Video Information

U2 did a mini live concert on the rooftop of the Republic liquor store for the video shoot for “Where the Streets Have No Name”. They played a number of other songs, and played “Streets” a number of times. A legion of fans descended on the filming in the down town area, and police eventually shut down the show. This video includes a long intro which quite often when played, the intro to the video would be not shown. The intro includes the end of “Bullet the Blue Sky” being played on the radio and a DJ announcing to LA that the shoot was taking place. The song starts about 2 minutes into the video.

During the concert the band performed the following songs:

  • Where the Streets Have No Name
  • People Get Ready
  • In God’s Country
  • Where the Streets Have No Name
  • Sunday Bloody Sunday
  • Where the Streets Have No Name
  • Where the Streets Have No Name
  • Pride (In the Name of Love)

The news of the video being shot, was widespread on radio, and caused many to show up. In the background of the shoot you can see the sign for the “New Million Dollar Hotel Roslyn” which would inspire Bono later in life as well.
