RE-UP: U2 Dublin 1997 soundcheck - 1CD - August 30

U2
Dublin, Ireland, Lansdowne Road
August, 30, 1997
(soundcheck)

(24:44)
01 Bad - instrumental, faded in - (3:54)
02 jam: "Bad" sequencer, checking the drum sound, "Gone" guitar (4:50)
03 Gone - Edge on vocals - (5:42)
04 Mofo - Edge on vocals - (4:48)
05 jam: guitar ("Where The Streets Have No Name", "Please", "One") (5:27)


Recorded outside the stadium at the "red entrances" at the Lansdowne Road. Crowd noise is sometimes annoying. The sound quality is not good but
still listenable.

There are some vocals on "Bad" and I am not sure if it is Edge or a fan who sings those lines (it was sung well).

This soundcheck includes at least one member from U2 (Edge) and for this reason it is special. Mostly the soundchecks were done by the technicians only.

(soundcheck)

(18:55)
01 Gone - instrumental, faded in - (4:43)
02 Mofo - instrumental - (4:19)
03 I Will Follow - intro - (0:16)
04 dead air (2:29)

07 With Or Without You - instrumental - (2:15)
08 dead air (1:00)

Recorded outside the stadium. The sound quality is not good and you can hear crowd noise.

I don't think that a member of U2 took part in this soundcheck.

There are many flaws, e. g.:

01 0:12-0:17, 0:23-0:27, 0:31
02 0:22, 0:28, 3:35, 3:41
07 1:49 and maybe more.

27 Rain (4:27)
28 Outro (2:11)

Recorded at the back of the front of stage area. There is hardly any crowd noise on the recording.

If you want to split it on two cds then you can start the second cd with "Please". Disc 1 is 68:54 and disc 2 63:42 long.

I did some digital clones from my master in 1997 and 1998 but there has never been a transfer from this master so far. The cd version
which exists is taken from a digital clone or a higher generation of a clone.

This was the best of the seven "Popmart"-shows which I saw in 1997. It was raining all day (not heavily but steadily) and rain-concerts
are the best! So many and unexpected snippets like "In The Name Of The Father", "Summer Holiday", "Broken English" and "Children Of The Revolution"! There
were problems with Edge's guitar on "Until The End Of The World" and with the start of "New Year's Day".

Disappointing was only the small number of fans (less than 20 000) which joined the concert. "Popmart" was not a success in Germany.

07 Pride - speaker overdubs from 1:47 to the end - (4:00)


The speaker introduced the recording and a second speaker overdubbed most of "Pride". I did not cut the comments out because those comments show you that it was a simultaneous
broadcast and not a pre-recorded one.

Unfortunately the radio station only had permission to broadcast half an hour.

02 Gone (4:24)
03 checking the sound (1:57)
04 Gone (4:55)
05 Even Better Than The Real Thing - faded out - (2:32)


Recorded outside the venue (an old airport). The distance was very far and for this reason the sound is poor. There is some crowd noise on the recording.

This soundcheck includes Bono on vocals. Mostly he is not present at soundchecks. I guess the reason for this "full band soundcheck" was the radio broadcast.
This show was (partially) recorded and the songs

Gone,
Even Better Than The Real Thing,
Last Night On Earth,
Until The End Of The World,
New Year's Day,
Pride (radio speaker overdubs)

were broadcasted a few weeks later. Maybe U2 wanted to make sure perfect recording levels.

NOTE (from Justin):  This recording was transferred from a first generation DAT to CDR.  It was then rematered by Francesco Donadel, the same person who remastered the "Wembley Nights" series.  This is a truly outstanding bootleg -- sharp, crisp sound with prominent vocals and instruments.  Crowd noise is extremely minimal. Trust me, this recording sounds better
than the commercial release "Popdream Believer".
