U2 ??/??/87
Justin Herman Plaza, San Francisco, CA
Set I
Set II
"All Along the Watchtower", from the film Rattle & Hum, was recorded here in front of what many consider to be the ugliest sculpture in the city. Bono spray painted "Rock & Roll" & "Stop the Traffic" on the sculpture as vehicles on the overhead highways were stopping to watch. They were required to make a formal apology and charges were almost filed against Bono. I was lucky to be there as I was working at Winterland at the time as a t-shirt artist and the boss came out and said, "U2 is going to play a few blocks away at the Plaza, go on down!". So, the whole place dropped what they were doing and we ran down there in time to catch this unannounced freebie!
