I find that I'm talking to less people but writing more songs. -- Bono, 1989

In honor of Hot Press's 1,000th issue, Bono has written an article reflecting on U2's first visit to India, and the road the band took to get there. In it, he discusses his trip to Ethiopia in the 1980s and the affect Salman Rushdie's writing had on the decision to bring The Joshua Tree 2019 Tour to Mumbai. He goes on to discuss the similarities between Gandhi's India and the Dublin in which the band grew up, nothing that "for all our differences in size, culture and religion, turns out, we have a lot in common."

U2 will wrap up The Joshua Tree 2019 Tour in Mumbai, India, on December 15, 2019.
