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!
"It's my favorite U2 song, I have to say. Normally, when I hear a U2 song on the radio I cringe. Either I sound like a girl, or the lyric isn't finished. But there are some songs that I really, really do enjoy. Miss Sarajevo is one of them."
- Bono on the release of U23D, 2008
