"U2 - Amsterdam XXX Love Town" -> Silver Disc's

Manufacture : Cupido
Number      : Cupido 05
Quality     : Very good audience recording

There's a different version of this date still active, but I decided to seed it anyway.
The other one is not much better.  

Well, my first U2 concert and it's the one where Bono had voice problems. The concert was
Ok en I think Bono was really pissed off when his voice let him down. The two other
additional shows (19th & 20th Dec) were also cancelled and the band announced 4 new shows
after the new year in Rotterdam. The concert organisator (Mojo) said to keep the tickets
for a new show, but that was not the case.

Well if you had tickets for the cancelled show of the 19th Dec 1989, you could changed it
for the 5th or 6th of Jan 1990. If you had tickets for the 20th, you could change it for
the 9th or 10th Jan 1990. The ticket holders who attended the original 1st show (Dec 18th)
were not able to get any tickets. But later the stage could move more to the back, a few
2000 tickets came available over the 4 nights. So that was a lottery and the people who
were left out got their money back. So I got my money back but luckly I obtained tickets
for the 1st show in R'dam via an advert in the newspaper.

Comments:

This is a new recording of the Amsterdam LoveTown show, different from the recording Amsterdam XXX LoveTown. I have seen people consistently rate this version higher, but I think that is mainly because there is much less audience noise and, to be honest, probably just because it is a newer recording so people feel obligated to rate it higher to justify it (just my theory). While it is an excellent, above par, recording with a nice mix and low audience noise, it does not sound as good as the other version at FLOM, which is almost as good as the 1/10/90 recording. "God Part II" begins edited in a second or two, otherwise this is a complete show, clocking in just over 72 minutes. This is, by the way, the show where Bono's range died, and the B.B. King encore went unplayed, resulting in this show being free. It was later "made up" to fans with the four shows in Rotterdam a few weeks later. The bottom line: if you don't mind a few bad singers and a sometimes loud audience noise, go with the other recording, this one is definitely not as good in my opinion. This is from a D3 master and includes a full version of "Hawkmoon 269."

comment:
Poor Bono ! He struggled with his voice and gave his best. In the end everyone got his money back. So it was a 75 min -free-show.

Last performance of Hawkmoon 269, and its only performance outside Australia. This concert came to a premature close due to serious problems with Bono's voice that were especially manifested in God Part II. Concerts for the next two nights were cancelled and four replacement shows were performed early in January 1990 in Rotterdam. Due to the premature conclusion of the show, the usual encore with BB King and his band was not played, and accordingly this is the only Lovetown gig at which Angel Of Harlem, When Love Comes To Town, and Love Rescue Me were not performed.
