"I have fallen off stage on a couple of occasions. The first thing is to protect the guitar, because you can fix an ankle, you can fix a bruise, but when you break a guitar that's the end of it."

Comments: U2 start a string of seven consecutive shows at the National Tennis Centre in Melbourne. Bono brings a fan named Warren on stage to play guitar during "People Get Ready." During "Running To Stand Still," Bono refrences the 1989 Australian pilots strike by singing, "can't get me no jet plane."

The music played on the speakers after the show ends is the Neville Brothers version of the Sam Cooke song, "A Change Is Gonna Come." This will be used as the outro music for the entire tour.
