Comments: As John Lennon's version of "Stand By Me" plays overhead, the band come on stage and take over playing the rest of the song including Larry singing a verse. "All Along The Watchtower" features Bono heavily impovising the lyrics. "Bullet The Blue Sky" features a reference to "11 O'Clock Tick Tock", as Bono says "tick... tock... tick... tock. 11 O'Clock Tick Tock!"

The Edge plays "Van Dieman's Land" for the first time.
