"At this point of the tour we've figured out how to play the songs and I think it's the greatest show on earth. It's a rockin' band and it wasn't always that way. There were a few scary bits early on."
- Bono, 1997

'40' from the War album almost was never recorded. The band (minus Adam Clayton who had left the studio) had gone over their booked studio time, but convinced the studio manager to let them record '40'. The Edge plays both electric and bass guitar on the song. It was a last addition to the album, but has closed many shows over the decades.
