Love that part and the guitar solo.

Larry is Dorian Gray. Someone should check his attic for a grotesquely aged picture.

I don't know, I actually didn't think it sounded all that great. Seemed like Bono was kind of just shouting and not singing the words. I'm not that concerned with it as it is a very early performance of the song and it will undoubtedly get better, but still, kind of surprised at how happy everybody was with it.

I gotta say all of the new material sounds absolutely fantastic live! And we haven't even heard a couple of potentially huge songs - Unknown Caller and Moment of Surrender. And there's Fez-Being Born, which I fear may not be played live.

Bring on the tour!

Once again, a great performance. I dont know if it is my crap TV up here at school or the technologically challenged person using it, but I can not judge any of these songs until I plug my good headphones in and get a youtube video.

U2 never really has a bad live performance. I am sure you could point to 1 or 2 times they completely tanked, but it was usually only for a song or 2 during a tour show, etc. There have been somewhat not up to U2 standard performances of songs on TV shows, promotional appearances, etc, we could all point to a few of those. It always happens at least once or twice. That being said, we are through about a month and a half of the NLOTH promotion(starting arguably at inaguration) and NOTHING has fallen flat yet. Every live performance has been top notch, with songs that are much harder than the average U2 song to translate into a live setting.

Through Night 3 in Letterman, everything has been spot on perfect! I have always loved Breathe, Magn, and Crazy but to think that these songs could get even better live on the 1st attempts is just amazing. As brazilian fly said, this is really helping U2, they could not be doing a better job than they are this week of playing these songs and getting so many people, many of whom are casual fans AT BEST into them after the have just sat through an hour of talking.

I hope they play Fez-Being Born! I'm tired of some of my favorite songs being the one or two songs from an album that are never played live! Acrobat, When I Look at the World, Yahweh (never in full band anyway), Drowning Man, Heartland, Red Hill Mining Town. . .

I have no facts to back me up, but Fez-Being Born just strikes me as NLOTH's Acrobat. I hope to be proven wrong.

Anyhow, great performance of Crazy. I hope this helps the song receive the praise it deserves. Definitely the most underrated song on the album so far.

That was truly unbelievable... wow. I seriously don't understand any criticism of Bono's voice.

By the way, higher quality video here: U2 - “I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight” on Letterman 3/4/09 Video | The Audio Perv

Fark they totally nailed it! Can't wait to hear these tunes live, please-fucking-please bring this tour to Oz...

Agree about FEZ/BB - I'll add COL - two tracks that would be tops live.. I don't think they will get Letterman treatment - NLOTH / SUC / MOS / UC will be the deciders for the remaining two nights.. haha - it makes you realise there's some really decent tunes on the album hey..?
