"What happened to all those rock dinosaurs of the 1970s was that they got loaded, they got their fancy cars and they started owning fish farms in Wales." — Bono

Comments: Because of a torrential rainstorm outside the venue, after Lone Justice's opening set, an announcement is made from the stage that U2 will delay taking the stage for thirty to forty five minutes in order to allow time for all the fans to arrive safely at the show.

Over the course of the Unforgettable Fire tour, "Bad" quickly becomes the set piece of the show with the band extending it's performance on a nightly basis. This show's performance is no exception, with it being extended past the 16 minute mark, making it the longest known performance of the song. Bono even grabs a guitar and strums along -- ultra rare during "Bad" -- towards the end of the song.
