"If you want to take a shit picture you might as well let me do it" - Bono during Trip Through Your Wire

Does anyone know if this shit picture is around? Would be really cool!

Haha, I remember hearing this bootleg for the first time around 1988 and thinking, "Umm, 'SF' doesn't stand for Sinn Fein when you're playing a show in San Francisco, bruh."  ;D ;D

The SF thing was total pricksville.

The shit picture wasn't too bad - guy got hopefully a great selfie out if it, and definitely a story - but he could have been a tad kinder about it.

Thankfully he worked on his personality since that time, because that guy was a total asshole and I hate him.

But jesus could he sing. Sigh.

His singing makes watching that show worthwhile.

NEW OBSERVATION!!

I detect that the asshole in question was NOT ENTIRELY SOBER during these events.

Thus giving us an even more honest glimpse into the extent and depth of his assholery.

"Assholery" is a fine, fine word. May I borrow it?

Oh FFS cut him some slack, 1987 was peak IRA terrorism. THe Enniskillen Remembrance Day massacre happened a month later. There was an issue with Irish-Americans romanticising the IRA too, the band kept seeing it throughout their US tour. People waving IRA flags at previous concerts if I recall correctly. Considering the tensions at the time in Ireland, good on Bono for ranting. I wish we saw more of THAT Bono today, the angry Bono who didn't take shit from anyone.

Bono destroyed a budding photographer's career, they were too ashamed of their "shit picture" to ever pick up a camera again.

He wasn't really going off on a photographer though was he?  I took that as he was just having some fun.

Yeah I was being facetious, Bono was being cheeky with the camera thing.
