Evil Me

Song Of The Day

This week I've chosen a classic performance of a U2 concert staple:

Bullet The Blue Sky
from Rattle And Hum

This version of the song appears both on the album and in the movie, and was recorded at the final show of the Joshua Tree Tour, at the Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona. It may not be quite as striking and explosive as the later ZooTV version, but it's still very powerful - and it's absolutely central to Rattle & Hum itself, providing both the title and that iconic cover image. So I do think it's deserving of its own SOTD. :)
