"Bono volunteered me to be photographed naked, as I recall. I was still a young man and the idea of doing a nude photo shoot appealed to me because I'd been looking at Robert Mapplethorpe's work and following that whole New York photographic art scene. I knew there might be repercussions but this was a one-shot opportunity for me. This was the right record for such an expression."

Larry Mullen Jr. is well-known for his dislike of the Passengers album. In 2002, when reflecting on the album, he mentioned while it hadn't grown on him, Miss Sarajevo (with Luciano Pavarotti) 'is a classic'. The song was played subsequently on the 2005 - 2006 Vertigo Tour, on the 360 Tour (2009 - 2011) and also on the Joshua Tree 2017 tour (even though it was tiitled "Miss Syria" then).
