When I Look At The World, what a cool story!

Have you already read about this story below? In case you havenīt, here it goes, itīs from @U2 site.

"You heard last week that U2 finally sang "When I Look at the World" in concert; granted, it was only a brief snippet done by Bono and Edge in Kansas City, but it made a lot of fans very happy. What you probably didn't hear was how it came about.

Tim Cunningham and his friend Erin brought a printed copy of the lyrics of "When I Look at the World" to Kemper Arena. During the day, they made 100 copies of the lyrics at a nearby business and eventually passed the copies out to fans in the GA line, hoping someone would be able to get Bono to notice and take one during the show. Tim kept one copy and had about 30 fans sign it. He brought it into the arena with him where he ended up along the front rail inside the heart, right between Edge and Bono's spots. Before the show started, Tim and his his friends saw John Sampson, Bono's main security guard. They called him over and asked him to give Bono the lyric sheet with 30 signatures.

Tim and his friend spoke with John later. John said he showed the lyric sheet to the band and told them the fans inside the heart had "voted" for "When I Look at the World" and wanted to hear it badly. Bono started reading the lyrics, John said, and Edge picked up a guitar and two of them started working it out. This all happened while Garbage was on stage. And the rest is history. Now, thanks to Tim and his friends, you know the rest of the story!"

I can picture both there on the backstage, Edge and Bono, working hard and fast, LOL, only to please their fans, isnīt it cool?

But itīs also a spiritual thing, because itīs a community, itīs people agreeing on something, even if itīs only for an hour and a half." (Bono, as quoted in the book U2 The Road to Pop)

If only we had known earlier in the tour that this worked, we could have requested SOOOO many songs! "A Celebration", "A Sort of Homecoming", "A Day Without Me" and all those other "A" songs. How cool! Remember this Australia! [oh! another A!]

I believe this story is true. They could just ignore the plea of their fans for them to play the song. But they didnīt. I also believe that they might have had some fun while working on the song in such improvised way, donīt you think?
