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!).
In the live performance of 'The Electric Co.' from 1983's Under A Blood Red Sky, Bono sang a snippet of Stephen Sondheim's 'Send In The Clowns'. U2 had failed to get permission for this 27-second snippet and later agreed to pay a $50,000 penalty as well as removing the snippet from later pressings.
