Reissued 2018, originally released 1985
Limited 180 gram vinyl LP pressing. Wide Awake in America is a four-track EP by the Irish rock band U2, released in 1985. It combines two live performances of songs from the group's 1984 album The Unforgettable Fire with two B-sides from the era, which had previously been available only in the United Kingdom. It was originally released only in North America and Japan but sold so well that it charted in the UK as an import. The EP's centerpiece, "Bad" - a song about heroin addiction whose lyric inspired the collection's title - would become a staple of their live set, particularly after a remarkable extended performance at Live Aid in which Bono danced with a girl in the audience.
