1997-09-23 - Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina - Kosevo Stadium


Comments: Sunday Bloody Sunday was performed solo by The Edge for the first time and was played in this manner for the rest of the Popmart Tour. Miss Sarajevo was played with Brian Eno. U2 visited Sarajevo to fulfill a promise made during the Zoo TV Tour to play in war-ravaged Bosnia-Herzegovina. It was the first concert the band played in any country that was formerly part of Yugoslavia; the second did not take place until 9 August 2009 in Zagreb, Croatia.

they play like there was no tomorrow.... amazing gig... on of my favorites BL's... Bono's voice gives a certain mood to the concert that is beyond words... amazing!!


really awesome and very clear sound!!
Recording: "Sarajevo [remaster]" - 5 stars


they sing along with Bono most of the songs... are very very cheerfull at all times!!!


a must have...
highlights: crowd singing ISHFWILF
Stand by me's snippet is almost worth the bootleg... really...
and Please... oh dear!! with Bono's voice drowning in his throat... it really brings tears and so much emotions....
very emotionally charged show....
