Oh my god I love that they are doing Even Better Than The Real Thing on the small stage! And the way Bono built it up in his intro to it is stonking! “Adam’s en suite” 😂😂😂😂

They ended the song on the small stage last tour. Not as good as it used to be

“I’m f*#king Bono!” I loved that.

But holy crap, New Year’s Day took me by surprise. If there was one song I thought I would never want to hear again, it was this one. But they’ve tweaked it just a bit, removed the rhythm section for some considered moments, added some harpsicord and synth over the keyboards, and now it feels right at home next to Blade Runner. They made NYD into a sci-fi song...I haven’t been this interested in NYD in 20 years.

Agree completely re NYD and the show intro. Yes it was great to see Bono so chilled out and chatty 😊

The intro was so good.  The only way to make it better if they'd actually PLAYED Zooropa.  That intro was sooooo Zoo TV/Zooropa, maybe the most obvious nod to that era they've ever done.  I love Blackout, but it was almost a letdown after that intro.

And yeah, New Years Day was really cool.  I almost felt bad that Adam's signature bass line, the hallmark of the song, was reduced to almost a cameo appearance, but it was a really cool version--I'd love to see that live version released as a b-side or something.  It's been awhile since I've really heard a live version of a track reinvent the song.
