I’m surely not the first to do this, but I want to keep my own record of all the U2 Concerts in Australia. There were never many (particularly in Adelaide), so it’s amazing to find many photographs or articles.
Here is the First U2 Concert in Australia. I, unfortunately due to financial constraints, did not make it to the 1993 concert. I remember selling my camera gear, used in 1992 at the Adelaide Grandprix, to get the funds – but didn’t raise enough. Thankfully there were more concerts…
Tour: Zoo TV Zoomerang
Venue: (Allianz) Sydney Football Stadium
Location: Sydney, Australia
Date: 26 November 1993
Maybe this is the first time you have seen this, but the U2Shrine has existed for about 20 years!
I was hosting all the photos within my site. Somehow it took me forever to work out that the U2Shrine deserved better.
Much of the text will now be replaced with photographs of the mountain of paraphernalia – including records, magazines, newspaper clippings and more – making it easy viewing for everyone. I may sell some of my collection.
One of eleven photographs from the Adelaide U2 Concert on November 16th 2006. Taken by a friend who was about one metre from the stage and got some decent shots from a mobile phone. Yes, they are all bit blurry. Bono did ask the crowd to get out the mobile phones to text makepovertyhistory.org. Seems some phones had cameras…I cropped this selection down to 1024×768. Enjoy.
