I'm digging New Year's Day this tour. It's very sharp and on point. Definitely was the highlight to all 3 shows I went to.

 In my opinion the best sounding songs were bad and exit.

I like NYD, ASOH, Bad, Streets, and I have really gotten back in to BTBS on this tour.  I think they really breathed life back into Bullet.

Honestly, though I don't think they have had many missteps this tour.  The only one I'm not into is RHMT.  It seems like the life rushes out of the venue during that song.  Too bad, because it is a great song on record IMO.

Best performances:
Beautiful Day
Trip Through Your Wires
Exit

Worst Versions:
With or Without You
Miss Sarajevo

Completely agree. Also I was shocked but at New York 1 the crowed sucked until Veritgo were they went wild so I'd have to say Veritgo was the highlight of the show. This is probably the best Vertigo has ever been especially with the visuals.

Along with everyone here, I've heard Side 1 countless times in a live setting. Now Side 2.....I have rediscovered "Exit" and "Trip Through Your Wires". Both have been outstanding. Especially "Exit". Such power with that performance. Wow!

In God's Country at Twickenham 1, that guitar solo was loud and ecstatic!

Bad, Twickenham 2. Didn't expect it to resonate the way it did. Especially as I had high hopes for ASOH, but just sounded amazing and hypnotic. The Bowie heroes extension/snippet worked well. Bono's vocals on point.

For me, the highlight of the show was the second "side" of TJT, starting with IGC. Awesome.
