Thanks for the insight everyone.  For those who haven't purchased this album, I think it's a must have for your collection.  It's just classic U2 in the '80's sounding their best.

No it isn't, but it's still great!

They didn't play Streets that night.

I agree. Especially if JT and R&H aren't enough JT era U2 for you. :D

This in my opinion is the GREATEST PERFORMANCE OF WITH OR WITHOUT YOU EVER!!!!

The passion, the voice that can make anyone melt, the Shine Like Stars verse, the Love Will Tear Us Apart snippet, the multiple Ohhhhhs, the multiple With or Without You verses and creshendos.  The most powerful performance of any U2 song, maybe ever

This moment is how I discovered and got into Joy Division.

Yes! I was watching this performance the other night and about died. The Shine Like Stars cinched it as my favorite.

THIS.

Edge is totally on fire even though he's wearing a dropcloth, Bono is completely ON, the crowd is INSANE....

I STRONGLY suggest that anyone who is thinking about getting the JT Box to get this concert does so, it's ABSOLUTELY worth it.

It's on special at Amazon.com right now for $39.99 - a STEAL as it's usually more like $80 - put it on your wishlist, all!!!

Absolutely. The emotion, the rawness... It's achingly beautiful.

I think R&H pips it by a nose because of Larry's drumming and Adam's more audible bass.

Own the DVD and downloaded audio from Itunes for Paris. Great versions of TUF, Bad and RTSS too.
