For the last 10 years of my father's life, every time we'd have a conversation he'd start it with, 'Would you just take off those stupid fly shades, please?' -- Bono

Comments: An extended version of "Desire" features Bono singing how he loves the city of Boston and almost snippets "Not Fade Away," but never quite does. All four Boston shows are filmed for the DVD, Elevation 2001: Live from Boston, but tonight and tomorrow's shows make up most of the official release.
