3½/5: The end could have been different/better, but The Joshua Tree performance was great. One Tree Hill was impressive!
U2: From my first encounter (Pinkpop 1981) through 30 year old The Joshua Tree to personal favorite: 20 year old Pop.
The medium 12-inch or maxi-single became hugely popular during the 1980’s. It created some beautiful music. A (small) inventory.

4½/5: At the very last moment I bought tickets to this concert and was blown away by an extremely hungry, energetic and motivated U2. By far the best U2 concert I ever witnessed!
4/5: U2 in great form. Definite highlight I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight was stunning!
2½/5: Not a real memorable concert, except the piece of When I Get Home Bono sang as a tribute to Herman Brood, who had died three weeks earlier.
4/5: The tour accompanying my favorite U2 album Pop. I thought the mix of rock and dance was bold and it had turned out perfectly.
Tags: DJ Shadow, U2
4/5: The renowned U2 tour. They played some songs off the, at the time, brand new album Zooropa. Good show!
Tags: Stereo MC's, U2
3½/5: The Bono loses his voice show. Good concert.
Tags: BB King, U2
