I've been a fan since the Joshua Tree album. I finally managed to see them live for the first time during the 360 tour in the Dallas Cowboys stadium. It was especially cool to be able to take my sons to their very first live concert event--not bad starting out with U2, huh? I'm hoping they come back to Memphis on their next tour--it was 1997 when they last played here (and I missed it!).
"Actually '78 was a really exciting time for U2. We had just discovered F sharp minor. So we had the fourth chord and we'd only had three up to then."

The Rattle and Hum album opens with a live cover of The Beatles' "Helter Skelter". Its inclusion on the album was intended by the band to reflect the confusion of The Joshua Tree Tour and their new-found superstar status.
