I stayed up until the wee hours to see a most bizarre spectacle… U2 on Late Night with Conan O’Brien. While it was far from a total success, the bumpy and embarrassing moments were worth it for the highs, which included performances of “All Because of You,” “Original of the Species,” “Stuck in a Moment,” and “Vertigo” (which was cut off by the network as the show ran out of time… a painful severance indeed.)
