Show Details:

U2 retrun from their shows in the United States, and play a handful of shows around Ireland before Christmas, including shows in Belfast, Sligo, Cork and Dublin, and this one in Galway. The shows are advertised as the Irish Tour ’80 in the press and on posters for the show.

An article in the Connacht Tribune discussing a tribute to the manager of opening act Blaze X, reported “He managed Tuam punk band Blaze X during the late ’70s and early ’80s and famously secured them a support gig to U2 at Leisureland in 1980. Many who attended the concert insist that Blaze X outshone U2 that night as they received an encore, which was a rare occurrence for a support band.” The show was sponsored by the U.C.G. Students Union, and tickets were sold through Music City, Zhivago Records, as well as the Student Union.

Set list is confirmed via set list written before the show, and may not document exactly what was performed that night. Tickets are sold via Zhivago Records in advance of the show.
