2001-08-21 - London, England - Earl's Court Arena


Comments: Early in the morning on the day of this show, Bono's father Bob Hewson passed away. Bono was at his dad's bedside in Dublin at the time, but still flew to London to perform. He was visibly emotional during the concert. He sang "another soul leaves the world, my old man" at the end of Beautiful Day, and dedicated Kite to his father, stating that "he's no longer ill ... he's free". On a statistical note, this show featured the last performance of 11 O'clock Tick Tock until 28 May 2015.
