Show Details:

Coming off three successful nights in New York City, the band moves to New Jersey for two back to back shows. They play Hitsville North in Passaic on the first night, and then play Hitsville South in Asbury Park on the second night. Both shows start late at night and run well after midnight. Supporting U2 for both nights are The Nitecaps. Early advertisements had these two dates in the reverse order.

The second night in New Jersey goes a little smoother than the first where U2 found themselves competing with a DJ on another level of the club. A local DJ, provides music prior to The Nitecaps and U2 taking the stage, and again after U2 finish the show. This club is the same place that U2 had played earlier in the year, called Fast Lane, when they played in May.

During the show Bono includes a snippet of “Send in the Clowns” in “The Electric Co.” which opens with “Cry”.

Bouncers at the club remember the entire band squeezing into a station wagon and leaving after the show with Bono in front and the other three in the back.
