Earliest known live recording of U2 has been uncovered - a Dandelion Market show!

You gotta read this story at atu2.com. They've been doing extensive research on the band's early shows, and their efforts turned up a tape of an Aug 1979 Dandelion Market show!

I'd pay good money for a full copy of that gig.

Axver hasn’t even heard it yet and he’s already declared it’s better than anything the band released after October!

Why aren’t they just uploading the whole show so everyone can download it? It’s not good enough quality for the band to release it themselves.

Yeah - massive douchebaggery from atu2. Very cool, but I wish I could appreciate their efforts.

it's ridiculous that they're only sharing 50 second long samples of two songs. what's the fucking point of having the recording if they're not going to share it?

Maybe they are offering it up to the band first?

Very cool, we should get the full show at some point and I would venture that they want to atleast make the offer to the band to release it in some capacity. So this is the first time we’ve ever heard snippets of In Your Hand and Concentration Cramp right?

You don't think the band's hq was made aware of this before atU2 got involved?

As I said above, it's probably not good enough quality for the band to actually charge people for it.

I would be impressed if the band was with the times enough to realize this could be a cool PR move with their fanbase (like showing up to that fan gathering and playing with the tribute band), to buy up the recording and issue it as the fan club exclusive next year.

In latest news the band has decided to shelve JT32 tour for the Dandelion Market 40 tour. Announcement to come.

Tonight has clearly always been a snippet. Would love to hear what it sounds like as a full song.

I’ve always wondered what the basis was for picking which songs made the cut for boy. I love the album, but they seemed to drop some really good songs like Street Mission and False Prophet before they could road test then with a wide raudience

I think they made the right call with Boy. There are some good songs from that era but they picked the best for the album.
