Wow. Can you list all 60 shows? Damn, what many consider the greatest rock show in history and you were there! So, how many U2 albums did you have before the Red Rocks show and what were your expectations for the show? Had you ever seen a show at Red Rocks before that? When did you first hear about U2 and become a fan? Are you on the Red Rocks video? What part of the venue were you in? How wet and cold did you get? Was this your first concert ever, or just your first U2 concert? Were you born and raised in Colorado?

Sorry for all the questions, but its such an iconic show, and its so rare to have contact with anyone that was actually there at the show.

Two songs, Party Girl and Gloria, were taken from the Red Rocks show. 11'Oclock Tick Tock was from Boston. The other 5 songs came from an August 1983 show in Germany.
