How many of you were at the original Joshua Tree tour?

I saw them in Pittsburgh in October 1987. It was my first bootleg recording of a U2 show. My brother and I ended up in the 7th row middle thanks to my subscription to the U2 World Service. Awesome night.

Oct. 20 University of Iowa, Iowa City Bought a recordable cassette player and made a "bootleg" of show. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a recording of myself and my friends singing every song wit

The Joshua Tree tour was my first U2 show. They played CNE Stadium on a frigid October night in 1987. For those unfamiliar with CNE stadium, it was build on the shore of Lake Ontario, and was notorious for the cool breezes that blew through it. This was wonderful during shows on hot summer nights, not so much on an already mild day in October! Unfortunately, my friend and I learned this the hard way, dressed only in denim jackets, jeans and t-shirts. Fortunately for us, I was a rather charming 19 year-old at the time, and we convinced the two lovely ladies seated next to us to share the spiced rum they'd smuggled into the stadium with us, which kept us warm most of the night. I never got their names, but these two lovely young ladies certainly helped enhance the evening for us!

Awesome! I was at that show as well! You've reminded me how damn cold it was.

I'll never forget the how the show opened - that long instrumental bit, the curtain dropping revealing the Joshua Tree, lights flashing and Edge's guitar kicking in. Chills just thinking about it! Unforgettable! Can't wait to see them in Toronto next month.

I saw them at the Meadowlands in May 1987. It was a day or so after I came home from my freshman year of college. I had just finished exams and it was all one big, happy blur.
