comment: The giant lemon was broken, so it was not used. Before Desire, Bono asked humorously if the evening's persistent rain was the work of controversial state politician Fred Nile and told the crowd not to let Nile rain on their parade. He then jokingly dedicated Desire to the socially conservative Nile and another controversial Australian politican, Pauline Hanson. This show featured the last performance of MLK until 3 February 2002.
