The Irish rock band U2 performed Tuesday at Kosevo Stadium outside Sarajevo,
site of the 1984 Winter Olympics. Bono, the lead singer who had pledged
during a visit weeks after the war ended in 1995 to give a concert here, addressed the
crowd of more than 40,000 in Serbo-Croat: 'Sing in Sarajevo. It's a present from you to us.'
As many as 1,000 fans braved the trip from the Bosnian Serb republic into the
Muslim-Croat Federation, where the concert was held.
