"I think this record is just as innovative as Pop, it's just that the thing we're pushing to the forefront is the chemistry of the band playing together, and I think that is why people are referring back to earlier projects." — Edge, on All That You Can't Leave Behind

Comments: There are plenty of hijinx on the last night of the tour. During the early part of the show, someone near the stage is squirting Bono with water. After "Another Time, Another Place," Bono asks the audience, "Who's got the water pistol?" Then, during the guitar solo in the next song, "The Electric Co.," Bono gets his hands on a water pistol and leaves the stage. He comes back soon after and tells the crowd that he just squirted Steve Lillywhite in the face!
