there's a small error near the end. it  says that U2 played the 2nd day (Van Halen day) of the 1983 US Festival. They actually played on Day #3 (David Bowie day).

It seems like it's not the column author's fault, but the book author's.

just letting you know; feel free to delete this if you wish.

"Bono did not want U2 playing on the same day as The Clash, preferring to play on the same day as Van Halen. In the end, U2 played at the end of day three of the festival." It doesn't say they played Day 2 it says U2 "preferred to play on the same day as Van Halen. In the end, U2 played at the end of Day 3." So the book doesn't say they played on Day two. Unless I'm missing something here.

You're reading a corrected version of the article.
