Comments: After a fan organises a petition with more than 10,000 signatures requesting U2 to play Wales, this concert is booked. It is only the second rock concert at Cardiff Arms Park (David Bowie was first in June 1987). Bono explains that the show is particularly special for The Edge, who is of Welsh heritage. He says that Edge's father would say "one day my boy will play Cardiff Arms Park", but meant rugby, not music. So Edge is given a rugby ball and he kicks it well into the crowd.
