What's the Best LIVE moment of Mysterious WAYS!!

What blows my mind about this song live, is the fact it starts so simply, and escalates into this almighty epic shimmering soundscape, yet it still retains its simplicity.

My favorite version of MS LIVE is during POPmart - Mexico City, Bono slows down the crowd around the 4:20 mark, then Edge explodes......this has to be one of the most amazing U2 LIVE experiences ever captured on tape. Just wow....

......the Santiago show is a close second.

What's your fav?

Every ZooTV show is amazing, especially the '93 shows. Beyond that, PopMart performances are generally awesome, and Vertigo performances pretty good, too.

10 November 1997, Tampa. Bono snippets It's Raining Men.

Forget all the other performances!

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

He made up for it by "snippeting" I Kissed A Girl a couple of months ago.

Washington Zoo TV is as good as Zoo TV Sydney - It's on Youtube.

Popmart peformances are generally good apart from where the synth gets in the way of the guitar on the outro, or when they muck up the timing so the chords don't fit (Tel Aviv) - Mexico was great though - nice segue into One. Popmart - Nuremberg has some nice guitar playing after the solo, (Edge uses the higher octave more) and a different ending. PopMart Barcelona has a good rendition of My Sweet Lord.

Elevation tour had a different intro, but an extended outro - to allow Bono to do what he needed to do on stage. All decent quality, Elevation at Charlotte was brilliant , had a slightly different slide guitar solo - worth listening too

Intro changed again for Vertigo Tour, straight into the chords. Still not as long as Zoo TV which had the best intro IMO. Outro similar to Elevation tour.

All time favourite is Zoo TV Houston - almost certainly the benchmark. Dortmund is pretty good as well, it has a slight extension at the end of the second chorus into the break, with good screaming from Bono.

I'm rambling now.

THIS. I don't know what Bono is going on about at the beginning, but I love it.
