U2 is one of those bands that really doesn't require much of an introduction, but I just have a couple things to say about my selection for Episode 12. This concert took place during the beginning of U2's Joshua Tree tour which coincided with the release of probably their most legendary CD.
With the worldwide success of the CD and tour, U2 was catapulted from mere super band to mega band status and have only continued upward since. This recording is easily one of the best sounding that I have heard and the set list covers many of their biggest hits during that period. While there is nothing like seeing a U2 performance live, here is a recording that gives you the next best thing without having to stand in line for hours to get tickets.
