40 – U2 Live at Red Rocks – June 5, 1983

The final song at Red Rocks on June 5, 1983 was “40”. Bono remarks in “U2 by U2” that at the end of every concert in the War tour, the crowd would sing the refrain “How long to sing this song? How long to sing this song?” However that night, the crowd was both small and freezing and no one was singing until their tour manager Dennis Sheehan grabbed a mike, hid behind the barrier and tried to get the crowd to sing, which they slowly did.

Tomorrow, a few last comments.
