encores: 40
comment: Last performance of Hawkmoon 269, and its only performance outside Australia. This concert came to a premature close because of serious problems with Bono's voice that manifested especially seriously in God Part II. Concerts for the next two nights were cancelled and four replacement shows were performed early in January 1990 in Rotterdam. Because of the premature conclusion of the show, the usual encore with BB King and his band was not played, and accordingly this is the only Lovetown gig at which Angel Of Harlem, When Love Comes To Town, and Love Rescue Me were not performed.

12/19/1989 Rai Europa Hal - Amsterdam, Netherlands
setlist not available
comment: Concert cancelled due to Bono suffering severe vocal problems. A series of replacement concerts were performed in Rotterdam in January 1990.

12/20/1989 Rai Europa Hal - Amsterdam, Netherlands

encores: Angel Of Harlem / Suspicious Minds (snippet), When Love Comes To Town, Love Rescue Me, With Or Without You / Shine Like Stars (snippet), 40
comment: The verse Bono sings at the end of One Tree Hill is completely improvised; it is not a snippet. Part of a William Wordsworth poem is read at the start of Where The Streets Have No Name in tribute to the recently deceased Irish poet Samuel Beckett. This show features the first use of God Part II as an opener - the only other time it takes this role is on 5 January 1990 in Rotterdam.
