Comments: 40 features an extremely rare and brief snippet of Walk To The Water, a b-side of With Or Without You. Soundcheck was possibly the band but it could have been their techs - it is not known for sure which. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

"Steve had a great way of pulling the best out of everybody. Nothing was a hassle, the sessions were very positive. I think it was particularly great for Adam and Larry to work with somebody who was able to understand that we were not incredible musicians. We did what we did."

The show where the Red Rocks show was recorded would originally have been postponed due to bad weather, but the band couldn't afford this because they had a film crew over. That is the reason the show happened regardless.
