In 1995 U2 worked on the Passengers project with outside guests, producing an album called “Original Soundtracks 1”. Guests on that project included Brian Eno taking a bigger role musically than he had in the past, as well as Luciano Pavarotti, who particpated on the song “Miss Sarajevo” which was released as a single from the album.
That same year, Bono and The Edge, as well as Brian Eno agreed to appear at Pavarotti’s annual benefit concert held in Modena Italy. The concert in that year was held September 12, 1995 at Parco Novi Sad. In attendance was Diana, The Princess of Wales. Bono and The Edge, along with Brian Eno performed “One” and “Miss Sarajevo”, with orchestral arrangements by Craig Armstrong. Pavarotti guested on “Miss Saravjevo” as he had on the album. At the end of the benefit performance, many performers including Bono and the Edge, returned to the stage to perform on “Nessun Dorma”.
The entire performance was released on video as well as in audio format the following year. Included are the three tracks on which members of U2 participated, “Miss Sarajevo”, “One” and “Nessun Dorma”. A portion of the proceeds from the concert and the recording were donated to War Child, to help the children of war-torn Bosnia.
When “Miss Sarajevo” was released as a single it too included this performance of “One” from September 12, 1995. That version was edited different so that it is 5:32 in length instead of 5:06 as found on this release, but they are from the same performance of the song.
