U2 tribute to NZ's Pike River miners, who were all killed in a fatal mine explosion a few days before the Auckland concert.  THey did One Tree Hill (tribute song they did for Greg Carroll), it was so moving . . .

10.  F**K THE REVOLUTION!! - Joshua Tree Tour

 9.  City Of Blinding Lights opening up shows on Vertigo Tour

 8.  Audience sing a long on I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - 360 Tour

 7.  Anytime they play Bad

 6.  The euphoria of the crowd when the lights go up at the beginning of Streets

 5.  The Superbowl Performance

 4.  Live Aid

 3. Scrolling the names of the victims of 9/11 during One on the Elevation Tour

 2. The visual onslaught that was ZooTV

 1. The moment during Streets post 9/11 on the Elevation Tour in Los Angeles when a fan threw an American flag onstage.  Bono then opened up the flag, did a full lap around the heart...flag billowing as he runs, crowd going crazy...as he finishes his lap in time to sing the opening lines of the song....my all time U2 moment.

I'll give it a shot, here are mine:

10. The debut of Mercy in Zurich
9.   Bad at Live Aid
8.   "F#% the Revolution!"
7.   Opening night of Zoo TV
6.   Until the End of the World, Zoo TV
5.   Elevation tour Walk On ending with Halleljahs
4.   The debut of Every Breaking Wave in Hesinki
3.   Any time they play Where the Streets Have No Name
2.   Bono's entry in Turin this year after his surgery
1.   Seeing them in person on dec 1 in Melbourne  8)

Yes, forgot about Until the End of the world from Zoo TV, with all the numbers flashing around, though the Slane Castle version, with Bono kicking Edges guitar and falling 'dead' at the end, was also fab.

Neither- it'll close the main set pre-encore , where it belongs!

I think that One at the Popmart Mexico City show that was dedicated to Michael Hutchence was pretty powerful. You could tell Bono was holding back some tears.
