"It's my favorite U2 song, I have to say. Normally, when I hear a U2 song on the radio I cringe. Either I sound like a girl, or the lyric isn't finished. But there are some songs that I really, really do enjoy. Miss Sarajevo is one of them."
- Bono on the release of U23D, 2008
Larry Mullen Jr. is well-known for his dislike of the Passengers album. In 2002, when reflecting on the album, he mentioned while it hadn't grown on him, Miss Sarajevo (with Luciano Pavarotti) 'is a classic'. The song was played subsequently on the 2005 - 2006 Vertigo Tour and 360 Tour (2009 - 2011).
