"In Madison Square Garden, the lights came on during Where The Streets Have No Name and there must have been ten thousand people with tears running down their faces. And I told them they looked beautiful, which became the line in City Of Blinding Lights."
- Bono on playing New York after 9/11

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).
