I believe this was the fifth and final night in Chicago during the I&E tour.  I went to night one and two (24 and 25 June) and remember Bono being hoarse especially during night one.  I thought I remember reading he had bronchitis.  I'm sure by this last show it was cleared up, but wow sounded great!

I haven't visited the forum in a long time and was wondering if this thread was still out here. Turns out, it is.  :D

My custom Zooropa playlist:

Zooropa
Slug
Numb (Best of Mix)
Lemon
Stay
Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car
Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
Some Days Are Better Than Others
If You Wear That Velvet Dress
The First Time
Dirty Day
The Wanderer

Replaced "Babyface" with "Slug". Never was fond of the song. I am aware that it's another song with the word "Don't" repeated multiple times and with "Numb" following it may be a bit much. However, "Slug" is a favorite of mine. Plus, the opening of the song is supposed to represent city lights coming on and since Zooropa is a fictional city I felt it was appropriate.

I wanted to also include at least two songs found on the cover of Zooropa - "Hold Me...", "Velvet Dress". As for "Wake Up Dead Man", I didn't think it fit well in the playlist. The Wanderer is a great finale.

Let me know what you think.

Super Bowl, it was:

Oh Lord, open my lips
So that I may shew forth thy praise

That having also been quoted in Gloria, "loosen my lips."

WOW!! Wow! Wow! What an amazing concert! I've not heard it before; thanks for sharing.

Haven't listened all the way through yet but jumped around on some songs. Bono sounds AMAZING. Not just great pitch, but great energy too. Even his speaking between songs has a lot of verve.

I listened to California, and it was fantastic. Not the easiest song to sing, either.

Love how he opened Streets with "I wanna feel... uh, and run" lol. So Bono.

i like that.  hard to find a lousy version of streets.

i always gravitate to boston 2001 elevation tour

epic beginning on this version where bono quotes from You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.  the quote is a part of psalm 116:

What can I give back to God
    for the blessings heís poured out on me?
Iíll lift high the cup of salvationóa toast to God!
    Iíll pray in the name of God;
Iíll complete what I promised God Iíd do,
    and Iíll do it together with his people.

he's used this before - i think at the super bowl halftime?

my favorite though You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login from 1987

The song is one of their  live moments in every show, my favorite performences of the songs has always been 1989-12-26 - Dublin and 1992 Outside Broadcast MTV.
 In the recent years Bono haven't put much energy and effort on the song, but on the 2015-07-02 - Chicago show he suddenly came in other thougts.
I don't know why he doesn't sing it like this more, he really sounds like he did on Lovetown.

Listen from 2:20:40 in the video below, the lines "The city's a flood
And our love turns to rust" just begin shortly after that time.

Besides the lyrical miss in the opening line of the song, this is one of the  best version ever to me, the band plays it very well and Bono mix his 1989 voice with his current voice and it gives the song an energy I haven't seen since the 80s.

You wont regret listen to this performences :)

A tips is also to listen to WOWY from the show, Bono does a really good job in that one too.
