"I was very nervous about doing Live Aid, it was such a huge gig. People were queuing up to do it because of the exposure, they were talking about the amount of TV coverage and whatever. It was hard to convince some people that we were there for the right reasons."
- Larry Mullen jr.
The song 'Heartland' is a homage to America and in particular the Missisippi delta that was the birth of the blues that Bono was getting interested in at the time.
