The first time I heard Scarlet live in Winnipeg. Total goosebumps.

U2's best? The Superbowl performance.  All 3 songs.

My favorite?  Seeing Beautiful Day live 3 different times

Probably the Throwing Copper tour. Haven't done much since then.

In 2001 after Joey Ramone died Bono sang part of "I Remember You" by the Ramones in Cleveland. 
One of the Chicago shows in 2009 he sang part of "Rock the Casbah" during Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Being a huge punk fan I was beyond stoked, all I want to hear now is him singing either the Damned or the Dead Boys.

If you`re an old fart like me, your favorite moment might be the first time you saw them live in your first U2 concert. Thus for me, it was 11:12:87 and for the opening moments of the Joshua Tree concerts - as featured in R&H.

the band walks on stage against a red silhouette. ... and the music builds ... and then Adam amps in and Edge starts jangling and Larry let's loose on the drums, and then BOOM! Blinding lights came on and Bono sprints around the stages to welcome the audience, and you wonder if you`ll ever feel so alive again. And then you hear a great concert for a couple of hours, with some interesting accents and humble troubadours.  Words can`t really describe the moment.


what song did they open with?

Out of Control at the Meadowlands while Larry had the FOR CLARENCE sign in front of his drums with Mr.  Springsteen in the audience.

I think the moment they come onto the stage for any live show is just magical.  You bought your tickets, you waited, you check out setlists, then all of a sudden you're there and they are about to take the stage.  Nothing can compare.
