U2 – The Virtual Road: Live at Red Rocks Under A Blood Red Sky [previously unreleased remastered 2021]
U2 are being streaming on YouTube a series of concerts titled “The Virtual Road”, and also there’s digital audio versions. “Live At Red Rocks” includes a number of songs taken from the video filmed in Denver, CO. Although a live album was released in 1983 to accompany the original video, the songs on that live album were mostly taken from other performances, and thus this is the first time these songs have been released in an audio format.
These have been remastered 2021, and are mixed so that the EP plays continuous with no fade out between tracks, even though these songs did not follow each other in concert.
This all tracks are taken from the June 6, 1983 show at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The original Under A Blood Red Sky album contained only two tracks from the Denver performance, “Party Girl” and “Gloria,” with the remainder of tracks being taken from shows elsewhere, thus the bulk of the songs from Denver have only been released in a video format prior to this.
At this time no physical release is planned for ‘The Virtual Road: Live at Red Rocks Under A Blood Red Sky’, or if it will be available for a limited time, so better grab this while it’s available.
U2 at their prime.
