Snippets of Other Songs Performed by U2:
U2 open their second show for Barooga Bandit, this time in New Haven, CT, at a venue called Toad’s Place. U2 are advertised in media as U-II.
In Boston, U2 had opened for Barooga Bandit, and a large crowd had shown up for their act, and then later spilled out of the club when Barooga took the stage. This isn’t the case in New Haven, and the show is almost empty with estimates as low as six to twelve people in attendance. U2 is also struggling with their sound system and the band gives up on their performance after attempting just a few songs. They ended up inviting the small crowd backstage to share in some of the food prepared there, and chatted with their fans. Barooga Bandit did perform.
A fight between members of U2 did not happen on this night, and is said to have happened at the same venue in 1981.
