Remarks:
During I Will Follow, a crowd member throws a box of mice on stage, to Bono’s displeasure. Some of the mice die of heart attacks from shock. Later on, before 11 O’Clock Tick Tock, Busta Jones (a bassist who has worked with Talking Heads) is brought on stage for a guest appearance and he plays a long solo. On a statistical note, this is the last time Touch, 11 O’clock Tick Tock’s b-side, is performed live.
