U2 Concert at Brandenburg Gate

The band U2 gave a short concert in front of the Brandenburg Gate on November 5 to  celebrate the anniversary. They began the program with the tune “One” — a song from their album “Achtung Baby” (“Attention Baby”) which was recorded in Berlin in 1990 just after the reunification. In fact, this song drew its inspiration in part from the reunification. And the original recording of the song was a symbolic moment for the band, which was rumored to be near a break-up over disagreements over artistic direction until they recorded this.
