On this date in 1983 the Us Festival Concluded in Devore..right about where the amphitheater is there now.
You can see the complete lineup for all 3 days below.
I was there, backstage for most of the day.
I was trying to do interviews with the bands, but the backstage area was complete chaos...so not many interviews were getting done.
U2 had so many requests they said no to all of them. I found a way to sneak from the press area back into the band area and found U2's manager. I had met him before on a previous U2 tour. He apologized for turning down all interviews, but invited me into the dressing room to say hi to the band, which I did. Because time was tight that day I only hung out for a couple of minutes and started to leave when the manager told me we could watch the set from the side of the stage.....
You might even see me in one of the videos below....but you might not want to take your eyes off the band...this was an EPIC U2 performance!
