WANTED: List of U2 opening acts

Hey all,

I'm trying to get a list of all the well to fairly well-known bands/artists that have opened up for U2 in the past. I love to bring up "cool" bands like The Pixies when someone calls U2 corporate rock or some other indie slur.

Off the top of my head, here's what I have so far:

BB King
The Pixies
Public Enemy
Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy
Rage Against the Machine
Bloodhound Gang
Oasis
No Doubt
PJ Harvey
Big Audio Dynamite

Any others? My 80's tour knowledge is pretty non-existent.

Thanks


laz

The Velvet Underground

That book "U2 Live" lists every single one.

Someone here posted a file with all openers ... I'll do a forum search and if I find it, I'll make another post.
