I would have to say Wonderwall, at least at the one and only Oasis show I've seen, although Don't Look Back In Anger was equally well received.

Most definitely. This is definitely the high point of the show, and I've rarely ever heard a better segue at a live concert. The only thing that tops it, for me, is Please ->Streets (although I would have preferred to have witnessed Running to Stand Still -> Streets live).

As the OP said, I think that Wake Up would also fit the criteria.

It's better this tour.
I think the return of the red screen, versus the African flags or whatever, also has something to do with this.

Better transition and less speechifying helped as well.

Agreed, Ms. Stem.

By the way, speaking of Streets, Arcade Fire, and Wake Up it still gives me chills to think about Arcade Fire coming on stage to Streets as a way to acknowledge U2 using Wake Up to start off their Vertigo shows. That was a great moment.

it's nothing more than a public service announcement now. or it was on the bomb album tour. blending it into "one" with all the save africa/aids/red this that and the other thing/political bono bullshit speech, completely killed what i expected to be the highlight of the show. now, i was pretty well on my way to losing any interest in u2 and mainly went to that show because i'd never seen the band live before and still considered them to be one of those bands i should see live at least once. and kind of sick of anything off JT from complete overplayedness. but i still had some pretty high expectations for that song live, and was actually even looking forward to it.

had the band just played the fucking song, it would have been fine. would it have been the most amazing thing i've ever heard? who knows. probably not. but it wouldn't have been the steaming pile of shit that they turned it into had bono not been talking for half the intro. and don't get me started on flashing all the "text such and such to this number to sAvE tHe wOrLd1!111!!!!!1111!!!!" crap over the tv screens.
they fucked up streets on vertigo. i didn't think it was possible to do, but i suppose it proves that you can accomplish anything if you really put your mind to it.

it's been fixed.

Probably Fake Plastic Trees, though I'd say they're far from having one seminal song.

Fair point, that might be the one.

glad to hear it.


no, really. that's...comforting. yeah, i guess comforting is the best way to describe it.





i wish i could say "what's the frequency kenneth" tore the roof off the place at the rem show i went to a few years back. the band kicked ass on it, i was just really disappointed in the crowd. i was pretty disappointed in the crowd in general at that show, though. nothing like being the only one in the entire section of seating that's standing (til i made my brother get up, and then the people behind us told us both to sit down). singing along and dancing in your seat is incredibly unsatisfying

For Radiohead, I'd say Let Down.

And Sufjan's Impossible Soul, though not iconic, definitely had the Streets feel.

It's tough to say for Radiohead since they're setlists aren't really built for that huge moment. There have been many shows last tour where Paranoid Android, Karma Police, and Fake Plastic Trees weren't even played. Then again, it's a Radiohead show so I'll be good with anything they play.

Here's another couple I thought of:

Muse - Knights of Cydonia
The Killers - All These Things That I've Done or When You Were Young

The Killers put a lot into those two tracks and the crowd response is pretty great, agreed.

Muse didn't even play Knights when they opened for U2 and the other time I saw them they opened with it, so I'm not saying it's not their streets, but I don't think they quite realize it is.

Though they are no longer active, Pink Floyd had "Comfortably Numb." I believe that it is still the pièce de résistance for both Gilmour and Waters as well.

As for Radiohead, "Idioteque" seemed to get the most enthusiastic response at my show. But I also do not think that they have a definitive live song.

Night 2 is MUCH better.

Phoenix, Vampire Weekend, Brandon Flowers, The Black Keys, The Temper Trap, Neon Trees, Florence & the Machine, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and Broken Bells.

It's a great lineup and I need to get tix.

That's night two's line-up? !

And Jesus, KROQ loves the Killers. I think they've only not been at one of these in some form or fashion twice in the last 7 years.

Too bad know it's all about 'Shipping up to Boston' for the crowd of Departed-soundtrack-listening bandwagoners making up too much of the audience in recent years.
