If I knew you could pick 3, I would have picked Elevation and Zoo TV

Technically, I'm pretty sure the Lovetown Tour had a better record of opening with Streets than the Joshua Tree Tour, which very very regularly opened with Stand By Me, and occasionally with Bullet. But even the Lovetown Tour opened with God Part II and Bullet on some occasions.

City of Blinding Lights still gives me chills when I think of Bono starting the show in the center of the arena with the confetti coming down.

Zoo Station was the perfect start to the Zoo TV (but out of context on any other tour)

Elevation with the lights on as a contrast to the PopMart tour.

This. Even though I voted for TJT tour instead of Elevation.

Zoo TV, Elevation, Vertigo

The "Sgt. Pepper's" recorded intro also worked very well with the Elevation tour.
