"Where The Streets Have No Name" by U2

On this day in 1987 U2 paid homage to The Beatles Final Concert by shooting their video for Where the Streets Have No Name on the rooftop of the Republic Liquor Store at East 7th Street and South Main Street in downtown Los Angeles. Director Meiert Avis managed to get enough usable footage despite the growing chaos in the street below and more police officers than one could expect to find at an actual liquour store shooting before the plug was pulled on the whole affair.
