U2 'US Festival 1983' Appearance Featured on Upcoming DVD

Looking for ideas for Christmas presents?

U2 are among the acts featured on the upcoming DVD release, US Festival 1983: Days 1-3, due for release worldwide on Dec. 3.

Held on Memorial Day of 1983, the US Festival (US is an acronym for "United Us in Song") was a massive three-day celebration of music and culture sponsored by Steve Wozniak, formerly of Apple Inc. Wozniak financed the follow-up to the 1982 inaugural event himself, to the tune of approximately $10 million. A pre-cursor to festivals held today, the US Festivals were intended to be the celebration of evolving technologies, including a marriage of music, computers, television and people.

The DVD includes U2's performance of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" and "The Electric Co." and features performances by INXS, Stevie Nicks and The Clash's final performance with Mick Jones.
