comment: BBC taping for Top of The Pops in front of ~200 people in the BBC car park. Live debuts of Vertigo, All Because Of You, and City Of Blinding Lights, though backing tracks were involved. Desire and She's A Mystery To Me were impromptu performances; the former was rough and electric, the latter was very stripped down and spare. The final two songs were performed indoors.

Vertigo, City of Blinding Lights, Miracle Drug, Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
comment: CD:UK taping in front of 150 people. The band arrived 3 hours behind schedule. Planned was an approximately 30 minute set. After the first minute of SYCMIOYO, Bono was not satisfied and the band restarted the song.

10/26/2004 California Theatre - San Jose, California, USA
Original Of The Species, All Because Of You

comment: U2 film a music video for All Because of You on the back of a flatbed truck prior to a concert at the Empire Fulton Ferry State Park. The performance disrupts traffic (and workdays) as the truck drives around Manhattan for several hours. All Because of You is performed at least four times and likely many more than that.
