U2: NYC Traffic "Jammed"

Written by Music

To promote the release of their latest album, How To Dismantle An Atom Bomb (and to film the video for the single “All Because Of You”), U2 performed on a large flat-bed trailer driven through the streets of New York City. The day then culminated with a live performance at the Brooklyn Bridge.

While heavy on material from “Atom Bomb”, this gig is most notable for an impromptu performance of the song “She’s A Mystery To Me”. While it is widely known that U2 use certain “enhancements” when performing live, this particular tune beautifully showcases U2’s ability to strips things down a bit.
