Boots can't be gone any sooner. Wow I actually turned the channel on this one, which I never do. This song needs to just go away. It sounds alright on the radio but live; it just looks stupid. Bono and the eyeliner. lol. What is he thinking? Edge and Adam did their job but looked uncomfortable at it. I think the direction Bono was going for has no horizon. This was a complete embarrassment, to make matters worse, it made coldplay look good. :( :-\

no way. U2 still rocked it. what do you care what Bono looks like anyway? it's about the music. They played well. It's the sound guy's fault .HE RUINED EVERYBODY. If I were Bono I'd take my microphone and beat him mercilessly over the head! I mean, there's no excuse at that level of production. NONE. This guy should be hanged!  >:(

Good song, great performance, bad sound. "Love and Peace or Else" or "Bullet the Blue Sky" would lead into this one nicely.

yeah, must have been great there at the show. Because they got a standing ovation. I played it back on Youtube a few times. The standing O was not for Whitney Houston as somebody here said. Bono gave a great theatrical performance. The Middle Eastern Harmonies came through a bit more. I thought Edge was off key for a sec. but I believe it's really just the way the harmony is supposed to be.

Yeah, if you watch closely, you can see the audience starting to stand just as they finish up the song, Bono hadn't introduced the coked-up trainwreck Whitney Houston yet...

i watched it again this morning, and it's actually much better on the second look.  I was underwhelmed last night, but now I can see how into it the audience is.  They were obviously hearing something we weren't.  The standing O was definitely for them.  Bono's doing his damndest to get the thing "off the ground".  He's strutting, swaggering,-  i don't know why, but I like it better today.

I remember The Police opening it up in 2007.  It had the same sucky sound quality.  It's as if going live takes them by surprise.  I had to turn on my surround sound to get a good listen to it.  Thank God for the MP3 that was floating around because it really sounded great in comparison to what was coming out of the TV.  And you get to hear how much the crowd was really in to it.

I thought it was a great performance last night (despite the poor sound) and even better when I watched it this morning.  I was blown away by Radiohead, but they've performed that song live a few more times than U2 has "Boots" ;)

Did anyone notice Larry stand up to drum for the "Let me in the sound" part?
