I think Pride on Vertigo sounded the best it has since the mid-1980s, but that's mostly in terms of Edge getting the guitar tone right and Bono decently delivering the verses. He's just gone on the chorus. I feel like he should at least sing it with Edge.

Or, you know, just ditch the song from the set. Your casual fan is going to cheer wildly whether U2 plays Pride or Desire or New Year's Day or EBTTRT or AIWIY in that setlist spot.

Another good do-do-doo sort of song is Dream Theater's Pull Me Under. The intro is awesome for that.

though bono seriously butchers the lyrics on this one, in very subtle ways


I would die for NYD instead of Pride or SBS or Bullet. I would take it 3 times for all of those

I second this entirely. NYD still sounds good live.

I was inside the ellipse at that show.

Still can't decide if that or 26/05/05 is the best overall U2 show I've seen. Obviously, OTH at the two Auckland gigs are my top U2 live moments, but for overall shows, those two Boston gigs are easily the top two.
