WOWY either needs a kick in the butt or it needs to be dropped though. i'd rather have this encore:

Moment Of Surrender
id flip Bad and Moment of Surrender, but yeah, I'd agree with that.

Maybe they've got too comfortable with the older songs that's they've played a hell of a a lot of times.

Ultra violet's an older song for example, but because they've had to start again and re-work it, they've got the passion back for it

I've been going since 1983 and the pace of all the songs was a lot quicker back then. It was all out attack !!!!

Try listening to Pride from the Glasgow Barrowlands show in November 1984 and you will see what I mean. U2 playing UF songs indoors in a 2,000 capacity sweatpit. Magic.

No stalling for time with un-needed speeches either....

I will reserve judgement for the 360 version until I see it live but....from what I saw,I might have to agree.
WOWY sounds like they want to get thru it and move on. The passion seems to be diminished.If that is the case, please move on guys and leave it out until it can be preformed as it deserves. IMHO.

When you've performed any song for that many years I would imagine it would be difficult to muster up the original level of enthusiasm

In regards to SBS, it is probably hard to put the same passion into it when the specific situation that the song refers to no longer exists!
