On The Roof In Los Angeles With U2 This Day In 1987

27 March 2021

Band: U2

Single: WHERE THE STREETS HAVE NO NAME (1987)
Score: #1 in Ireland and New-Zealand, #4 in the UK
and #13 in the US

Album: The Joshua Three

The clip for the song, unquestionably inspired by The Beatles‘ legendary roof
performance in London in 1969, was shot on the roof of a store in downtown
Los Angeles
(no idea why they didn’t go to New York, that’s THE city where the
streets have no names) on 27 March 1987. The shoot was ended by the police
when the traffic got stuck as hundreds of enthusiastic passers-by blocked the
streets. Rock ‘n’ roll!!

Let’s hit the roof
