"We're bringing a cathedral right off the strip in Las Vegas, it's called the Sphere and we are are going to make much mischief there. All we have been trying from the beginning was to break the fourth wall. This will hopefully take ourselves and our audience to the next level. We're choosing Achtung Baby because it's the place for such mischief. Because The Fly was always headed to Las Vegas."
- Bono, March 2023

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.
