U2 performs in London, August 1, 1997.
'Staring at the Sun,' Popmart Tour, 1997/98
U2's ill-fated 1997 disc Pop didn't translate well to the stage, and after a handful of disastrous gigs they rejiggered the show, dropping some of the new songs and reworking others. The most successful alteration was "Staring at the Sun," in which Bono and the Edge both played acoustic guitars. It was easily one of the best parts of the show.
