I think it's crazy to hear the opinion that Bono isn't on on Boston. He's so emotional and raw on it. I love it.

I wouldn't say the setlist for slane is fucking awful either. Atyclb tracks on their debut tour. UTEOTW, NYD, Out of Control, All I want is you. Good versions of Mysterious Ways and Bullet.

I’m gonna add to the love for Red Rocks up in here.
I have the most history w that one - somewhere is a battered up VHS tape of the show I got around 1987 or 88 when I was 12 or 13.

I also love both Elevation shows. Great performances, and I watched them a fair bit.

It is. Compared with the rest of the tour especially. 20-song set, with one song, a belter of a performance of Mysterious Ways, inexplicably relegated to the bonus features. They'd dropped all the good Pop stuff, with only ho-hum acoustic performances of Wake up Dead Man and Staring at the Sun. Only five ATYCLB songs, including the four most popular by a mile, and one of them which would be better by the length of the Flemington straight on the next tour. And then, outside of AIWIY, all the other tracks have pretty much been regulars at some point since.

And all that said, it's still a shit hot show. That AIWIY-Streets segue was my favourite until I heard the RTSS and Please segues. Kite is emotional as hell for obvious reasons. One had Hear Us Coming.

On paper, the setlist isn’t great. But good God the performance is next level. They talk about god walking into the room during recording, and He definitley walked in that gig.

I need to watch 360 again, but I remember being disappointed with it because

a) Breathe relegated to bonus track;
b) wayyyy too dark;
c) not enough Claw action.

Do you take Bad/40 over AIWIY?

RTSS, Please, Bad/40, and AIWIY are all incredible segues.

Every subsequent segue has been absolute junk.

I'm just talking about pure vocal power. ATYCLB was one of his weakest in that regard and it seemed like he didn't get it back until the next album and tour. Obviously he could still turn in an emotional, committed performance.

Bullet-Zooropa-Streets is junk?

Got you. Yeah, this is undeniable.

Any time I watch PopMart, I love the first part and then get bored halfway through. I loved the show I was at (it was only the second time I'd seen them, and I had a great seat), but there's something about that tour that makes me never want to listen to/watch even the best bootlegs.

Some great performances of individual songs, and the Pop Muzik/Mofo intro is AMAZING, but as a whole, I find myself being very meh about Popmart in hindsight.

Anybody who talks shit about the Elevation tour didn’t see it live. Those shows were fucking great.

It's the one tour I've missed since being old enough to go see concerts. Still kicking myself.

Zoo TV Live. That opening and Zoo Station, the hard hitting punches of Until The End Of The World and then New Year's Day. And then Running to Stand Still and that segue into Where The Streets Have No Name. Oh God, I could go on but it is nigh on perfect! I had been seriously exploring U2's back catalogue in the months prior to buying that DVD and from all that I had heard I knew they were fantastic but I never knew just how great they were until seeing that recording. I re watched it not that long ago and it still as superb as I first remember it refreshing my memory of how brilliant lesser played songs like Dirty Day and Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Trashed Car were. If I were to show a U2 sceptic evidence of what makes them great I'd show them clips of that gig. At the very peak of their powers and one of only two true musical 'epiphanies' (along with seeing Bruce Springsteen live at Hampden Park) I've ever had.

Honourable mention to U2 Go Home: Live at Slane. It struck me just how intimate and personal that show felt despite being performed in front of nearly hundreds of thousands. In Ireland, not long after Bono's dad died - all makes sense. Some really primal, heartfelt moments in that show - definitely their most personal.

It will always be this for me.
