Awesome Discotheque from Vertigo



Bono's voice, Edge's guitar, Adam's bass, and Larry's Drums. They all sound absolutely perfect. Top, top version of this song from the last tour. Very inspiring.

My favourite version from the Vertigo Tour was when Bono did the snippet of Relax

Disco on the Vertigo Tour was amazing. Too bad they only played it twice... apparently, Edge didn't like the arrangement.

Here are bootlegs for both shows:
U2 start.com | Bootlegs | 2005-09-17 - Toronto, Ontario - Air Canada Centre - A rough IEM bootleg (captured from Bono's earpiece) rated 3.5 stars, although Disco is perfectly clear. This has Pop Muzik at the beginning and a snippet of Relax at the end.
U2 start.com | Bootlegs | 2005-09-20 - Chicago, Illinois - United Center - A three-star (although very listenable) audience bootleg, without Pop Muzik and the Relax snippet, but a much less 'messy' performance than Toronto. Also, Bono's voice is in absolutely amazing shape, and there are some falsetto screams at the end that sounded like they were imported from 1985 or 1993. Well... I'm not sure why I typed this... it's the one in the YouTube video.

Here's part of Toronto:



I wish the whole show was recorded with that audience source. It could make a decent matrix with the IEM.

I saw it on tour both times, plus I heard it rehearsed in Toronto before it was even played.

So you were sitting outside of the doors with us? Because there were only like 6 or 8 people there. I think a few more people showed up a little later, though.

Heh. It was like it was a perfect alignment of the stars that day, or something. I hope some day you get the same chance.

You need to get into town earlier next time, missy!

Although I think the main reason we got to hear it is because it was the beginning of the leg.
