"We had to build that stage in six minutes. I was on radio-controlled earphones and microphone. One error and you're off air.

That whole tour, we kind of fell in love with America again and they fell in love with us."
- Bono on playing the Superbowl half-time show in 2011

The title for the song 'Shadows and Tall Trees' is taken from William Goldings "Lord Of The Flies", whose 5th chapter bears the same name. The song, and the album, is about boyhood, innocence and struggle, as is Golding's book.
