I like the way they edit the performances from both nights together. If you look closely you can see they mixed in some daylight shots of Bono/Edge on the edge of the heart.

To be fair, that is just my best interpretation. When he starts doing that, whos to know if hes actually using all real words.

Very likely he sings this, it sounds like it.

Just watched the clip, and this sounds pretty accurate to me.  Damn, that's rather intense if Bono came up with that himself, and also - WE NEED THAT BONO BACK!

It's ok, we have that Bono forever on YouTube.

I think the current Bono is where he is supposed to be. He may not be climbing the walls but still has an incredible amount of intensity. No, we won't get that performance again but I think the cost would be way too high. And he has some cool new moves, imho, even if more subtle/sedate. Lyrics are still wicked. Did you see updated lyrics on Bullet on Fallon? OMG - and that's an understatement.

On which dvd's Uteotw did Bono moan "comfort me, comfort me!"
Ahlalalala ahlalalala <-- intro to uteotw lol!

Was it ie2015 paris? Or just a fan-shot ie2015 USA concert? I'm digging that too.

When I see Slane, Zootv, JT80s and older... This band is too much. They are like 10 different iterations. Bono is 10 different larger-than-life rocker personas (some cooler than others).

Yes, that was i+e tour.
I think he recites something from the bible between Raised by wolfes and End of the World., and the comfort me ist part of that phrase.
And at the end of UTEOTW its from a William Blake poem.
