Actually, if time went back to the early 80's ... I'd definitely say The Police.
But nowadays, I don't believe that there's too many bands out there that can even "hold a candle" to U2's shows ... they're that huge.

Flaming Lips. FLAMING LIPS.

Wayne is a wonderful one of a kind. What they do is old-school rock happening in a Merry Pranksters meets happy hucksters sort of way.

I saw U2 twice last year (including the magical Melb II) but I still think seeing Robyn Hitchcock and the Venus 3 (with Peter Buck) was the best gig I saw in 2006.

Only MUSE come close just for the sheer power & energy of the band

Paris 04
Manchester 06
Birmingham 06

George Michael was fantastic also but in a different way - beautiful voice and wicked crowd in Dublin last year

Nothing though compares to my first U2 concert - Croke Park 85

The Tragically Hip on Canada Day. I saw them on June 30th in 2002 on Citadel Hill in Halifax (my first concert EVER), and last year on June 30th in a park in Charlottetown.

The Stones show was wayyy up there too, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have. It was pouring on the day (and night) of the show.

I was in the fortunate position to see both Pearl Jam and U2 within a few weeks of each other in 2005. It's an interesting comparison: U2 put off an amazing show, something that was big in every way--big emotions, big effects, etc. On the negative side, it was also a bit of a fashion show, and I got the sense that some (if not, many) were there for reasons other than the music.

With PJ, both shows I saw were like performances around a large campfire; it was very intimate, yet powerful. I also got the sense everyone was there for the music.

there is only 1 band in the world who could come close to U2 and that is MUSE but no one else even touches either of them

Depeche Mode...I don't know if anyone has said that but I think they are amazing live, not as good as U2...but in terms of if i had the chance to see one of the two bands, I would have a hard time deciding which one to go see live..


(never let me down again)

(enjoy the silence)

Radiohead and the Flaming Lips came close, but U2 will always rule.

I enjoyed Midnight Oil better because I was on the front row,
whereas my U2 tickets have always been at the top of an arena or stadium and they look really small.

I guess I need to fork out more money for better tickets next time U2 rolls through.
