Best Performance of the Unforgettable Fire

I think this is the best performance of the Unforgettable Fire I have ever heard - Bono sings it absolutely perfectly his voice is huge in this version

I'm guessing Bono sings with his "Kermit voice" on the "Unfrogettable Fire" then?

We were all thinking it, but I'm glad someone said it.

For me the best vesion of TUF was played at the second Wembley gig on 15th of august 2009. It has best bridge/instrumental part plus Bono snippeting "A Day Without Me"... On U2Start page there is bootleg from this show (choose 4 stars rating version) and sound on this boot is PERFECT!!!

Links to this 4 star version are below:

musically....im really digging Adams bass line in the 360 version of the song....but singing wise.....bono is killing it with his reluctance to sing the full chorus
Best all round versions were on Joshua Tree tour

I never did like how they played this song live in the 80s (I don't think it ever lived up to the studio version)... I love it now, though!

i love how now Bono has added a bit more of a chorus to the song (staaaaay now, staaaaay now, staaaaaaay in the moment, etc) as the studio version of the song had a looser chorus - for me the song is the best it has ever been right now

This is probably the only U2 song that I truly care for that has not lived up to the studio version live. Not in the 80s and not now. From what I've heard on 80s boots, I prefer those versions, but as Ian said, I wasn't there, so I can't know for sure. As for the 360 tour, his vocalizations over what I call the "James Bond Gutiar Solo" really irked me. Nevertheless, I got to hear my favorite song of all time live, so ^_^.

i accidentally hit back and lost my post, but basically it was a x2 of what ashley said.

i had tears when i heard this in chicago. it equalled one tree hill in auckland for best live music moment of my life, along with ultraviolet! and liam finn.

guh.

I can't tell if people are joking or not but this is wayyyy less Kermit than in the 80s.
