Favourite live versions of certain songs?
« on: January 23, 2015, 11:07:38 AM »
I'm expecting something similar to this has already been done before but I'm relatively new to this...
Here are some of my picks:

New Year's Day - Elevation
SBS - Vertigo
Bad - JT Tour
Pride - Popmart
Streets - Elevation
WOWY - Zoo TV
BTBS - Elevation
EBTTRT - 360
Mysterious Ways - Vertigo
The Fly - Elevation
UTEOTW - Elevation
Stay - Zoo TV

Going to stick with pre-2000 songs as after that they get a bit samey, unless you can think of any exceptions.  :)

'Bad' from Live Aid and 'Running to Stand Still' from Sydney Zoo TV are both stellar. These are the first 2 that come to mind...

The versions within a tour can change a lot, so I'll be more specific:

NYD: Perhaps Lovetown Paris first night, with the "Maybe the time is right" part and fantastically played
Bad: UF tour, East Rutherford third night, over 16 minutes long
RTSS: Joshua Tree, Los Angeles 1987-11-18. Bono improvises extra lyrics and sounds fantasting. Also, Lovetown, Rotterdam 1990-01-06 with a different improvisation at the end
The Fly: ZooTV Milan 1992-05-22
BTBS: ZooTV, London 1993-08-12

Please into Streets (Popmart) with Willie turning the screen from green to red... EPIC! My favorite moment of any U2 concert so far.
