^That's what the clip above says its from.

They played it for the 2nd Chicago show, 3rd leg last tour, too (acoustic, but still). Definitely one of the tour highlights for me.

Electric WGRYWH has always been one of my favourite songs live. Shame I couldn't be at that show.

And this is indeed the one from Amsterdam, NOT Boston.

Ah, the solo from 4:28 on is brilliant. This performance has such a distinctive mood about it, something very special indeed.

So uh, why the fuck were they performing In A Little While regularly instead of this?

I didn't realize it was the Amsterdam version. Looked like an Arena that's why I thought Boston, but then again Amsterdam was an "arena" also.

the 'video' on youtube is just a slideshow of random pictures.

anyway, I was there against the rail outside the ellipse for the 5/28/05 show. What a nice treat.

I thought it was a very badly synched video.

That video looks like it's taken from the Chicago dvd or so, I haven't figured the song out yet but it may be Beautiful Day.

And Amsterdam's venue name is misleading, it's a stadium. Yet the name is ArenA.

They played in Hawaii also, last show of the tour. If you don't know the story...it was at a fan's request! Mike I think is his name! He made a sign and said he could play WGRYWH on keyboards, and they pulled him up and played the whole song! It was great! Everyone was so happy for him! It was also the second time they pulled him up without knowing it ofcourse.
This is great!

That Boston show was spectacular, though! The last show of Leg 1 of the Vertigo tour, and it had an awesome setlist! Double Vertigo, the rare Party Girl, the Boy mini set, list goes on. Everything was performed extremely well.

The transition from Until The End of The World into Wild Horses was incredible!

A visit to U2 start for this show comes highly recommended from me!

That was an awesome version! I love the darker tone to the intro. Great. Now I may have to go check out this fabled last Boston show.

The only problem is that the bootleg isn't of very good quality.
