Sadly, I did shift from curiosity into fan during Joshua Tree, but it was after the local show had happened or was sold out... so Zoo TV was my first time seeing them live.

Tarrant County Convention Center (Ft. Worth) Nov 24, 1987... 'Love' came to town for the first time...

 

So funny, I remember being so disappointed when the first show sold out (Smithereens opened) and as my mate and I were getting into the car from the ticketron(?) seller location, the local radio DJ said, "second show added"... We rushed back in and were 3rd in line. Got row 17 floor, but thought bummer that "only BB King" is opening this show.

 

Oh, how I would love to relive that night live instead of watching for myself on the Rattle & Hum video in the audience. So special. Was also the first date with my wife - hitting 28 years now - see you all in H-town and Toronto this year.

YES!  9/25/1987.  Philadelphia PA.  Memorable moments 1. When Bullet the Blue Sky started....a commercial jet I guess was on it's landing approach and flew dead center over the stage coming from behind it.  2. He let somebody on stage to play his guitar for a song and then, who could forget these words?  "Does anybody else want to play my guitar?   Bruce Springsteen....Bruce Springsteen wants to play my guitar!....I guess you know him?"  and the played Stand By Me.  That was 29 1/2 years ago and still burned into my memory banks!

14 November 1987.  Oakland Coliseum.  

 

Saw Armand Vaillancourt spray paint on U2's backdrop after Bono spray painted on his sculpture a few days earlier. 

 

Just Awesome.
