"Three Live Tracks from Boston" - U2

Promotional Release

Track Listing:

Background Information

This promotional single was released by Interscope Records in conjunction with Best Buy stores in the United States. The day after Thanksgiving, known as Black Friday, is one of the biggest shopping days of the year in the USA. On that day in 2001 this three song single was released in a cardboard sleeve, and was given out for free at Best Buy stores nationwide, and no purchase was necessary to get one of the singles. The three songs are taken from the Elevation 2001: Live from Boston DVD that was available for sale and this was meant as a sampler for that DVD.

The three songs are all slightly different edits from the video. These are not a direct rip of the tracks found on the DVD. All three tracks fade in and fade out, and the CD is not a continuous mix. And although labeled as being from June 6th on the outside of the sleeve, “Gone” is actually the performance from the June 5th show in Boston, MA.
