Comments: U2 again perform on the observation deck at the top of the building home to NBC's headquarters. They are filmed for the premiere of the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and play for a small audience including fanclub members. Like the previous day's set, U2 perform Invisible twice. The band played on two separate days to minimise the risk of poor weather interfering with their performance. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

"It was quite hard for the band to shift from having played to loops of other people to playing to loops of themselves. We felt it was essential to do that, though, because you can get very lazy with samples. They're an easy way to get the ball rolling, but you're always in danger of sounding like some basic samples with the band on top. You're in danger of being dictated to by what's there, rather than saying: 'this is just our springboard'."

The song 'A Day Without Me' was written in response to the suicide of Ian Curtis of Joy Division and reflects Bono's take on the selfishness of suicide, which is the dominant theme of the song.
