One. to me, WOWY was performed with real passion for this tour. I also thought it worked very well with the lighting and costume. It was a great fit for this tour.

One.  I never want to hear many tracks off of Achtung Baby performed.

One. It's not the same anymore...

Besides, I'd KILL to hear WOWY live, even if it sucks. Even if it was the worst performance the world has ever seen... it's still worth it for me.

Boom Cha!

It is my belief that a U2 show is not a U2 show without With or Without You and One in the set

What was a U2 show before they recorded those songs?  ???

I LOVE the recorded versions, but Bono cant sing them as well anymore live.

Leave them both in the show though. they make great bathroom breaks  :D

How dare you!!  :P
I would take a bathroom break during the bongo-ified Crazy Tonight

Crazy Tonight was a highlight of the show I was at. It was fantastic.

I say One. WOWY still packs an emotional punch for me while One has lost it.

I knew I would get that question.  I dont think U2 was really the U2 we know and love before Achtung Baby.  Correct me if I'm wrong but they weren't known as arguably the greatest live band on earth until Zoo TV, which was the first tour that featured One and With or Without You

Agreed. :( It's lost its emotional punch.

both are good.

but WOWY is legendary, and much less in-your-face preachy than One.

besides, I'd let both slide if they'd play Mofo.  ;D

Ok, I will  ;D

U2 would not have ever made it in the music business if it were not for their live shows/constant touring. That is how they made their name and became popular. They were known, from very early on, how good they were live. It was really their performance at Live Aid that cast them into the stratosphere and world prominence for their performances.

And then Zoo TV cast them outside of the bonds of our atmosphere and into a territory never explored by any bands before them ;)
