Comments: A bomb threat causes the venue to be evacuated before the show but everything turns out all right as nothing is ever found.

Filmmaker Richard Lowenstein films all three November 1989 Sydney shows for the Lovetown tour documentary. Simply titled, Lovetown, it features live footage along with interviews and behind the scenes tour footage in a pre-ZOO-TV-esque "interference" style film. Charle Sexton and Michael Hutchence make brief cameos. "Hawkmoon 269," "Desire," "All Along The Watchtower," "All I Want Is You," "God Part II," "Van Dieman's Land," and "When Love Comes To Town" from tonight's performance are all featured in the film.

During "Desire," Bono snippets the Doors "Five To One," but changes the lyric to, "...everybody gets out of here alive."

Below is the shorter version of the documentary:
