Favorite live performance of this JT tour?
« on: October 11, 2017, 02:31:08 PM »
If you had to pick your favorite live song from this tour what would it be? My vote is Exit. It was a song I was never really hat into but that performance was unreal! I love listening to it and remembering that moment. What's yours?

I think Bono put forth a special effort on "Exit", so I'd agree with you there.  It's a great song, and he added some excellent theatrics to enhance the moment.

Exit was unbelievable...but it's hard for me to pick one favorite from this tour. I'd never seen UV, so that was very special for me. And, they did a really nice job at my show with my all-time fav, Streets, so I really can't choose. (I've admitted before to being wishy-washy - still goes!)

Exit, love it when they explore darker themes and thought Exit worked particularly well on this tour.

I loved everything, especially "Bad" because it's my favorite and "Trip Through Your Wires" because it's such a fun romp on a pretty heavy album and Bono was being funny, but yeah, "Exit" was insane. What a wild horror trip. You could hear minds blowing all around as the big crescendo kept going. I was also amazed by how much more fun "Elevation" and "Vertigo" are as live experiences, and the crowd here really went nuts for the Spanish in "Vertigo," which made it even better. "Ultra Violet" was beautiful as well.

ASOH, saw it at the Rose Bowl. MOTD and Exit otherwise.

MOTD was also a very moving performance. It made me feel like I was back in my immigrant grandmothers apartment which was over 30 years ago. At one point I felt like I could almost see her on the screen.

Another vote for MOTD from me.  I found that song and One Tree Hill very harrowing and moving.  Subjectively, the fact I never saw these two tracks performed on the original TJT tour probably also helped them seem more special to me.

Yes, One Tree Hill was beautifully done. Another that I really enjoyed was Trip Through Your Wires...what fun, and they did a great job with it.

Yes, "One Tree Hill" was fantastic.  The poetry of that song has always moved me.

Red. Hill. Mining. Town.
I honestly thought that on the original JT, Red Hill Mining Town was on the lower middle tier
But the JT30 version is on JT top tier!
