Please was performed at the MTV Video awards and Mofo was the European MTV awards, introduced by Dennis F'in Hopper no less.

Oh, yes, European MTV and he had the hooded boxer's robe coming up to the stage, but not on stage. Obviously, I was just clued in to the hooded idea.  ;)

Did Mofo make it through? I LOVE this version!! You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I wasn't clear, I meant to ask if that was truly the official video. I love the ending - Bono's Bongolese vocals and the jam. +++++!!!!!

The version of U2 that performed at the MTV video awards there, THAT'S the version I wanna see again.

And I wanna see the Stones circa 1973.

 :P

No but I mean their performance didn't reflect the U2 of the 80s, or the pompous rock star embracing U2 of the 90s.

I'm not even sure how to describe it.

Ace.

It was almost like a different show when it cut to U2 to perform Please, it almost felt like 'lets cut the showbiz crap for a minute and get down to some serious business'. I remember staying up until 3 in the morning to watch them, it was incredible.

There was plenty of 'Please' in arenas on the Elevation Tour, it's just that it was anything but 'rousing' since it was acoustic and, frankly, a bit crap. :P (Speaking as someone who counts 'Please' as a song dear to him for personal reasons as well as for is general awesomeness)
