"This was my first ever U2 show. It was my 15th birthday and the tickets were a present from my Mother.
I remember everything about that day. Getting up, going to picked my friend up, the train journey to Wembley, the support acts, and of course the main event. As son as I heard "Stand by Me" I had chills running down my back. It was amazing night and gem that night it has led to many another live show.
Thank you U2"
"It's an album about essence, the essential things. The things that are cast in the way of the non-essential things and realising what those essential things are: family, friendship, it all adds up." - Bono on All That You Can't Leave Behind

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).
