This show was not part of their regular War Tour. It came about after the drizzling rain famously threatened to cancel the show the night before at Red Rocks. The opening acts, The Divinyls and The Alarm did not play at the Red Rocks show due to the weather. I remember Barry Fey, the Colorado-based promoter who put on the show at Red Rocks, coming out and saying something like, "Neil Diamond canceled because of weather, but not U2." Then he said assigned seating no longer mattered, so the entire crowd surged forward. Then Bono or someone announced there would be an added concert the following night, June 6, at the Coors Events Center at CU. Free to anyone who had a REd Rocks ticket. And so The Divinyls and The Alarm opened that show at Coors. Frankly, after the religious experience at Red Rocks, the Coors show was a letdown. But I wasn't complaining then, or now.
