Performance notes: Bono and Edge play a surprise unannounced acoustic set as part of Mencap's Little Noise Sessions; Adam watches from the audience and Larry is not in attendance. The appearance includes the live debut of Wave Of Sorrow, a song originally created during 1986 recording sessions for The Joshua Tree and finally completed and released on 2007's 20th anniversary re-release of The Joshua Tree. Stay (Faraway, So Close!) is performed for the first time in six years. Two INXS snippets are included in Desire in memory of Michael Hutchence as the previous day was the tenth anniversary of his death.
