|Posted by Steve-O on Wed - Mar 8 - 11:28am:
I was on a U2 message board today and someone mentioned that U2 played at One Block West way back in the early days. I have no idea on the date. Is there anyone that can confirm this?

I'm no expert but I believe that their first appearance here was at The Uptown Theatre as part of KY102's Catch A Rising Star series.
The Ramones and The Police did play at One Block West in the '70s.

Yeah I am aware of that show. The guy on this other website said he remembers a local radio station broadcast the entire show. He may be confused with the Uptown show. Is there a possibility, though, they played One Block West on April 5th? That was on "off day".
I have them playing 7 dates in KC:
April 06, 1981: Uptown Theater
February 25, 1982: Uptown Theater
June 08, 1983: Memorial Hall
October 26, 1987: Kemper Arena
October 18, 1992: Arrowhead Stadium
May 19, 1997: Arrowhead Stadium
November 27, 2001: Kemper Arena

saw U2 at the uptown for one dollar and 2 cents as part of the aformentioned concert series. If U2 played One Block West I missed it. OBW did host a laundy list of top artist.
