Title: Best U2360 Concert So Far
Post by: U2-obsessed and proud on February 19, 2011, 02:01:01 AM
I chose the concert in Turin.  Bono's triumphant return put it above any other concert they will ever perform basically.  And the fact that they debuted 3 unreleased tracks, and dusted off Miss Sarajevo and HMTMKMKM was stellar.

And please dont vote "other" just so you can say your own show.  Try not to be biased concerning your own concert experiences please  ;)

This was hard! I finally chose Turin though, because of the three new songs... (starngely, I only remember two).
Wanted to say Auckland or Sydney though. ONE TREE HILL! And the amazing Love Rescue Me.

Wembley 2, I was there so it helped but they were on fire that night.

Turin, though I admit I am biased by the fact that I was five rows away from Bono for it. [/Endless gloating]

Went with Amsterdam, it was above average, but 2010 Helsinki with the impromptu No Line and first airing of Every Breaking Wave is just as good a balance.

Toronto 1, 9-16-09. Bono's voice was incredible and the setlist was packed with rare gems.

9/29/09 Landover, MD at FedEx Field...it's the only one that I attended, so it's the best.

Turin, even though I didn't attend.

The fact that here was Bono, hopping around on stage months removed from back surgery on a condition that could have ended his career, is truly incredible.

I voted Brussels 2, not only because I was there  :P but especially because of this magical moment in the rain: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4LQT7JYf2s

And also because of this (Until the end of the world):  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEzNjpDB41U

Perhaps this (Mysterious ways): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Sh9KOgoZzE

And this (the introduction of Elevation): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XST13Gs3dfQ

I am somewhat biased, I admit ;)

Sydney 2. That was the U2 experience I was waiting my whole life for.

I went with Cape Town because there was magic there that evening. This was very emotional for Bono to perform in the land that he has devoted much of his life to help. I could hear it in his voice. Chills went up and down my spine. No contest here for me.

But runner up would be NY 2   ;)   ;D

You know, although I voted Turin, it is a bit of a silly poll.

Because the truth is, the best concert is almost certainly some random gig from the middle of a leg where the band were excellent, the audience really loud and @U2 was loudly complaining about a boring setlist.
