Comments: The First Time is played for the first time outside the USA, and the first time in an outdoor venue. Desire is played by just Bono and Edge in response to a request from an audience member whose first name is very similar to the song's title. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

"I was very nervous about doing Live Aid, it was such a huge gig. People were queuing up to do it because of the exposure, they were talking about the amount of TV coverage and whatever. It was hard to convince some people that we were there for the right reasons."
- Larry Mullen jr.

U2 changed many of the tracks' names of No Line On The Horizon during recording, retitling "French Disco" to "Magnificent" and "Crazy Tonight" to "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight". "Chromium Chords" became "Tripoli", and finally "Fez – Being Born".
