Best version of Vertigo



this has to be the best version of vertigo I have ever heard. Its still brand new and there is so much energy and wow Bono's voice is huge on the second chorus

Thanks for posting the video..but honestly I've never really been a big fan of Vertigo.

I have always been a big fan of 'Vertigo' and I agree that that was a sublime performance. Maybe the best I've ever heard. Thanks for the post.

(What I'm not a big fan of in this performance is Bono's slickster-mullet.)

i really enjoy the 360 version. it was actually one of the highlights for me at the Chicago show. the energy is awesome and the final minute is pure rock. love it!

I don't like any versions of Vertigo. That being said, my favorite is Honolulu 2006.

360 version, with the siren-like intro and the new drums in the ending.

i like the siren too on the 360 versions but Bono doesnt realy hit the notes in chorus on any of the 360 versions I have heard he seems to have lost that feeeeeeeeeel sound he could easily pull of in 05

The rock n roll hall of fame version is just so good because the song is new they are being inducted into the hall of fame and the blow the roof of that place and Bonos vocals are absolutely great

I love that siren. Gives the song much more energy! People have to go nuts, if they want it or not..

I prefer the 360 versions, with the extended outro. The Rose Bowl performance was good, with the "It's Only Rock N' Roll" snippet.

I watched the RRHOF 25th anniversary footage this christmas, and couldnt' stand how bad Vertigo was performed. Bono completely ruined the whole melody.

Interesting to see it was so much better when they were inducted themselves.

For me it's probably the Vertigo tour version with the Stories for Boys reprise. Though the 360 live versions were pretty good too.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

Most 360° tour versions I've heard of Vertigo simply rocked
