On November 7th, 1983, U2 released the fantastic live album, Under a Blood Red Sky, an 8 song live album that defined U2 as a live act (yet people were still surprised when U2 played Live-Aid 2 years later).  The album consists of live recordings from three shows on the band’s War Tour.

Below, you can watch the accompanying concert film U2 Live at Red Rocks: Under a Blood Red Sky, whose release helped establish U2’s reputation for putting pathos into their live performances, and one particular performance—that of the track “Sunday Bloody Sunday”, is considered by some to be of the greatest moments in Rock and Roll.
