Comments: Bono sings "Happy Birthday" to a crew member at the end of the main set. He substitutes the usual lyrics with a version more commonly heard in schoolyards. The "Cry" snippet also features different lyrics, as Bono improvises slightly. The encore brings a surprise performance of "Southern Man," but Bono forgets the lyrics and invites a fan onstage to help out.

"Westminster Quarters" refers to the traditional melody used by clock bells to denote quarter-hour increments. The Edge plays the melody for the half-hour chime on the album version of "11 O'Clock Tick Tock," but he also played it during "The Ocean" on many October tour dates.

According to a 2016 Pitchfork article, U2 was paid $2,500 for this show with a bonus of $1,200. "The band's rider, " Pitchfork says, "is the picture of reason: beer and wine, coffee and tea, OJ and Coke, 'light refreshment i.e. deli tray; [and] four clean towels.' The kicker is a proviso, undoubtedly written with fresh memories of three-hour sound checks such as the one the band had done the previous April: 'There are four persons in our road crew and we would be grateful if provisions for a hot meal for them could be made, as it is unlikely that any of them will escape from the venue after get-in time.'"
