The Road to Sarajevo: Part One – Bosnia and Bill Carter

On 23 September 1997, U2 performed for the first – and as of this date, only – time in the city of Sarajevo. It was a concert that was typical of the PopMart Tour; and yet it was also a concert the likes of which has not been played since. U2’s history with the city is a long one, with the seeds being planted as far back as the Zoo TV Tour during the breakout of the Bosnian War. 2012 marked the fifteenth anniversary of U2’s concert in Sarajevo, and although this article is a couple of weeks late for the exact anniversary we’d still like to celebrate this landmark event in U2’s history with this multi-part look back at what you may, and may not, have known about the road to Sarajevo.

Bono, Edge, and A Decade of Difference

Tonight, Bono and The Edge performed at A Decade Of Difference, a concert held to celebrate ten years of the William J. Clinton Foundation. Bono and The Edge have had a lengthy relationship with former US President Bill Clinton. They first met him during the Zoo TV tour, and in the time since then Bono and Clinton have met multiple times for philanthropic purposes. On 18 November 2004, they performed at the dedication ceremony for the William J. Clinton Presidential Center and Library, playing Rain, Sunday Bloody Sunday, and The Hands That Built America to a crowd of thousands in the rain.

Before his set with The Edge began, Bono joined K'Naan on stage for one song, dueting with him on his brand new song, Bulletproof Pride. Our database entry for this appearance is separate to that for Bono and Edge's set and can be found here.

Bono and The Edge were the final act on stage, introduced by Bill and Chelsea Clinton. The set contained two massive surprises: The first was the debut live performance of A Man And A Woman, dedicated to Chelsea and her husband Marc Mezvinsky. It is almost exactly seven years since that song was released on How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. The second was a surprise performance of Staring At The Sun, not played since 24 October 2001. It is the first time any song from Pop has been performed in full live since Discotheque was played on 20 September 2005. Staring At The Sun was backed by a string section, as were One and Miss Sarajevo.

The full set was as follows:

  1. Desire
  2. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
  3. A Man And A Woman
  4. Sunday Bloody Sunday
  5. Staring At The Sun
  6. One / Happy Birthday (snippet)

  7. Encore(s):
  8. Miss Sarajevo

U2Gigs podcast now available!

After many editing delays, the first U2Gigs.com podcast is finally available! After the conclusion of the 360 Tour in Moncton, Axver and Matkin sat down to talk about their perspectives on the evolution of the tour. They spoke for so long, in fact, that it had to split it into two parts! (Part Two is coming soon).

In part one of our 360 Tour introspective, we take a look at what was, and what might have been. How did the setlist evolve along the tour? How diverse was it? What was missing, and what almost blew the colective fan community's mind? Of course, a conversation between Ax and Matkin (infamous for talking to each other on the U2Gigs Twitter account) wouldn't be a proper conversation without going off-topic once or twice (or thrice. Or whatever the next in line is; fourice?) - we'll compare this tour to the highlights of U2's past, talk about potential remasters (Achtung not included), and even take a look back to Boy and U2 3 Tours!

We hope that you enjoy our first podcast; stay tuned for part two! We'd love to hear your feedback, so please feel free to tell us what you think in the comments section below!

Download the podcast here on iTunes! A direct link to the podcast file is also available here.

Bono sings in Cape Town

Today Bono was in Cape Town with Archbishop Desmond Tutu for the release of Tutu's new book. At the event Bono gave a speech and sang I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, with local musicians and singers acting as his backing band. Tutu, who turns 80 tomorrow, has had a lengthy relationship with U2. A rant about apartheid in Africa was immortalized in the live version of Silver and Gold on Rattle and Hum, and a video speech by Tutu on the One Campaign was aired during the first encore on most nights of the 360 tour, preceeding both Where the Streets Have No Name and One.
