This was my second U2 gig, the first was when they played support to The Police during the summer of 1980. But the TV Club was electric, it felt like 1,000 people in a small venue that exploded when they came on stage.

Spot on Johnh. It was at the top of Harcourt Street off the South Circular. And are you sure it wasn't 2.50 rather than 3.50?

This was my first U2 gig, still have the ticket stub No.275,all of £3.50 in. I think Microdisney supported, if so they were awful. The show was super, 3 things have stayed with me about this gig, (1). The TV Club was somewhere on the southside, I had to ask my Dad how to get there (He'd gone there in the 50's or something). (2). It was the first time I saw a Gibson Explorer (Cool). (3). 11 O'Clock Tick Tock, never heard anything like it before or since, by todays standard the sound was probably poor but that riff !! ,can you hear it. I still can 30 years later. Magnificent !!! Dublin wasn't great in the 80's but nights like this let us live and breathe a bit.
