This show was promoted by Straight Music, and saw U2 with the Comsat Angels performing at the Mayfair Ballroom on Newgate Street. Tickets are £3.00 and are sold at the box office, and at local record shops, as well as at the door. Doors opened at 7:30.
Marshall Hall, writer of the book, Ballroom Blitz: The Newcastle Mayfair Story and maintainer of a website of the same name, tracked the bands who appeared at the Ballroom over the years and included setlists where he was able to find them. As part of that site, the set list for this U2 show was listed, although to our knowledge it has not been confirmed anywhere else.
The setlist as listed is “Gloria – Another Time Another Place – Rejoice – An Cat Dubh – Into The Heart – I Threw A Brick Through A Window – Cry/Electric Co. – I Fall Down – October (with Edge on piano) – Stories For Boys – I Will Follow – Twilight – Out Of Control – Fire – 11 O’Clock Tick Took – and then a reprise of ‘Fire’ for the encore”
Little else is known about the show. The venue is said to have been packed.
