"Hawkmoon 269 was recorded in Sunset Sound, with all that shit that happens around there going on. Search-and-destroy choppers looking for drug busts, Sunset Strip, hookers. Every neon sign advertising sex in some shape or form. You could feel all that coming through in 'Hawkmoon'."
- Bono on recording Hawkmoon 269 in Los Angeles

During the ZooTV Tour, U2 wanted to play a show in Sarajevo. Due to logistical problems they couldn't play there during that tour so instead they created a video uplink to Sarajevo during most ZooTV shows. On the Popmart Tour, they played their first (and so far only) show in Sarajevo, finally fulfilling that vision.
