Mothers Of The Disappeared
All I Want Is You
Our show of the month brings us back to South America, a continent that hasn't seen a U2 show for quite some time now. The show in Chile in 2006 demonstrates why it would be great for U2 to go there again, with a great performance and an amazing crowd. U2 adapted a small part of their setlist to Chile which made for a great highlight as Mothers of the Disappeared was played on a charango (traditional South American instrument). It was the first performance of the song in almost 10 years. A song we are about to hear again in 2017.
i waited almost 12 hrs in the line then another 6 hrs in the stadium, but i manage to get 10 mts from the stage, it was an amazing show it blew my mind, u2 came to chile right after they won 5 grammis for "how to dismantle an atomic bomb", the band was at it best at that time and you could see that on stage, call me "old school" but i did bring any camera or cell phone to the concert, i dint wanted to be distracted for a selfie or anything else, so i enjoyed every bit of the show, i lose my voice for a couple of days after it was finished..... ahhhhh what a memory!!!!

"I would say we had the best three weeks in the studio that we've had since, like, 1979. Three weeks is all it should take."
- Bono on recording a new album, June 2012
wist je dat
In 1999, a bag holding personal papers and a laptop computer containing lyrics for the ATYCLB album was taken from Bono's car. Bono offered a reward of £2,000 for the return of the computer. An Irish man returned the laptop after having bought it for £300 thinking it was from a reputable source. He realised it was Bono's when he saw a picture of the singer's child Elijah Bob on the screen, prompting him to contact U2's management.
