06/03/1983 Salt Palace Assembly Hall - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA
Gloria, An Cat Dubh / Into the Heart, Surrender, Two Hearts Beat as One, Sunday Bloody Sunday, October, New Year's Day, Party Girl, 40
comment: Setlist is incomplete, though Gloria is known to have opened. Many rumours abound regarding this show. Claims that this show was a disaster and U2 vowed to never return to Utah appear to be false. There are also reports that U2 played a new song at this show, possibly the unknown song rehearsed during the soundcheck in Minneapolis on 22 May 1983, though contrary to some reports, this new song definitely was not Pride as that song was not created until November 1983. It is also possible that the new song was either The Refugee or Drowning Man, two songs with no known live performances but that the Deseret News's report alleges were performed at this show. The Deseret News also claims that this show consisted of 16 songs. Out Of Control may have been played; there is conflicting information on whether or not it was in the set, and for this reason, we currently do not list it in the above incomplete setlist.

06/05/1983 Red Rocks Ampitheater - Denver, Colorado, USA

comment: Recorded and released as 'U2 Live At Red Rocks: Under A Blood Red Sky'. Every song except I Fall Down has been released on video. The Alarm were scheduled to be the support act but their set was cancelled due to bad weather. U2 went ahead despite the rain.

06/06/1983 CU Events Center - Boulder, Colorado, USA
Gloria, I Threw a Brick Through a Window, A Day Without Me / Rocky Mountain High (snippet), An Cat Dubh / Into the Heart, New Year's Day, Surrender / Billie Jean (snippet), Two Hearts Beat as One, Seconds, Sunday Bloody Sunday, The Cry / The Electric Co. / Send in the Clowns (snippet), A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall (with The Alarm)
encores: 11 O'Clock Tick Tock, I Will Follow, 40
comment: A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall performed with The Alarm. This show was added to the schedule as a backup in case the Red Rocks concert and film shoot was either cancelled or spoiled by heavy rain. Red Rocks went down in history as a tremendous success, and this show was played anyway as a present to local U2 fans. Admission was free.

06/07/1983 Cotillion Ballroom - Wichita, Kansas, USA
setlist not available
comment: This show was a very late cancellation when the previous night's show in Boulder, Colorado was added to the tour schedule in case the Red Rocks film shoot went awry. U2 arrived in Kansas City from Colorado on this evening (for the next night's show) and saw Star Wars: Return of the Jedi at a movie theatre.

encores: Party Girl, 11 O'Clock Tick Tock / Drowning Man (snippet), I Will Follow, 40
comment: The venue is in Kansas City, Kansas, not Kansas City, Missouri; as a result of the cancellation of the previous night's gig in Wichita, this show is the only time U2 have performed in Kansas to date.

encores: Party Girl, 11 O'Clock Tick Tock, I Will Follow, 40
comment: U2's first headlining performance in an arena. Sunday Bloody Sunday is halted during the drum into while Bono asks the audience to move back. As usual Bono climbs a balcony during The Electric Co., and he is grabbed and chased by numerous fans up there. He is still trying to make his way down to the stage as the band begin I Fall Down, and is forced to jump twenty feet to the floor to escape the chasing fans. The people on the floor try to grab him, and a fight nearly breaks out as he pushes past a man in his rush to return to the stage. Dennis Sheehan comes to his aid and pulls him back up, though both of their clothing is torn. After the concert Bono is lambasted by the band and tour crew for continuing his climbing antics after multiple warnings.
