"When we’re leaving for tour, my family is in very good humour which is a real worry because I’m thinking, ‘Can’t you cry?' My missus has been playing hard to get for quite a while now and she’s an elusive character"
- Bono, 2014
The title of the song Hawkmoon 269 came from a place U2 passed by during the Conspiracy of Hope tour called Hawkmoon. The number 269 stands for the amount of mixes the song needed before it was ready, it took the band three weeks to record.
