Comments: U2 launch the Joshua Tree tour. Prior to the show, promoter Barry Fey reads a statement explaining why U2 is playing in Arizona when other artists have boycotted the state over Governor Evan Mecham's decision to rescind the Martin Luther King holiday. Bono loses his voice early in the show, but the crowd delightfully fills in for him, singing even the new songs with no trouble.


Thanks to @atU2 for the reminder
