YOU GUYS THIS IS WHAT I NEEDED THOSE FRAMES FOR.
My heroes ♥_♥
Something strange happened towards the end of The Joshua Tree tour. We had campaigned for Martin Luther King Day in Tempe, Arizona, where the tour opened back in April. There was a Governor there called Mecham who was holding out against it and we had got involved in local politics there and took a stand. We went back to Tempe at the end of the tour, in December, to play the Sun Devil Stadium. I was getting death threats throughout the tour. One in particular was taken very seriously by the FBI. This character was a racist offended by our work, he thought we were messing in other people’s business and taking sides with the black man. One night the FBI said: ‘Look, it’s quite serious. He says he has a ticket. He said he’s armed. And he said if you sing “Pride (In the Name of Love)”, he’s going to shoot you.’ We played the show, the FBI were around, everyone was a little unnerved. You just didn’t know, could he be in the building? Up in the rafters? On the roof? During ‘Pride’, I was singing the third verse, “Early morning April 4, a shot rings out in a Memphis sky”. I just closed my eyes and sang. And when I opened my eyes, Adam was standing in front of me.
