"Possibly the best October concert. Truly strong performance in the band's North American home-away-from-home."

The first show of the month in 2017 brings us back to the October tour, to one of the best shows of the tour. This show in Boston, which was broadcasted on local radio, had the band at its best. Bono was also really in a good mood despite his voice not being at its best which can be observed during Electric Co. and I Fall Down. Highlights on this show include 11 O'Clock, With A Shout, Another Time, Another Place and The Ocean. Sound-wise, this show has a great recording which makes this a great memory of the early days of U2.
This is a great show... I don't think it's the best October show, but we have some good details... Larry's backing vocals in Gloria and Adam's backing vocals in Fire, we can hear them perfectly... and Fradoca remaster is a great source
One of my favorites. At the time the combo Brick-> ADWM was not invented yet, but Another Time Another Place sounds great and we have one of the first With A Shout. At the beginning of the show you can hear a girl shouting "Hi Mom!" in the radio broadcast. That was funny.
I love the late Boy/October performances of 11 O'Clock with a lot of participation from the crowd.
"I don't think U2 should be in the business of providing any answers. I like to think that our job is to get people thinking about issues in novel ways."
