Dream It All Up Again

| No Comments

Although often attributed to U2's New Year's Eve 1989/New Year's Day 1990 concert, this quote from Bono was actually made the night before, on December 30, 1989, during the opening strains of "Love Rescue Me."

"We've had a lot of fun over the last few months, just getting to know some of the music which we didn't know so much about -- and still don't know very much about, but it was fun! (pause) Anyway, thanks for coming along. It wouldn't have been the same without you. (applause) Some people have traveled a long way to come here tonight. (applause) This -- 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 what 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."
