U2's Sunday Bloody Sunday Video From US Festival DVD Released
Held on Memorial Day of 1983, the US Festival (US is an acronym for "Unite Us In Song") was a massive three-day celebration of music and culture sponsored by Steve Wozniak, formerly of Apple Computer. Wozniak financed the follow-up to the 1982 inaugural event himself, to the tune of approximately 10 million dollars.
A pre-cursor to festivals held today, the US Festivals were intended to be the celebration of evolving technologies, including a marriage of music, computers, television and people.
"Us Festival 1983: Days 1 – 3" includes the 3 days of New Wave, Heavy Metal and Rock in 1983 with performances from U2, The Clash, Judas Priest, Scorpions, Stevie Nicks, INXS, Men At Work, Stray Cats, Triumph, Missing Persons and more.
The DVD includes the legendary U2 performance of "Sunday Bloody Sunday", The Clash's final performance with Mick Jones, a seminal performance for INXS in the US, and many other landmark moments in music history.
