// About 'Under a Blood Red Sky'
Under a Blood Red Sky is a live album, produced by Jimmy Iovine. It was released in 1983. It helped establish U2's reputation as a remarkable live band. It consists of live recordings from three shows on the band's War tour. Although billed as "live from Red Rocks", only two of the tracks on the disc were recorded there.
Highlights include a fiery rendition of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" (famously introduced by Bono with the words, "this is not a rebel song") and a jaunty run-through of the B-side "Party Girl" (played sloppily but enthusiastically in the pouring rain).
An accompanying concert film of the same name was also released at the same time as the album. Unlike the album, it was recorded entirely at the dramatic outdoor Red Rocks Amphitheatre on June 5, 1983.
