For the very first time since December 10, 1993, “Tryin’ To Throw Your Arms Around The World” is performed live at a U2 concert. The song is only a snippet, however, after U2 performs “Mysterious Ways”. Then at the end of the show in Chicago, U2 performs “One Tree Hill” in its entirety, the first time the song has been played live in the USA since December 20, 1987 on the Joshua Tree tour. “One Tree Hill” is dedicated to Greg Carroll, whose death occurred 25 years ago almost to the date.
