Snippets of Other Songs Performed by U2:
"Cry" (U2) /
This show saw U2 playing the Polytechnic in Manchester, a show presented by Better Late than Never productions, and a price of £1.20 in advance, and £1.50 at the door. U2 was joined by an opening act, Altered Images, who did a number of shows with U2 at this time.
During the show Adam wears a t-shirt from the Futurama festival at which the band had performed. The stage is small, and the Peter Rowen backdrop is set behind Larry on the stage.
The set list for the show is taken from written set lists for the show that was given to a fan the night of the performance. Two hand written set lists both list the same tracks, and both have been identified as have been from this show. “Cry” is listed on the set list, as a separate song as was common at the time, however it is likely that it was played as part of the start to “The Electric Co.” so we have included it as a snippet. To our knowledge a recording of this concert does not exist so the full set cannot be confirmed in that manner.
