** For this troper, the best use of "Where the Streets of Have No Name" would probably be at their performance at Slane Castle. The performance occurred just weeks after the death of Bono's father; needless to say, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDkBzkA9L4s preformance is nothing if not moving.]] *** This troper thinks the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gq08ouOwiqQ&feature=related performance at the Super Bowl]] fits the trope better.

* During the 2015 concert tour, Ireland legalized same sex marriage, and on the Inglewood, CA stage at The Forum, Bono cried out at last that "Love is the Highest Law". This troper's voice was raw as he and 8000(?) people shouted with joy and, I'd like to think, triumph.

* Gabrielle Giffords is a congresswoman that survived an assassination attempt in Jan 2011. During her recovery she listened to U2 a lot and even picked a U2 song (Beautiful Day) as the wake up song when her husband, Commander Mark Kelly, was on the International Space Station. During a concert in Seattle, Bono dedicated Beautiful Day to Gabrielle and asks the audience “Imagine a man looking down on us from 200 miles up. Looking down at our beautiful crowded planet… What would he say to us…? What is on your mind, Commander Kelly?” Commander Kelly, appearing on the 360 screen from the International Space Station, quoted Bowie, [[http://youtu.be/9ydz5-ecdpg “I’m looking forward to coming home. Tell my wife I love her very much… she knows.”]]

* The song "One". At a moment the band was facing a serious split after ''Rattle And Hum'' and arguing over the direction of the next album, U2 sits down and records a delicate ode to the pain of a relationship falling apart, yet a song that still comes across as hopeful and uplifting.

** It gets even better (yes, that's possible) when you know that on his second space shuttle mission, in 2006, Mark Kelly was also awoken by Beautiful Day- dedicated to him by his then-girlfriend, Gabrielle Giffords.
