I know that he did it at least in Wiener Neustadt (Austria) 16-08-97
he said "fuck that" before the song.

But I don't know, if he done it at any other place too (except Mexico City)

I think it refers to the coughing/laughing part.

It was pretty cool IMO.

well, I was at 2 major concerts, U2 last year and the Rolling Stones this
I was both times on the floor (btw, it was an airfield, so there was only

needless to say, that the Stones weren't half as great as U2 :))

there were 73000 people at the U2 show and 70000 at the Stones concert

the newspaper reported both years, that no excesses happened
the crowds were peacefull, and there was never a big problem!

all you have to do to get a great place is waiting for some hours
personally I don't mind it, because in that way I don't have to spend big
big bucks that I don't have

I heard that someone payed $300 for a frontrow seat.
we have standart prices for the floor, so I payed about $55 and I stood
