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


Performance notes: 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.

review by thebonodrums

The band was in top form this night. Bono's voice was awful but it goes basically unnoticed because of the obvious circumstances. This goes to show that just because a singer is unable to sing, a band can still put on a haeck of a show!


Unbelievably Exceptional.
Recording: "Sarajevo [remaster]" - 5 stars




Highlights: Bono speaking during ISHFWILF, and noteably Edge sings the chorus of Pride for Bono who could barely talk at that point in the show.
