NEW: U2 live in Sydney 1989 - 2CD - November 18 - source #3

U2
18 November 1989
Entertainment Centre, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

*Although I am not certain of how close my CDRs are to the master, the sound is crisp and I would presume it is from the master or a low generation source.

Quality: It is my opinion that this is a very good quality audience bootleg for the Australian leg of the Lovetown Tour.  There is static during When Love Comes To Town.

Setlist:

CD1
1. Evacuation announcement (See concert details below)
2. Hawkmoon 269
3. Desire
4. All Along The Watchtower
5. All I Want Is You
6. God Part II
7. Bullet The Blue Sky
8. Running To Stand Still
9. Gloria
10. I Will Follow
11. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

CD2
1. Knockin' On Heaven's Door
2. Bad
3. Van Diemen's Land
4. New Year's Day
5. Pride (In The Name Of Love)
6. Angel Of Harlem
7. When Love Comes To Town
8. Angel Of Harlem
9. 40
(CD2 Tracks 6-8 are with BB King and his band.)

Concert details:
On the first leg of the Lovetown Tour, U2 had to cancel a number of shows in Sydney, Australia's largest city, after Bono fell ill and had vocal troubles.  These shows were rescheduled to be played after U2's four in New Zealand, and this particular show is one of the rescheduled dates.  Circumstances continued to attempt to conspire against the show ever being played, as the police received a bomb threat and had to evacuate the entire venue before showtime.  Luckily, no bomb was found, the band took the stage, and the concert was not only played safely, it was played sensationally.  Portions of this concert can be seen on the Lovetown Documentary that was broadcast on some television stations and is widely bootlegged.

Notable setlist elements:
- Very rare omission of Where The Streets Have No Name.
- Last time U2 played Hawkmoon 269 in Australia.  Second-to-last Hawkmoon 269 ever.  All eight performances of Hawkmoon 269 were as the concert opener and seven of these were in Australia.  The last was on 18 December 1989 in Amsterdam.

There was a bomb threat before the show and all of the 12.000 visitors were asked to leave the building. You can hear this on
track 1 on disc 1. After being readmitted the audience saw one of the best shows from this tour.

"Knocking On Heaven's Door" had improvised lyrics, citing the Berlin wall coming down and the city of Sydney.

(17:317
01 Slow Dancing (5:23)
02 jamming (1:35)
03 unknown (6:48)
04 unknown (3:27)

The recording is incomplete. The last track cuts off. The full setlist of the soundcheck was:

Slow Dancing/ Two Hearts Beat As One/ unknown/ unknown/ Where The Streets Have No Name/ Bad

The most important songs of the soundcheck are available. I have never seen a complete copy of this soundcheck in circulation.
I only got Slow Dancing as a first copy from the taper. I received the two unknown songs in a trade 20 years ago.

Track 3 is "Going Down South" from the "Berlin demos" which is an early version of the bridge in "Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around
The World". I have no idea about track 4.

The quality is poor. It was a windy day in Auckland on November 11th in 1989 and this soundcheck was probably recorded from outside
the venue. The taper did not record the show (I don't know the reason for it).

Recordind could be good if there was not not this wind that completly ruins the sound.  It was impossible to remove this annoying sound.  Too bad, the two songs rehearsed are particullary intertesting.  I suppose it the same taper who taped the incomplete show the night before.

First song can be found in instrumental form in the achtung baby stole tapes rehearsals but bono added lyrics on it during this soundchek.

"People are squashed in the rough crowd and just prior to the show U2's production manager Steve Iredale comes onstage to stress that before the band will come on, everyone must take a step back.  Several times throughout the show, Bono asks the crowd to take it easy to look after each other.  After Pride the band go backstage, Bono excuses himself, "Sorry, I have to take a piss!"

Here is a nice tape I got from my friend Sam. He told me he got this straight from the taper. Sound is pretty good, I would say very good to excellent audience. Audience chatter can be heard from time to time but its not really distracting.

NEW: U2 live in Christchurch 1989 - 2CD - November 4 - source #3

U2 Christchurch 4th of November 1989 - Remastered

Unknown tape source, unknown generation, sourced from tape trade.
Sound is a little distant but clear.

On 4th of November 1989 U2 played a show to the biggist audience ever
assembled in Christchurch, 60 000 people gathered in Lancaster Park
stadium, which now is called "Jade Stadium". U2 was on one of their
shorter tours, the 1989 -1990 Lovetown tour, which mostly was a
continuation of the 1987 Joshua Tree Tour, covering the Pacific Rim,
ending in Europe with the famous New Years Night show from Dublin and
a few other European stops.

I downloaded this originally from U2torrents.com
The channel imbalance of this stereo recording became apparent immediately,
with one channel running at about half the volume of the other. When trying
to fix this I also discovered that left and right channels had been swaped
three times over the course of the show. I rectified this before re-combining
all tracks into one wave, then channel balancing and normalizing the entire
show in one run with Cooledit Pro. When re-cutting the tracks I started each
track with the actual music, not with the banter preceding each song.
A gap at the beginning of track one from the original torrent is also fixed.
I also created the artwork included.

3. New Year's Day
4. Pride (In The Name Of Love)
5. Angel Of Harlem
6. When Love Comes To Town
7. Love Rescue Me
 

NOTE: The sound is somewhat distant and clarity could be better.  While definitely not one of the better audience recordings from the Lovetown Tour, this bootleg is certainly listenable.  There is an obvious edit between "One Tree Hill" and "People Get Ready" and between the main set and the encore.  Approximately the first 30 seconds of "Bad" are lost at the beginning of Disc 2.  There is a recurring ticking noise during the end of "Pride" and the first half of "Angel of Harlem" and a high-pitched whining noise between the songs.  According to U2 Live: A Concert Documentary, "With Or Without You" and "40" were played at this concert...they are not included on this bootleg.

Comments: This recording misses somewhat the clarity and crispness necessary to become a good or better rating. Maybe if it was transferred from a lower generation tape the background noise level would be lower and clarity or crispness significantly better. Anyway, it is still far from being annoying and a nice find for a collector of rare Lovetown material.

Total runtime: 1:45:21

The sound is not the best, but it is clear.  Hiss is evident at all volumes.  The last second of disc 1 track 10 finishes at the very beginning of the following track with a sudden cut at that point.  The same thing happens on disc 2 tracks 5 and 6 with both tracks starting with an apparent cut.  The audience is prevalent throughout but not bad during songs for the most part, with a couple of extremely irritating banshees close to the taper.  No clicks or pops noticed during any of the tracks.

On the plus side, it's a fun performance.  U2 is still young and on top of the world (or down under it as the case may be).  The music is not muffled or weak, the singing is close, if it had more bass and less banshee it would be good.
