Tonight’s concert was way better. The crowd was less up tight and up for a party. Bono got the sense of that from early on (Edge almost falling over during NYD caused a bit of a giggle within the band).
It was a terrific time. I sat next to some great fans from NZ and Aussie.
"The desert was immensely inspirational to us as a mental image for this record. Most people would take the desert on face value and think it's some kind of barren place, which of course is true. But in the right frame of mind, it's also a very positive image, because you can actually do something with blank canvas, which is effectively what the desert is."
