Favorite live segues
« on: December 03, 2012, 03:56:32 PM »
Personally, I love it when bands do a great job of transitioning between their songs live. This is one of the (many) reasons I love U2. There are multiple segues I could cite as excellent, but I am a huge fan of Running to Stand Still - Streets (ZooTV Live from Sydney) and Please - Streets (live from Rotterdam on the Please EP).

What do you think?

There was no segue really between Until the End of the World and NYD, but they always seemed to pair nicely

This is still one of my favorites as well. I also like how the band transitions from "I Threw a Brick Through a Window" into "A Day Without Me" in Under a Blood Red Sky. There's so much energy and these are definitely two numbers that are long overdue to make their return to a tour setlist.

A Day Without Me was snippeted quite nicely a few times during The Unforgettable Fire on the 360 Tour.

That's more of a partial set list than a segue

They used to nail the Streets segue every time; RTSS, Please and Bad are exceptional. AIWIY is quite a bit worse, Pride is even worse (And I say this as a big fan of both songs) and the Tutu video was just silly. They got it right again with One/Amazing Grace going into it though.

I'm a massive fan of Lemon / WOWY on ZooTV; and I tend to think that Lemon is overrated.
