Comments: DJ Dave Fanning introduces U2 at the beginning of "Where The Streets Have No Name." Later, Bono brings a fan named Nicky on stage to play guitar during "People Get Ready." "A Sort Of Homecoming" is not played again until 2001.

The perfromance of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" from this show is later featured in the September 1987 Trip Through Your Wires radio call-in show.

The concert is filmed for an episode of the British news program, World In Action. Featuring lots of live footage, the episode about U2 and their Irish fans, is directed by Paul Greengrass, who would later go on to become a successful feature film director.
