A little surprised that Bullet the Blue Sky hasn't made an appearance here yet.   That one, and Exit, were brilliant for me, and all too relevant again all these years after they first appeared.

Bullet the Blue Sky was so good on the SoI tour it is hard to think it was a stand-out this time round.

As much as I want to pick a different song, Elevation takes the cake for me from the show I saw. The energy in Raymond James Stadium was like nothing I've ever seen when they played that song. That place exploded!

I'm going to be good and only give the award to one song, but Bullet the Blue Sky, One Tree Hill, and Mothers of the Disappeared deserve honorable mentions. I felt like the show was almost too loud from where I was standing, but the noise was fitting for BTBS (coupled with exceptional production), and the latter two were mellow enough that I felt like I really got to enjoy them properly.

Yep, Exit was absolutely, earth shakingly, end of the world good. The opening four songs were great too but Bad stood head and shoulders above the other three. In Gods Country was great too.

"Exit" was worth the price of admission alone.  The R&H version of Exit was one of the first "OMG U2 are awesome!!!" moments I had at the impressionable age of 13.  It didn't dissapoint.  Hearing tracks 6-11 live at all was a surreal experience.

It's great to have a unpopular opinion ;). In Gods Country had a nice intro and Space Tree was nice!

I'd say Exit,bullet the blue sky,vertigo, new year's day,ultraviolet. Its tough to pick though when you can only afford one show. So many to choose from.

Exit is one of my all time favourite songs and JT30 was my first time hearing it live (ZOO TV was my first u2 show). I thought I would never hear it live and u2 absolutely nailed it. I have never looked forward to a live song so much and have had exceed my expectations. Loved it!! 

Also special mention to TTYW - amazing live!

Exit was AWESOME, I agree with everybody here.  May be the last time I get to say this here but I'm JEALOUS of everyone who got to go to ZOO TV in person.

I'd like to echo the sentiment about In God's Country being very good. I know I didn't mention it as a total showstopper in my previous post, but it was no slouch by any means and one of the show's better points. I get a kick out of the fact that it isn't necessarily one of the band's favorites, because I think of the four singles from the album, it and Streets go back and forth as my favorite. I was thrilled to hear it live, even if I only just really paid attention to it right before the tour (and probably much more afterward).

I really hate to be cliche here but... Exit.  His whole persona, the atmosphere, everything about it was awesome. I also feel New Years Day had more of a bite compared to other recent tours.

Exit or Red Hill Mining Town.  If I had to choose one, I'd say Exit.  It definitely kicked the energy up a notch!
