Seriously, those motherfuckers need to do a RAH re-release that has the fullest version of this (given there are varying cuts) as the bonus DVD.

There is also proshot footage of 27 September 1989 that needs to come out. I'm really not sure which of them has the best example of the extended Desire solo.

Honestly, I'd be surprised if U2 remember that this stuff exists... probably haven't watched this footage since 1989

Somebody needs to lock them in a vault with Lovetown material and say "see, remember when you were good? Come out as cool as this or don't come out at all."

Hawkmoon 269 here just about owns everything. I remember an interview from that era when Bono said he considered that song as the greatest rock and roll they had ever made. I would not argue with this.

Me neither. My one hope for the upcoming tour is that they don't just focus on JT material but also realise Lovetown had a pretty damn good couple of live gems. If they play Hawkmoon live again I can die a happy woman.

Surprisingly Bono did remember in 2010. He talked about it during the second Sydney 360 show before they played All I Want is You and Love Rescue Me. He even name dropped the director, Richard Lowenstein, and how some shows were even cancelled due to his throat issues.

Definitely, the version of Hawkmoon here is one of U2's greatest live moments and Edge's solo on Desire is one of the best things he's solos he's ever played.

Why does this seem like a lost era for them?

Apart from Desire, Angel of Harlem and All I Want is You..

Van Diemen's Land played once since 1993
When Love Comes to Town played seven times since 1993
Love Rescue Me played four times since 1990
Hawkmoon and God Part II only played on Lovetown
Heartland never played

In the recent Rolling Stone interview, Edge said specifically that the U.S. shows on this tour would have related material to go along with the full JT album. I don't think Heartland getting resurrected is far-fetched.

And it was mentioned on that now infamous q&a video, so they haven't forgotten it at least.
