I guess Bono must have not liked that particular crowd, because 1989-12-01 looks like it would have been waaay better.
It fits on one disc if you take out the taped intro music, 79:16 long.

1989-12-01 is one of the legendary U2 sets.

I bet there were hell of Asahi bottles thrown on the stage as U2 were leaving on 29-11.

Well, really, U2 just seemed to be fond of short sets in the eighties. They rarely hit the two hour mark, despite having the material to do it rather easily.

There is. Larry's now become invisible. Like I said, the new-look U2.

More time to do coke afterwards, I suppose.

(NOTE drugs at U2 shows are first Blessed by an affiliate of the Pope so it is Heavenly and Without Sin and not at all Immoral in the eyes of our Lord and Saviour Christ because U2 are Pure Sons of the Holy Spirit and do not get up to Antics)

I know that in Dortmund on 1989-12-16, which had 17 songs (one of which was MLK and another was Bono singing White Christmas), the audience booed when U2 left after Love Rescue Me.

But that was leading up to Bono's total vocal failure two days later in Amsterdam.

Exactly. The band just decided (almost) unanimously to just take this one step further.

Sadly, much to his dismay, Larry was incapable of achieving complete invisibility to the Plebans.

It is good for him that he's now had success.

Nah, at this stage he was out in the crowd playing New Year's Day.
