Tomorrow (4:37)

Cover of The Complete Tour Rarities

From The Complete Tour Rarities and 37 other releases

“Tomorrow” is the sixth track on U2’s 1981 album, October. Its lyrics are a description of Bono’s mother’s funeral. The song was later rerecorded by Bono and Adam Clayton, for release in the Common Ground: Voices of Modern Irish Music album.

U2 initially did not perform “Tomorrow”. Its live debut came over halfway through the October Tour when the band performed a hometown concert on 26 January 1982 in Dublin. This debut featured Vincent Kilfuff accompanying the band on Uilleann pipes. The song was only attempted twice more on the October Tour: at a Saint Patrick’s Day concert in New York City and a show at the same venue the next day. For the War Tour, the band rehearsed a new live version: “October” segued into it and the Uilleann pipes were replaced by The Edge playing a tin whistle. The song was played at all shows on the tour’s first leg for which complete setlists are known. It then appeared at the first two weeks of concerts on the War Tour’s second leg before its final live performance in early May 1983.

    I couldn't agree more Ximena!! How did it get overlooked in the compilations?? It is a tribute to the quality of all their music, to be able to leave this track out.

    One of the most powerful rock songs ever composed, and no one knows it, despite having been written by one of the biggest bands of all time. [2]

    'Tomorrow", "Drowning Man", and "Acrobat" are U2's most underrated songs.
