"We had to build that stage in six minutes. I was on radio-controlled earphones and microphone. One error and you're off air. It was terrifying but all you can see is my usual expression when I'm terrified - a big smirk. But it was a great moment. That whole tour, we kind of fell in love with America again and they fell in love with us."
- Bono on playing the Superbowl half-time show in 2011

In 1999, a bag holding personal papers and a laptop computer containing lyrics for the ATYCLB album was taken from Bono's car. Bono offered a reward of £2,000 for the return of the computer. An Irish man returned the laptop after having bought it for £300 thinking it was from a reputable source. He realised it was Bono's when he saw a picture of the singer's child Elijah Bob on the screen, prompting him to contact U2's management.
