I'll put it behind a cut in case those of you who are seeing them later on this tour don't want the moment spoiled...
Try to imagine the opening notes from Miracle Drug playing while you read this...
Bono: "Whenever I hear those 8 notes, I get very excited about the future. A lot of people don't know this but Edge is actually from the future. Well, he's from the future, but the future on a different planet. When Adam, Larry, and me were kids on the north side of Dublin, we saw Edge's spaceship coming down. And as it approached the ground, the sound it was making was those 8 notes.
Anyway, it landed in front of us, and The Edge got out and said, 'Hi, I'm The Edge.'
Adam said, 'Where did you come from?'
And Edge replied, 'I'm from the future.'
Then Larry said, 'You're from the future!? What's it like?'
And The Edge said, 'it's better.'"
Sometimes I'm not sure what I'd do without this band.
