I am 38 years old; I was a high school senior when I saw this show in Pittsburgh. The set was very bare - in fact, at that time U2 was known for having few gimmicks in their shows (no colored lights, etc), but it was all Bono and the Edge.

What stands out in my memory is towards the end of the show Bono announced that a young person (Beth something) had died in a car accident on the way to the show that evening. He dedicated "Amazing Grace" in her memory, then the whole crowd sang along. He picked up the stage light and began shining it on the crowd as they sang a capella.

I was hooked, and have been ever since.
