Kind of a no brainer, but still great to see.

It was fantastic, for sure, but part of the reason (if not, the entire reason) why was because of all the emotion tied into it stemming from 9/11.

Oh, and Larry in the mesh shirt. Another reason it was the best ever.

Havent watched that halftime performance in awhile. Good stuff. Probably obvious to everyone, but U2's performance is included in the bonus features of the Super Bowl XXXVI DVD. Its OOP but easy to find still.

Poor Bono's voice was NOT in shape that day. It was one of the raspiest I've ever heard - he even strained on MLK. But "Streets" was an excellent song and really brought out the power of the moment. I heard stories of grown men crying with the display of names.

They should have retained that sequence of songs for the Vertigo Tour (I could survive without hearing "Pride" in concert again).

Agreed.

This was a cool concert... Bono's absolutely horrendous voice fit the concert well.

Damn, Prince's performance was sweet.



U2's was okay too, though.

I thought U2 gave a great performance. Bono's voice was a bit rough, he was having some throat issues, but I would rather hear his natural voice than a fake echo.

1. U2
2. Prince
3. Michael
4. Janet
5. Temptations / Boys II Men

And the Stones way down the list.

Finally, the media gets it right.
