U2 - Please : Popheart Live EP

Released : 8 September 1997
Recorded : 1997
Genre : Rock
Length : 23:55
Label : Island

Please: PopHeart Live EP is a live EP by the Irish rock band U2. The EP features four live tracks from the band's PopMart Tour, and was released towards end of the second leg of the tour on 8 and 9 September 1997. Two of four the songs on the release were from the band's most recent album, Pop, and the other two were from the band's 1987 album, The Joshua Tree, both of which were released ten years apart. This release was U2's first EP since Wide Awake in America, released in 1985.
Despite its title, this release was not the single to U2's song "Please," which actually was not released until two months later. The EP was released in most regions except in the United States, in which its four tracks were eventually included on the "Please" single, released two months later.
The photograph on the cover of the album was taken by the band's set designer, Willie Williams, and features an image of the PopMart stage arch, with images of artwork by the late pop artist Keith Haring on the LED video screen.
