June 5, 1983 - Red Rocks - The setting - The weather blew ok I agree but the setlist and energy were tremendous. That or any Joshua Tree tour show. I skipped it because the ticket was $30 and I was just getting really into the band. That's a regret my friends.

That is probably the best U2 360 Setlist to date.


I would say Live Aid 1985 just to see Bad. Changed rock history.

Yes, surely a regret Gravy!  I was in the nosebleeds for JT and paid $16.00. I still have my ticket stub. By the JT tour I was already a long time fan  :D  I am soooo old.  ;)

U2 360 Croke Park 2nd show [saturday night]

To exprience U2 in Dublin was an experience ill never forget , the whole city was U2 mad. I dont think any other artists has that type of following in their homeland, people had traveled from all over the world to be there. Brilliant

Zoo TV night 2 in Sydney (the one filmed for the DVD).

That show was such a rollercoaster and the final encore where they played Love is Blindness was just heartbreaking.

I'm so, so gutted I missed that show. I went to Wembley one and the setlist just doesn't compare. Didn't you get a 40 snippet also? Fantastic.

It's exactly the same setlist as Dublin III, my favourite show, but with Until the end of the world added! That's just killer.

I have *never* seen UTEOTW performed live. Damn I should have gone to that second Wembley show.

Dublin III was killer though. Great atmosphere, great setlist.
