This was U2’s final concert in New Zealand for 13 years. Bono personally selected 3Ds, a band from the southern New Zealand city of Dunedin, to be the support act. It was the 3Ds’ biggest concert ever, but when an associate of the band pilfered a bottle of wine from U2’s dressing room, the concert promoter angrily told 3Ds that they would not get paid for the gig. Bono, however, was in the room at the time and insisted that the 3Ds get paid double – and receive an extra bottle of wine.
