My Third Show
I had already seen the band at Radio City and Madison Square Garden on the two legs of the Unforgettable Fire tour. There was a ton of hype leading up to these shows, including a piece on the news about how the band was working with the Harlem Youth Choir on a version of I still Haven;t Found What I'm Looking For. The choir came out on stage during this show, which is what ended up on the Rattle & Hum soundtrack. But for me, one of the most memorable moments was when during the pre-show music, with the house lights still one, the band came out in the middle of Stand By Me and finished the song before taking down the house lights and continuing with the show. Even though it was a sizable venue, you felt a connection with the band thanks to that moment.
