I don't see how anybody could think that Streets wasn't at its absolute pinnacle during the ATYCLB tour.  It was literally orgasmic.

The intro coming up during Never Walk Alone did it for me. Ps. Favorite part of a U2 show for me when they play Streets, I take my eyes off the band for a bit and love watching the crowd for it.

Out Of Control: War Tour
I Will Follow: War Tour

Sunday Bloody Sunday: Joshua Tree

Wow...spot on. My only differences are for SBS (has to be War tour - specifically the Red Rocks video version - Edge rules!) and Streets (love JTree 2nd leg version, although I have to say, PopMart version was dance-y, different and fresh-sounding).

Good God, I am a nerd.

Also saw U2 live for the first time during PopMart.  My first I+E show is at the end of the month in Chicago, so things could change when I see them in person, but for now:

The Electric Co: Vertigo (esp. as a lead-in to An Cat Dubh/Into the Heart)
Out Of Control: Elevation (I think it was 3rd night in Chicago - this and 11 O'clock Tick Tock were played back-to-back!)
I Will Follow: I+E
Vertigo: Vertigo
Sunday Bloody Sunday: PopMart
Even Better Than The Real Thing: PopMart
Mysterious Ways: ZooTV
Until The End Of The World: ZooTV
Angel Of Harlem: LoveTown or Tonight Show w/Jimmy Fallon (the additional horn accompaniment adds SO much to this tune)
Desire: LoveTown
When Love Comes To Town: ZooTV
Bullet The Blue Sky: ZooTV
Pride: LoveTown
Beautiful Day: Elevation
With Or Without You: Joshua Tree Tour
COBL: Vertigo
Where the Streets: Elevation (it should be required that this is preceded by Bad/40 or All I Want is You)
I Still Haven't Found: LoveTown
One: ZooTV
40: Vertigo

Thanks! I was between War or JT Sunday Bloody Sunday (I love how they played with a slow intro on that tour), so it can be either tour. You're right about Streets, your choice is also perfect. Good taste!  :P
