I’m pretty sure it’s a tumor.


I just had my tumour from the Ordinary Love performance at the Oscars removed. It turned out to malign but it was a close call

A little outside the ordinary, but the first time they broke out Ultraviolet on 360 - I think Barcelona? - gave me chills. One of my all time favorite songs, Bono's voice strong and clear, singing it straight-up without any talk-singing or mucking around. Nailed the operatic part. Loved it. Made the band feel alive and vital.

^ It's funny you mentioned this but my first 360 Show with Ultraviolet was pretty awesome.

LIB Sydney zoo tv... I credit that guitar solo as my main motivator for wanting to pick up and learn the guitar. I've been playing guitar for over 20 years now, and while I never made it as far as the Edge, it is something that has enriched my life in so many immeasurable ways.

That was an incredible performance. I've probably watched the U2gigs recording of it a thousand times.

Yes and Edge with glasses, and Bono with a hat. I had not watched this in a while and that juxtaposition stuck out to me too....
I chuckled at the irony

So, some other moments that have left an impression on me:

This is an audio of One from the Tacoma show from April 21, 1992. This one to me is very emotional. I love the high F# Bono hits in falsetto voice towards the end. I haven't found a live video of this performance yet.


The next is With or Without from Sao Paulo 1998. This video wrenches at my heart. The whole exchange between Bono and the fan is intense. He seems so broken up at around 1:30 that he can't get the words out. He also seems to be crying..... (or he's sweating). In either case it's very moving.


I think that version of Dirty Day posted above is one of my new faves. I've never seen it before.

What a great band.
Wow thanks for sharing that Tacoma version of One I've neverr seen that before... Another moment was Kite at Slabs Castle and weirdly enough it took my dad passing away to really get what Bono and his mate's were going through.... "I'm a maaannn not a child..." the hurt the grieving is palpable.. Whatta moment

I was thinking... You kmow what would pretty cool? Is there a resource out there that you could look up great performances of certain songs or great sequences of songs that are a little more obscure. Take that Tacoma One performance. That was fantastic I would never have watched that if not for this thread. I remember there was an unbelievable version of WOWY during the Joshua Tree Tour which included shine like stars and love will year is apart snippets but it also had a great Edge performance....I wouldn't want to say it was a solo but he extended his part in the outro... Does anyone know where or what I'm talking about?

That version of The Fly is devastating. Not just the intro, all of it. For sure one of their greatest live moments ever.

I miss that Bono.

That was great! I can't believe I hadn't seen it until now.

In the intro, am I hearing it wrong, or does he finish with, "And mum, you fall like a burning star.." ?
