2017-10-03 - Mexico City
Tour: Joshua Tree Tour 2017
Songs played: 23
Audio recordings: 2
  1. Opening this a bit early given what's happening in Mexico, which will one way or another probably have a big impact on the shows.
  2. Thoughts and prayers to our brothers and sisters south of the border...
  3. Interestingly, September 19 is the anniversary of the big 1985 Mexico City earthquake that killed thousands of people.

    Every September 19 there's earthquake drills all over the country and TV networks recall that day (like 9-11 in the USA).

    About the U2 shows...

    Yesterday's Mexican Cup matchday was cancelled in all the country.
    I guess the league matchday over the weekend will be cancelled too.
    That could be a sign of what would happen in two weeks...

    Hey man, your presence here tells me you are alright. I'm very glad to hear it. I was thinking about you...
  5. Thanks!

    I'm concerned/troubled about what happened, but luckily I'm far enough from Mexico City (Guadalajara).

    I'm still waiting for the other Mexican to show up, though...

    Thoughts are with y'all...
  7. Hope there's swift recovery and healing for all across the border. I hope U2's shows can go on, because I'm sure that after more than six years since their last visit and the events of yesterday many fans will find it a healing experience. Best wishes to all
  8. ¡Aguante México! Un abrazo y mucho ánimo a todos los mexicanos. Love you!
  9. God bless all mexican people
