Comments: Bono tells the crowd that U2 hung out with Green Day and Metallica a night earlier and talked about creating a new music festival. Lou Reed is at the show, prompting Larry to sing a bit of Perfect Day before Bono leads the crowd in singing Happy Birthday for a friend named John. He dedicates Pride to the Shriver family. After ‘Streets’, Bono brings a fan from Poland on stage – a guy who flew 20 hours to be at this show.
