"I felt like a Kafka bureaucrat, overwhelmed by the machinery. The trick is to dominate the mechanism, be the ghost in the machine, when we do overcome the lights and the screen, the result is magnificent. I promise you tomorrow the result will be different."
- Bono on the Popmart show on Dec 2. in Mexico, the day before the videoshoot

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).
