Performance notes: Since dislocating his shoulder on 20 September 1987 in Washington DC, Bono has had his arm in a sling. This is the first concert where he does not need the sling and he is relieved. Trip Through Your Wires is dedicated to his "once broken and now mended arm".

This was my first U2 show. Met Bono before the show. Hours before they were warming up and we found our way into a lobby type entrance where there were ticket windows. Nobody was there so we stood and listened, but could not see the stage. After about 5 minutes Bono appears from behind the ticket window. We were in shock. We went and talked to him. He asked if we had tickets to the show, which we did, but they were not good. He said to stop back to the ticket window later and he'd leave better tickets..turns out for a section that didn't even exist. My friend got his autograph and later we laughed about the joke Bono played on us by offering bogus tickets. A moment I'll never forget.

Notes (from Justin's website)
This is a very nice audience recording of an exceptionally rare Joshua Tree concert. There is virtually no background noise and the audience is barely audible. Sound clarity is quite good as well. There are a few fade outs between songs, but otherwise this is a fantastic find for those of you pursuing rare material. "40" is omitted on this recording.

what they said
"For a long time we were the biggest cult group in the world. We feel a little uneasy being considered mainstream. We have no problem with the idea of commercial success, but more with what this implies: doing things that are safe and accessible to the bulk of music buyers. We always wanted to write good songs and make quality records. We're not in any way conservative in terms of our interests in music. The interest in dance music is quite consistent with other things that we've been inspired by in the past."
- The Edge, 1999
