Comments: Live debut of Pride. This is U2's first performance in New Zealand, and is in fact their first performance in the entire Southern Hemisphere. U2 had intentions to visit the Southern Hemisphere - as well as India - on the War Tour but were exhausted and instead only did a brief tour of Japan. This factor, as well as the band's lack of familiarity with material from the then soon-to-be released Unforgettable Fire album meant that setlists at the New Zealand and Australian shows were very similar to those from the War Tour. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

In between tours, the band lands in NZ for the first time. The boot is incomplete, but we still have great performances of An Cat Dubh (Bono sings something different in the transition into Into The Heart), Surrender (great snippets), Two Hearts Beat As One (there's a snippet that I can't identify). Too bad we can't listen to the first Pride ever.

"Right at the very end, somewhat as an afterthought, he yelled out, 'It's a beautiful day, it's a beautiful day.' And after that, we just kept chipping away till we had the song."
- Daniel Lanois, on how Bono came up with the hook for 'Beautiful Day'
