Madison Square Garden
I flew over from England to see the band as I was unable to get tickets to their shows in England. The weather was cold in New York, the tickets were cheap, and we were behind the band-which was weird. I hadn't heard of The Pixies at the time-pre-internet-so I went to the souvenir shop. I bought a couple of t-shirts which I still have-i have just worn one to the gig at Twickenham in 2017. I also remember that they were selling U2 condoms! As to the gig, I can't remember a great deal, but I do remember the comment about 'Angel of Harlem'. I've seen them many times since and they still put on a fantastic show.
Angel of Harlem
I recall Bono stating "We've been waiting 5 years to play this song in this arena" before U2 launched into Angel of Harlem for the 1st time in NYC. Great concert. Madison Square Garden is always magical. It was memorable for me as it was the first of many U2 concerts my future wife and I would attend together.
