Remarks:

While playing the third of four year-end shows at Dublin's Point Depot, Bono delivers the now-famous 'Dream it all up again' speech during the beginning of 'Love Rescue Me', hinting at the band's intent on changing its musical direction that later found its way onto Achtung Baby: 'I was explaining to people the other night, but I might've got it a bit wrong - this is just the end of something for U2. And that's why we're playing these concerts -- and we're throwing a party for ourselves and you. It's no big deal, it's just -- we have to go away and ... and dream it all up again.' Also, She's A Mystery To Me is performed for the first time.
