It isn't just you. I love UV, but it is flat as a pancake on this tour. As another poster said on another forum, this is a rare example of the visuals pulling you out of the song and distracting you from it rather than enhancing the song. The video competes, and with the performance lacking from ZooTV and 360, it just doesn't work.

If you have the chance, find a performance of UV from ZooTV -- there's great audio and video of the famous Dublin show out there -- and compare the two. Bono's vocals in 1993 were nothing short of phenomenal.

And I agree with the comments about the visuals; I loved the darkened stage with Bono's wheel light and LED jacket on 360. Loved it.
