"I marched along with thousands of other Irish people at an anti-war rally in Dublin. It's the first time I've ever marched against anything. I felt I had to do something. It was weird then seeing Bono on pictures with Tony Blair and George W. Bush. The moral of the story is we can't afford to get the war and Africa confused."

Larry Mullen Jr. is well-known for his dislike of the Passengers album. In 2002, when reflecting on the album, he mentioned while it hadn't grown on him, Miss Sarajevo (with Luciano Pavarotti) 'is a classic'. The song was played subsequently on the 2005 - 2006 Vertigo Tour, on the 360 Tour (2009 - 2011) and also on the Joshua Tree 2017 tour (even though it was tiitled "Miss Syria" then).
