WHAT a comeback! (Spoiler)

BAD is back from Brussels 2 and it's an AMAZING version! The best I've heard it all tour- and it's been brilliant this tour!  :o Part of me is insanely jealous that I missed it by two nights but on the other hand, lots more people out there have never seen it and I'm really glad that they'll get a chance to.

They've brought back the 'end' from the Vertigo Tour where the song fades out and then suddenly CRASHES back into being with a second climax, which I find absolutely gorgeous. This song has been criminally underplayed on U2 360 and I hope it secures a more regular spot now! (Although they should definitely move it in the setlist. Seriously, between Angel of Harlem and In A Little While?)

Neither do I actually!

You can actually see Larry stop drumming on it before the second climax and then Bono shaking his head to show that they're playing on!  :D

I noticed that, too.  I actually thought for a second, "Uh oh, they're loosing it."  I love being wrong sometimes. I've already watched that three times!  They MUST keep it in the set list in the States next year!  It's actually my only set list hope.  I'm pretty easily satisfied, overall, but seeing Bad live again would make me over the moon happy.

Awesome!!! Most of the time, Larry is right about pushing Bono to move the show along.   But, this time, I'm so glad Bono overruled him! 

Great performance!  I wish they would have done that in Dallas last October!

OMFG THAT WAS AMAZING!! what on earth got into Bono at the end? I felt like he was back in a club playing his heart out with his three best mates like there was no one else in the room.  It was such a beautiful moment!!!!!

Ah, ya gotta love U2 fans' ability to find something to criticise :)

You see, it starts with this, but then you'll be wanting to specify which songs come before and after :)

I think he's played guitar for Bad every time on 360 - certainly did in Cardiff anyways (but he was a little drunk that night)

Oh, I don't care where in the set they play it, but if Edge could wear a leather jacket, I'd be OK with that.  :)  And you know, if this is what 50 looks like, I say bring it on!  They all are on fire!

Hardly what I'd call a big criticism, I'm just delighted to see it back!  :D I do think Bad's one of those songs like Streets or WOWY that should be placed carefully in the set though, it's a VERY hard song to follow up!

Was the guitar actually plugged in? Could you hear the notes or chords he was playing?

Cheers,

I got bad twice last year, I hope it's played in Rome! Great to see him overrule and continue, reminds me of Live Aid
