'Under An Atomic Sky'

22
'I went out walkin' under an atomic sky
Where the ground won't turn and the rain it burns
Like the tears when I said goodbye...'


When U2360° stopped in Nashville, Tennessee last month, the band paid homage to the late, great Johnny Cash, performing a song they wrote and recorded with him on 'Zooropa.'

This is 'The Wanderer'.

Could have been better
They should have made the proper version they played at the Cash Tribute.

The gems are...well, the jewels!
It was pretty amazing standing there and hearing Bono move into this song...even if only for a snippet. But if Miss Sarajevo, Zooropa and even Scarlet can go from their relative obscurities into staples, maybe there\'s hope for some more rarely-polished jewels on the *next tour*!!! Some suggestions: Drowning Man, North and South of the River, A Day Without Me, Night and Day...by now, there are so many to choose from. I hope that if the scale needs to be drawn back a little bit, that will make the backdrop more flexible, allowing for different songs to pepper the setlist each night. Maybe it\'s just me, but the band seemed happiest the last month of the tour when they decided to \"shake it up a bit, and do something that isn\'t on the schedule.\" (apologies to R&H-era Edge) That excitement, and the resulting excitement of the longtimers would probably be enough to propel the next tour. Regardless, keep it up boys!

The Wanderer
Nice version but the band performed the ultimate version a few years ago for the Johnny Cash tribute concert. One of the best U2 live moments. This song should be in their sets more often. Beautiful song. x

Nashville
I was fortunate enough to have attended 7 shows in 6 American cities this summer. But damn, what a show to have missed. Beautiful song.
karenlawler - 22 August, 2011
Yay! I was here too!
And this wasn\'t even the highlight of this amazing show. Please come back to Nashville, U2. My whole Facebook lit up with awestruck comments of friends who attended. Definitely the highlight of my summer!

2012 membership gift: 360 performance hi
this is exactly what longtime u2.com/propaganda fans want...access to the gems from the tour on cd/dvd/download. one tree hill from chicago, bad from pittsburgh, all i want is you and the wanderer from nashville, etc. as well as the unreleased tracks live like mercy, every breaking wave and northstar. live versions of the no line on the horizon tunes would also be welcome. thanks!

In search of experience
U2;s amazing performance of \"The Wanderer\" was truly such a wonderful homage to Nashville, the city of music. With the warm depth of his mature voice that was truly reminiscent of the great Johnny Cash, Bono told a moving story about the protagonist;s restless spirit searching for salvation in a comfortless modern world. Interpreting this stand-out track from the \"Zooropa\" album, U2 added another rarely played and memorable tune to the stunning 360 Tour.
