The First U2 Concert in Australia

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…
