"One of the reasons we wrote our own songs was because we couldn't play other peoples'. We were worse than your average wedding band. But we could do our thing better than anyone else in the world." — Bono

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!
