes it especially good as many shows from this era have no known recordings or are very low-quality. The sound has some imperfections but they are so minor that they really don't take away from the show at all.


Good and enthused but not too noticeable on the recording. The band are very clear here.


Very strong performance with great sound. The only possible complaints would be that it's kind of short (only 12 different songs, as 11 O'Clock Tick Tock, I Will Follow, and The Ocean are used to open and close the show) and none of the songs are uncommon except maybe Things to Make and Do. Really though, these are minor issues. Definitely get this bootleg, it's one of the best available from the Boy Tour.

-11 O'Clock Tick Tock (both of them, though the second one has to be one of the best ones I've ever heard)
-An Cat Dubh/Into the Heart (best performance?)
-Another Time, Another Place
-The Electric Co
-Out of Control
