"I don't want people coming to me, or the group, as some sort of God substitute or guru-like goons because I can look at myself in the mirror and just laugh, 'cause I know who I am. We've grown up in public in Dublin, and people there know us to be the jerks that we are. I think it's good when I walk down the street in Dublin and one person will say, 'That's Bono,' and the other person will say, 'So what?'"
- Bono, 1985

During the ZooTV Tour, U2 wanted to play a show in Sarajevo. Due to logistical problems they couldn't play there during that tour so instead they created a video uplink to Sarajevo during most ZooTV shows. On the Popmart Tour, they played their first (and so far only) show in Sarajevo, finally fulfilling that vision.
