This one's taken from a first gen copy of a pro shot master video recorded for
Dutch television. (NOT from one of the silver CD bootlegs of this gig that are in
existence.) To my knowledge this video never aired though. It's their first
(and only) performance in the city of The Hague and the sixth show in The
Netherlands. There were 500 in attendance.
After Into The Heart Bono mentions the band's first visit to Amsterdam: "We
played a place called the milky-something, a very, very strange place." (The
Milkyway 10/15/81, second performance ever outside of Ireland and England.)
During I Will Follow Bono is late for the second verse because he gets tangled
up in his microphone wire.
The last track starts with Adam extensively rehearsing the bass section between
An Cath Dubh and Into The Heart and towards the end Edge comes in to
improvise a bit, resulting in what would later become Fire.

Not to be missed by any fan who likes the early live material I'd say.
