Comments: This gig was originally believed to have taken place at the Old Globe Theater, a venue known more for Shakesperean productions that for rock concerts. But The Globe's web site explains that the venue was closed between 1978 and 1982 due to a fire. Other reports suggest the gig happened at the Backdoor, a club on the campus of San Diego State University, but in a 2005 article about U2's history in San Diego, Guy Richard -- who booked talent at the Backdoor in the early 1980s -- said that's not the case:

I passed on the show," Richard recalled. "They wanted $1,000 for U2, which wouldn't pay for the band's backstage catering now. I didn't think more than five people would come.

So, for now, we'll leave the venue for this concert as "unknown." We're not actually certain that the gig even happened.
