Remarks:

At this concert, Bono brings a guest guitarist on stage for People Get Ready. At the end of the song, Bono asks the fan if he's in a band and if the band is here. He is, and they are, so the whole band comes on stage. They're given extra instruments, and together with U2, knock out a less-than-perfect version of Knockin' On Heaven's Door. This is also the last time U2 cover Bob Dylan's song Maggie's Farm. However, two years later, Bono comes on stage at a Dylan concert in Dublin and they perform the song together.
