Watch Overzealous Fan Play Live Rarity “In God’s Country” With U2 In Phoenix

U2 are already breaking out some deep cuts on their Innocence + Experience Tour, which kicked off a little over a week ago. Last night, during their first of two shows in Phoenix, they tried out The Joshua Tree’s “In God’s Country” after a fan requested it before the show. The track hasn’t been in their regular rotation since the 1987 tour in support of that album, so it took a little extra help for them to figure it out. Bono saw the fan who had requested it in the crowd — “Are you the dude? Do you know the chords?” — and pulled him up on stage. The fan, understandably, was a little overexcited at meeting the band, and went around giving them all giant hugs. After some back-and-forth, they got through the song, and the fan then tried to stick around and sing “The Sweetest Thing” with them, but Bono good-naturedly pushed him back into the crowd. Watch the video below.
