We would like to know which shows you attended and which shows you are going to attend. On this page you can see which members attended or are going to attend this show. Maybe you can send some of them a private message to meet up or talk about this show.
Only present during some songs like Pride, One, etc.
Some songs are played very well, others feel like routine for the band. Kite is the absolute standout. This and Sydney are the best performances of the song and is a fantastic closer for a show. Surprisingly, Stuck In A Moment and Angel of Harlem are true highlights, performed full band. Beautiful Day is great too. Nice snippets of Highway to Hell during Vertigo and Love Will Tear Us Apart during WOWY.
Welcome to our audio page, on this page you can download lossy (MP3) and sometimes even the lossless (mostly FLAC) audio recordings (also known as bootlegs) of this show. The available recordings are sorted on the type of recording and the quality of the recording.

Those who know of my Australia ‘89 Lovetown recordings and remasters will know that I am quite pedantic about quality. I was positioned about 20 m from the main speaker stacks initially but to be honest I have found the main stacks at the Vertigo concerts to be quite scooped with their freq…lots of top and mud bass but not much else. For this recording I “took one for the team” and gave up my closer viewing location for the far better taping location of directly below the mid-way satellite stacks located further back , to get the ultimate recording. There can be bass cancellation in this area, and one foot to the wrong side and its wildly different…I located the sweet spot. More of Bonos voice is piped thru the satellite speakers than the main stacks I have found which is generally a good thing for this recording, although the speakers did seem to distort slightly on some his voice peaks. Very little audience noise. Personally I rate the sound quite highly…it was a case of being in the right spot, with the right gear, on the right nite, with the band really firing. Bono talked a lot and sang a lot of new stuff over the top. Ill leave it up to you to give it a rating tho. I have traveled around the country with u2 and captured all the concerts with this rig to DAT…not an easy task with metal detectors, wanding, patting down, bag checks etc for every concert….(except this nite for some reason). Just out of interest, there was a film crew at the concert tonite for the first time, running Panavision cameras on camera trees, none of the new cameras vision were fed to the stadium screens, which leads me to believe they were for something else (a live DVD perhaps???)..interesting. Enjoy ppl!
Shout out and respect to da man BOYACROBAT for his monumental contribution with his magical Lovetown recordings…you're a legend…as well as andyshea for putting his recent stuff up.

Many thanks to Blackout for taping and sharing and to Trabant for the artwork.
Both Melbourne shows were recorded for possible inclusion in the U23D film. However, as the only footage that was used from these shows was for some close-ups of Larry and our rules state that:
'Within compilations, documentaries etc. snippets of commercial releases with a length of up to 60 seconds will be tolerated'
it seems this torrent can be allowed to run.

"We've made some good music and had a lot of laughs. It's irreplaceable, really. It's positioning on the water has a certain kind of tranquillity even through the chaos of studio recordings. There is a real sense of creative space. I doubt we'll ever find anywhere as special."
- Larry on recording at Hanover Quay

U2 drew inspiration from their studio surroundings while writing "Staring At The Sun" including Howie B's ear abscess, the European Cup, and the British presence in Northern Ireland.
