In 2015, U2 will play 8 consecutive shows in New York City within 14 days, the longest run of consecutive shows in a city U2 ever played. Only 8 times before, a city was privileged enough to see U2 perform for 5 or more consecutive nights. In this slideshow we go back in time and highlight these 8 runs of shows. How did this influence the setlist? Were later shows considered better? We found out!

During the ZooTV Tour, U2 wanted to play a show in Sarajevo. Due to logistical problems they couldn't play there during that tour so instead they created a video uplink to Sarajevo during most ZooTV shows. On the Popmart Tour, they played their first (and so far only) show in Sarajevo, finally fulfilling that vision.
