I never thought it was a good live song.  It's great on the album though.

I think Bono's rough, scratchy hangover voice is what makes it work on the record. Live, its just too slow and vanilla

From u2gigs' April Fools article:

Quote

In A Little While was cut from the setlist in July 2009 after Bono got very self-conscious about the criticism it was attracting. Some time in September that year, his wife gave him a good talking-to and told him to take the criticism in his stride. Now every negative post or tweet just encourages him to sing the song more. He especially likes how well it fits in with the space theme, as the audience's attention wanders, their eyes glaze over, and they space out, staring up at the stars. Larry fortunately shot down Bono's suggestion to replace Moment Of Surrender with a reprise of In A Little While.

Hahaha.

By the way anyone who thinks that concerts need a slow part of the show isn't correct. You don't need a slow part at all. Besides, we get those anyways with other songs like ISHFWILF and Pride.

I think the show would be a bit too breathless and frantic if it was all rockers. I firmly believe that every show needs ebb and flow.

However, where Scarlet, ISHFWILF, Miss Sarajevo and Moment of Surrender are spectacular slower paced songs, I think IALW is just dull.
