'You may leave your seats now, Boston”

From the audio streaming at Wolfgang's. This is a great War Tour show played just 1 month before Red Rocks, with the same exact songs, though not quite the exact order. Great audience, great performance, excellent recording.

Setlist:  http://u2tours.com/detail.src?ID=19830506


Out Of Control
Orpheum Theater
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
1983-05-06

You may leave your seats now, Boston
This is Out Of Control
Ooo
Yeah

Monday morning
Eighteen years of dawning
I say how long, how long
I say how long, how long

It was one dull dawning
Woke the world with bawling
I was so sad, so sad
They were so glad

I was of the feeling it was out of control / Out of control
You say, out of control / Out of control
Um-ho-ho-ho-oh-oh-oh-ho-ho

Boys and girls
Go to school and girls
They make children
But not like this one

I was of the feeling it was out of control / Out of control
You say, out of control / Out of control
Um-ho-ho-ho-oh-oh-oh-ho-ho

Do you know who this is?
This is The Edge

I was of the feeling it was out of control / Out of control
You say, out of control /  :-*
Um-ho-ho-ho-um-oh-oh-ho-ho

Somebody strike a match
I think it’s the custom here
I can’t stand up
You won’t sit down
I won’t give up
I won’t give up
Shh
It’s out of control
It’s out of control
Ooo, out of control

I fought fate
There's blood at the garden gate
The man said childhood
It's in his childhood

One day I'll die
The choice will not be mine
Will it be too late, too late
You can't fight fate

I was of the feeling it was out of control / Out of control
You say, it was out of control / Out of control
Um-ho-ho-ho-oh-oh-oh-ho-ho

Thank you

I look into his eyes
They’re closed but I see something
The teacher told me why
I laugh when old men cry

My body grows and grows
That frightens me, you know
The old man tried to walk me home
I thought he should have known

Twilight...lost my way
Twilight...darkened day
Twilight...lost my way
Twilight...I lost my way

In the shadow boy meets man / Shadow
In the shadow boy meets man / Shadow
In the shadow boy meets man / Shadow
In the shadow boy meets man / Shadow

Huh
Man?

Feeling, holding
Then he said

I’m running in the rain
I saw a late night play
He’s all, he’s everything
I’m soaking through the skin, ah-ha

Twilight...darkened day
Twilight
Twilight...dreaming a
Twilight...I lost my way

I lost my way
Can’t find my way
Can’t find your way

Twilight...lost my way
Twilight
Twilight...darkened day
Twilight...I lost my way...uh

In the shadow boy meets man / Shadow
In the shadow boy meets man / Shadow
In the shadow boy meets man / Shadow
In the shadow boy meets man / Shadow

Ah...uh, uh, uh

Thank you
It’s always...
It’s...it's always nice to play for a home crowd

Something, something we haven’t played for a year
We play for you tonight
An Cat Dubh, the black cat

Say goodnight
She waits for me to put out the light
When I'm still
She waits to break my will

Yo-oh-oh-oh-ho, yo-ho-ho
Yo-ho-ho-ho, yo-ho-ho
Yes and I know the truth about you
She-cat

When I’m seeing lights
A blackbird makes a violent sight
When she is done
Aw she sleeps beside the one

Yo-oh-oh-oh-ho, yo-ho-ho
Yo-ho-ho-ho, yo-oh-ho
Yes and I know the truth about you
She-cat

Bass player, uh

Where’ve you gone?
It’s been too long
You’ve been hiding away from me
And we’ve been waiting
We’ve been waiting too long
For you
For you

Into the heart
Of a child
I stay awhile
But I can go back

Into the heart
Of a child
I can smile
I can see my way

Into the heart
Into the heart of a child
I can go back
I can stay awhile

Into the heart
To the heart of a child
Yeah-hey-yeah...wo-ho
Into the heart

Tonight
Wait for tonight

Thank you

Surrender
Orpheum Theater
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
1983-05-06

From an LP titled, War
A song titled, Surrender

Will you dance with me?

Oh, the city’s alight
With lovers and lies, bright blue eyes
Oh, the city is bright
It's brighter than day tonight

Surrender, surrender
Oh, oh, oh, child
Oh, oh, oh, child
Surrender, surrender
Leave me alone, child
Call me home, child
Uh, bring it up

Sadie said she couldn't work out
What it was all about
And so she let go
Now Sadie's on the street
And the people she meets you know

She tried to be a good girl and a good wife
Raise a good family, lead a good life
It’s not good enough!
She got herself up on the 48th floor
And gotta find out, find out what she’s living for

Surrender, surrender
Surrender, surrender
Leave me alone, child
Leave me alone, child


It could be tonight
It won’t be tomorrow
It could be tonight
Tonight...
Yeah, huh

Oh, the city's a fire
A passionate flame
Knows me by name
Oh, the city's desire
To take me for more and more

It's in the street getting under my feet
It's in the air, it's everywhere I look for you
Well it's in the things I do and say
And if I want to live I’ve got to die to myself someday

Wo-oh-oh-... sing for me
Wo-oh-oh-... sing for me
Wo-oh-oh-.. will you take me on your shoulders?
Wo-oh-oh-... sing for me
Wo-oh-oh-... sing it
Wo-oh-oh-... we’re going home now
Wo-oh-oh-... thank you
Wo-oh-oh-...
Wo-oh-oh-...

Surrender, surrender

Two Hearts Beat As One
Orpheum Theater
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
1983-05-06

Two Hearts Beat As One

Pick it up, bass man
Beat-em...ooo

I don't know
I don't know which side I'm on
I don't know my right from left
Or my right from wrong

They say I'm a fool
They say I'm nothing
But if I'm a fool for you
Ho, that's something

Two hearts beat as one / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
Two hearts beat as one / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
Two hearts

I can’t stop to dance
Maybe this is my last chance
I said, I can’t stop to dance
Maybe this is my last chance

Two hearts beat as one / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
Two hearts beat as one / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
Two hearts

Larry
Beat on black, beat on white
Beat on everything tonight
Ooo

I don’t know
How to say what’s got to be said
I don’t know if it’s black or white
There’s others see it red
I don’t get the answers right
I’ll leave that to you
Is this love out of fashion?
Or is it the time of year?
Are these words distraction
To the words you wanna hear

Two hearts beat as one / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
Two hearts beat as one / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
I try to spit it out, I try to explain / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
The way I feel for you / Hearts, hearts, hearts, hearts, beat as one
Two hearts

Ready partner swing 'round
Bass player!
Ooo-hoo
Pick it up, Chuck
Pick it up, ooo
Ooo... ooo... ooo
Shimmy now

Twist, twist, like you did last night
Shh
Let’s twist again, like we did last summer
Oh let’s twist again, like we did last year
Do you remember the words?
I don’t
Do you remember the words?
Let’s twist again…

Hey, hold it, hey, let’s listen to this
Shh
I promise you you’re going to sing tonight
Let’s…

Do you re… the words
They don’t remember the words
Said I can’t stop to dance
Maybe, this is my last chance
You said you couldn’t remember the words
I said, I can’t stop to dance
Maybe, this is my last chance
I said, I can’t stop to dance
Maybe, this is my last chance
I said, I can’t stop to dance
Maybe, this is my last chance
Can’t stop to dance

Thank you

Seconds
Orpheum Theater
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
1983-05-06

A song called, Seconds

It takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, oh-oh-oh
It takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, oh-oh-oh
Say bye-bye
Where you going to now?


Lightning flashes across the sky
East to west, do or die
Like a thief in the night
Seeing the world by candlelight


Fall, the rise and
Fall, the rise and

In an apartment on Times Square
You can assemble them anywhere
Held to ransom, hell to pay
A revolution every day

U.S.S.R., D.D.R.
London, New York, Peking
It's the puppets
The puppets pull the strings

Fall, the rise and
Fall, the rise and

Say goodbye, say goodbye
Say goodbye, say goodbye
Say goodbye
Yeah

Takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, oh-oh-oh
Push the button and pull the plug
Say goodbye, oh-oh-oh

Fall…yeah this is the rise and fall of all of us / The rise and
Fall…yeah the rise and fall / The rise and

And they're doing the atomic bomb
Do they know where the dance comes from
Yes, they're doing the atomic bomb
And they need you to sing along

Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Orpheum Theater
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
1983-05-06

Sunday Bloody Sunday

Mmm, ho-oh
Oh-oh-oh-ho-oh

I can't believe the news today
I can't close my eyes and make it go away
How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long, how long?
Tonight we can be as one
Tonight

Broken bottles under children's feet
And bodies strewn across the dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
Puts my back up, my back up against the wall

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday bloody Sunday / Sunday, bloody Sunday
Alright, let’s go

And it’s true we are to moon
There's many lost, tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long, how long?
Tonight
We can be as one
Tonight
Tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight, break it up
Give it our show

No more, sing, sing
No more
No more
No more
Wipe your tears away
Wipe your tears away
Wipe your blood shot eyes / Sunday, bloody Sunday
Wipe your tears away / Sunday, bloody Sunday

Sunday, bloody Sunday / Sunday, bloody Sunday
Shh
Sunday, bloody Sunday / Sunday, bloody Sunday
I’m so sick of it!

And the battle just begun
There’s many lost, tell me who has won?
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die

The real battle yet begun / Sunday, bloody Sunday
To claim the victory Jesus won / Sunday, bloody Sunday
On
Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

The Cry / Electric Co.
Orpheum Theater
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
1983-05-06

Somebody cry, somebody cry, somebody cry
Will somebody try, somebody try, somebody try something quick
Don’t you look back, don’t you look back, never look back
Will somebody cry, somebody try, somebody die
Well I can’t see why or what for

Pick it up
Ah-ooo...
Ah-ooo
Break it up

Boy, stupid boy
Don't sit at the table until you're able to
Toy, broken toy
You shout and shout, you’re inside out

Till you don't know
Electric Co. / Electric Co.
Till you don't know / Electric Co.
Electric Co.
Break it up

Red, running red
When you play for real, toy could feel
A hole in your head
You go in shock, you’re spoon fed

Till you don't know
Electric Co. / Electric Co.
Till you don't know / Electric Co.
Electric Co.
Three-four
Pick it up, Chuck

Where’s that white flag?
I want that white flag
Pass me the white flag
Shh
Two, three, four
Two, three, four
Why must I hide from myself
When I need the crowd
Bring on the crowd
I love this crowd

This is my hometown
Help me, help me

But if you don't know
Electric Co. / Electric Co.
If you don't know / Electric Co.
Electric Co.
But if you don't know
Electric Co. / Electric Co.
If you don't know / Electric Co.
Electric Co.

I Fall Down
Orpheum Theater
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
1983-05-06

This song…song…is about trying
Trying, maybe failing, but at least trying
I remember 3, maybe it’s more, 3, 4, 5 years ago
When we were a garage band from garage land
We sent off letters to people in record companies
To people in radio stations
Which is, John I’m getting nowhere
I hope to get to somewhere, someday

I Fall Down

Julie say
John I’m getting nowhere
I wrote this letter
Hope to get some employment someday

I wanna get up
When I wake up
Oh when I get up
I fall down
I fall

Julie say something
Julie say you’re sorry
You committed a crime
But you don’t even know what you’ve done

You’re gonna walk in the sun
And the wind and the rain
Never walk back again

But I fall down
I’m falling down
I fall down
When you fall down

Julie say
John, my heart is on my sleeve
I’ve got this feeling, I’ve got this faith
You know I can believe

I’m gonna get up
When I wake up
When I get up

I fall down
I’m falling down
I fall down
When you fall down
But I can’t play guitar
I can take it far
No I can’t play guitar
But I can try
I can try
Can try
I can try
I fall down
I fall down
You pick me up
You pick me up

You go on

New Year’s Day
Orpheum Theater
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
1983-05-06

Yeah-ho-ho

All is quiet on New Year's Day
A world in white gets underway
I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
And nothing changes on New Year's Day
On New Year’s Day

I will be with you again
I will be with you again 
I, I will

Under a blood red sky
A crowd has gathered in black and white
Arms entwined, the chosen few
The newspapers says, says,
Say it's true, it’s true
And we can break through
Though torn in two, we can be one

I, I will begin again
I, I will begin again

Yea-ho, oh-oh-oh

Bu-la-ha, bu-la ha
Bu-la-da-da-da

I will be with you again
I will be with you again
I will be with you again
I will be with you again

Thank you

Anywhere…hold me up

No one
No one is blinder

Who will not see

Sing for me
No one
Not me, me
Show me, open my eyes

A Day Without Me
Orpheum Theater
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
1983-05-06

Thank you for everything
Good night
A Day Without Me
Beat ‘em

Started a landslide in my ego
Look from the outside to a world I left behind
I’m dreaming, you’re awake
If I was sleeping, what’s at stake?
A day without me

Whatever the feelings
I keep feeling
What are the feelings
You left behind?

A day without me

Hold it!

Started a landslide in my ego
Look from the outside to a world I left behind
In a world I left behind
Shed a tear and they go home
In a world I left behind
Wipe their eyes and they go home
Ya-ho-ho-ho

Bo-bo
Bo-bo-bo
Bo-bo-bo
Bo-bo-bo

Bo-bo-hey
Bo-bo-bo
Bo-bo-bo
Bo-bo-bo

Thank you, good night
