Snippets of Other Songs Performed by U2:
U2 are growing bigger and word is out in New York. They are able to book The Ritz for three nights in a row, which is impressive for a still relatively new band. During the day U2 work with producer Sandy Pearlman on new material and at night they play The Ritz. U2 are billed as U-2 for the show, and tickets for all three are $11.50. The shows are late night shows and the doors open at 10pm. The shows are reported as a sellout in Pimm’s book U2 Live and he lists attendance at 4800 for the three shows combined. The band have played here twice before, and will return twice more in 1982, and Bono will appear on stage with The Alarm at this venue in 1983. There is little detail known about the first two shows.
