Show Details:

This show takes place at The Garden of Eden club in Tullamore on a Sunday night. The show is a double bill, with U2 on stage from 10 – 11:30pm, and the Tony Stevens Band on stage from 11:30 to 1:30. Admission for both acts is £2.

Throughout the day, Bono spends his time with photographer David Corio, and is photographed in the streets of Tullamore. Corio is also present at the show and takes photos throughout.

Many listings in the local Dublin papers list U2 playing in Thurles on this night, however, we have confirmed with local promoter Elvera Butler that the band did indeed play in Tullamore, and in fact she helped drive the band there from their previous show in Cork. The Thurles gig which she also organized happened at a later date.

The show opens with the “Silver Lining” version of “11 O’Clock Tick Tock”. The lyrics are still a work in progress. Bono will be inspired later in the month by a show in London to rewrite the song, but the band have already changed the name of the song from “Silver Lining” to “11 O’Clock Tick Tock”, as witnessed on the set list at the show in Cork the night before this one.

Bootlegs of this full show exist.
