Hawkmoon 269 was played for the final time, making it the only performance outside of Australia. This concert came to a premature close due to serious problems with Bono’s voice that were especially manifested in God Part II. Concerts for the next two nights were cancelled and four replacement shows were performed early in January 1990 in Rotterdam. Also, the band decided to refund every single ticket for this concert due to Bono’s mishap. Due to the premature conclusion of the show, the usual encore with B.B. King and his band was not played, and accordingly this was the only Lovetown gig at which Angel Of Harlem, When Love Comes To Town, and Love Rescue Me were not performed.
