Show Details:

The third show in London saw U2 play the 101 Club, which was located next to the Clapham Junction Station in St. John’s Hill. The club was also a label, putting out records, and was considered a sister club to the Rock Garden, where U2 would play a few nights later. The club was two levels and many acts played the club because they could also get attention from the label. The club operated under a membership fee, which was £1.50 and includes first entrance to the club. The doors that night opened at 7:30.

U2 are the opening act for this show as well. The headliner, The Beat, are better known by the name The English Beat in North America and The British Beat in other parts of the the world. Little is know about either U2’s performance or The Beat’s performance from this evening. It was Dave Wakeling of The Beat that would go on to produce the album, Alternate NRG to which U2 contributed years later.

U2 are credited as “U2’s” in the Time Out ad for the show and “U.2’s” in the Sounds ad for the show.
