"The song Iris deals with some kind of transference of the female energy because the way I would look at women, from the point I met Ali, was forever changed. It's a big moment, at puberty, you're just discovering girls and this women who brought you into the world leaves you, abandons you. And you think it's your fault, because that's something that kids do. But, of course it's not"
- Bono on Iris

During the ZooTV Tour, U2 wanted to play a show in Sarajevo. Due to logistical problems they couldn't play there during that tour so instead they created a video uplink to Sarajevo during most ZooTV shows. On the Popmart Tour, they played their first (and so far only) show in Sarajevo, finally fulfilling that vision.
