November 18, 1991: U2 Release 'Achtung Baby'

After the monumental success of The Joshua Tree and its subsequent tour, there was definitely a sense of “Now what?” with U2.  The band, perhaps, didn’t know themselves, which made sense why Bono said at a show in Dublin on December 30th, 1989 that, “We just have to go away and dream it all up again.”

FLASHBACK: U2 Performing “Angel Of Harlem”
