Larry singing backup?

For the live performances of Surrender, did Larry provide the backup vocals during the chorus? Or was it Adam? I'm pretty sure it wasn't Edge since he was occupied with the lap steel guitar. Thanks for any insight!

Cheers,
- Jim

Surrender, and it was adam backing for that there are quite a few pictures of it, and on youtube there's a clip of the song, where you can clearly see Adam singing

oh and Tuwie, Larry also did ZooStation backing vocals during AB era, and ofcourse Numb

i know he does sing on it but it looked like he got a bit carried away and joined in with the crowd singing that part!

He also sings the "Sunday Monday Tuesday..." part on Daddys Gonna Pay. Also don't forget about Love and Peace ("RAH-LEASE, RAH-LEASE, RAH-LEASE!") and singing irish drinking songs on Zoo TV.

Yeah...that`s right. ( he sings along with the Whohoho part before the God I need you help line )

But M.Drug live they used a back-up track instead of Larry singing live. ( check out the Chicago dvd , Larry playbacks )

And during leg 2 and 3 they even left out the backing track.
Coz Bono let the crowd sing with him.

Cheers ,

Larry also sung during the final refrain of Sunday Bloody Sunday on the War Tour. You can see him singing quite clearly on the 1983-05-30, Devore bootleg DVD.

He might have also done backing vocals on Two Hearts Beat As One during that era. I can't remember. I know at least one of Adam or Larry sung on that song, but I don't remember which (it might have been both).

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
