To imagine that the boys would be able to perform this song at the very spot that Dr. King gave his famous speech makes this the most significant historical performance EVER of this song, even exceeding Sarajevo.


Excellent Braodcast.
Recording: FM Aerial Broadcast - 5 stars


The audience was completely into the performance, and obviously the highlight of the event.


Highlights - U2 again raises their game for an event that would dwarf most performers. A performance of historical significance with perfect sound.
