The Vertigo Tour. City of Blinding Lights opening is a sight I'd give anything to see

Zoo Station, Mofo and Elevation.

I really like City of Blinding Lights, and Return of the Stingray Guitar, but they don't reach those three IMO!  :D Breathe is a great song but it didn't work as well as I'd thought it would as the opener- possibly because the song itself is too slow after the opener. I still think NLOTH should be the opener on 360!

Streets is great but should never have been the opener, likewise 11 O'Clock in TUF. The Ocean as opener is just.... why?

Zoo Station, Mofo and Elevation.

Clacking Bell, this disturbing trend of agreement goes on...

Wish you could have seen Elevation, TUC.  Now that's what I call an 'OPENER'.

Streets is an amazing opener, and probably the best, I have never seen a crowd reaction more wild than for any other song than Streets, if you haven't seen this clip before I hope it changes your mind

...Please, never remind me that at the age of ten I was offered a ticket to see U2 at Slane (NOT the DVD night- the other night) with my family and declined.

Iwas small. I didn't like music. I didn't know. I couldn't know... I despise myself for it.
