It’s 1987 and it’s the Joshua Tree tour!
Can’t believe all the shows I went to in Worcester. It’s a hike!
I went to this show with five friends. (one who sits behind me at work and doesn’t remember going! hmmmph! LOL) I wonder if I took my Mom’s station wagon? LOL!
Tickets bumped up to $16.50. LOL!!!
A little from the review I have saved:
U2: Fervent Prose At Fever Pitch (written by clea simon)
“We’re not the Beatles, we’re U2” was how singer Bono Vox quieted one screaming fan on the first night of three sold out shows where the excitement level approached hysteria. Certainly his band has reached nearly the same level of adoration as the British Invasion heroes- with a number one record and the cover story of Time magazine. But as the singer said and as their powerful concert at the Worcester Centrum proved, U2 isn’t content with pop star status.
Another review I have saved:
Rockers U2 Discover An Adoring Audience In Worcester
From the last paragraph:
After about four songs the crowd grown rowdy, Bono told the audience just what it wanted to hear: “Boston is a home away from home…and it doesn’t end there, this is just the beginning.”
