December 13, 1980 – Boston, Massachusetts, USA – The Paradise

11 O’Clock Tick Tock, An Cat Dubh, Into The Heart, Another Time Another Place, Electric Co., Things To Make And Do, Twilight, I Will Follow. Encore(s): 11 O’Clock Tick Tock, Out Of Control.
With around 150 people in attendance for U2’s set (even though the capacity is 500), the crowd is highly enthusiastic and calls for not just one encore (which was 11 O’Clock Tick Tock) but two (which was Out Of Control). By the time main act Barooga take the stage, only 40 audience members are left, some of whom are U2 and their crew. This unheard of response for an opening act began Boston’s long love affair with U2 in their new “home away from home”.
