Comments: This show turns out to be one of the most memorable of the Unforgettable Fire tour. Bono brings a little boy on stage during "The Electric Co.," inspiring a snippet of "Little Drummer Boy." Bono keeps the boy on his shoulders for the rest of the song. Afterwards, Bono gives the boy a balloon as a gift but the balloon bursts right away. Bono then promises him another gift by the end of the show. Bono asks the boy his name, but he seems too shy to answer, so Bono throws his microphone to his father in the audience. His father proceeds to tell the entire Centrum audience that his sons name is Ever Peaceful. "That's about the best name I have heard in my entire life," Bono replies.

Later during a festive performance of "Party Girl," Bono brings Ever and his mother and father back on stage. He proceeds to give Ever one of his hats as a gift and a bottle of champagne to his parents.

These are the very last full performances of "I Threw A Brick Through A Window" and "A Day Without Me. "A Day Without Me" would later be snippeted during the 360 tour.
