"God is in the room more than Elvis. It feels like there's a blessing on the band right now. ... In the end, music is a kind of sacrament; it's not just about airplay and chart position."
- Bono, Rolling Stone, May 10, 2001
On the third leg of the Elevation Tour (Philadelphia 11/2/01) Bono said the song 'Please' is about people shrinking God down to their level.
