Not that the U2 frontman is overly involved. “If the solar was shining we’d look similar to some other band,” he muses backstage, because the rain lashes the poor sods huddled beneath polythene sheets within the stands of Colorado’s Crimson Rocks Amphitheatre. And looking out like some other band would by no means do. 

On this night time U2 don’t appear to be some other band. Nor do they sound like some other band. Nor, for the file, do they clamber into a large lemon, gown up because the Village Individuals, put in a prank name to the US president, drag Salman Rushdie out of hiding or preach towards apartheid. Such gimmicks would come quickly sufficient, however on June 5, 1983, U2 have been merely a rattling good rock’n’roll band.
