August 30, 1992

U2 played the last of two shows on their ZooTV tour at Yankee Stadium in New York City on this day in 1992. They are the first Irish band to ever do so and only the second rock artist to play this venue. Billy Joel was the first. They played such hits as “Desire,” “Where the Streets Have No Name” and several songs off their newly released album “Atchung Baby.”
