Bono and his bandmates retired the 1981 tune October after the New Zealand leg of their Lovetown tour in November, 1989, but decided it was time to perform it again.

And among the fans who enjoyed the track - and the rest of the group's set - were Salman Rushdie, Jon Bon Jovi, Christy Turlington and chef Mario Batali.

U2 are using their Innocence + Experience tour to revisit a few old tracks - they performed In God's Country for the first time in 14 years on stage in Phoenix, Arizona.
