"As a performer, I understand it takes a picture of me with the Pope or a president to get debt cancellation onto the front pages. Otherwise it's just too obscure a melody line." — Bono

Comments: U2 play a fund raising festival for Hot Press magazine. Rory Gallagher is the headliner, and others on the bill include Paul Brady, Shakin' Pyramids and Big Self. Both Simple Minds and De Dannan had also initally been slated to perform, but in the end, neither did.

The event had hoped to draw a crowd of 10,000 but ended up with about half that amount.

Bono brings his then fiancée, Alison Stewart, on stage during "11 O'Clock Tick Tock."
