I wouldn't draw any conclusions like that from the Roxy gig.

He also uses the black pickguard Telecaster for Vertigo (not white pickguard) which he uses e.g. for California so I'm tempted to say he just didn't want to carry more guitars than necessary for the gig.

Dallas ain't getting younger either.

That gig isn't even part of real tour, so yeah, I won't say Elevation isn't played with SG anymore.

None of us doubted it's gone

As said he just didn't wanna carry too much rig for a short gig.

I kind of hated the sound of that Explorer in Elevation for KROQ performance anyway; it sounded sorta trebly and weak....

Honestly Elevation hasn't sounded the same since 2001.

Not only talking about Bono's voice but Edge's sound was vastly different than it is today (same goes for Beautiful day, which is ridiculously distorted nowadays during the chorus!). And I loved the end of the bridge much more than the bluesy riff he plays nowadays...

It's not as good because now they just play it for crowd interaction instead of just shredding it up like on Elevation Tour.
Of course, I'd rather see them play the album version because I like the more electronic sound in it. It had very slight Pop vibe in it, but then the Bomb-Dad rock era killed anything like that.

I miss that extended outro most, where they would play the main riff 4x instead of just 2x, and Bono would adlib some additional vocals. I did like that extend intro they did during the Vertigo tour, made for a powerful audience interaction part. Which was probably what cemented it into a crowd pleaser.

I always thought the album version was meh. Very lackluster and uninspiring. First time I heard the live version however my mind was truly blown. Like I was listening to a cover by a hardrock band. \m/

Each of us may have a preference of a particular tone or arrangement. That is completely valid. But I like that Edge does try to reassess how approaches a song and try what might make the song more appealing to the band and the fans. While those changes might fall flat with some, I salute him for taking the time and making the effort.

The midi control board in the ROXY. I dont see the Kayfuzz here... And The Edge Played Elevation and i See the Pod. It's a new Pod? or the old Pod Pro? Maybe if he is using the Pod HD he can emulate Fayfuzz.. What do you think?

Cool pic same CAE RST Midi foot controller and floor set as seen
a while back. Vox 1 then Fractal im sure it is.
Pod is no doubt Pod Pro. the kayfuzz sound am sure you can get
on the DM4 with a expression pedal or the AXE XL is doing it.
