U2 “October / New Year’s Day” Live From Red Rocks Amphitheater - Joe’s Garage June 6th

On this date in 1983, U2 played the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado. This iconic performance was later released as a concert film called “Under a Blood Red Sky.” The album by the same name actually featured recordings from three different U2 shows including the Red Rocks concert. Today I played the “Under A Blood Red Sky” album version of “New Year’s Day” which was actually recorded that same year in Germany. Here is the full version that was shot at Red Rocks and includes the song “October.”
