I didn't get Pop until I'd joined this place either... although a little while ago now.

Wow, that OTH was indeed amazing. Especially the improv bit.

Not biased at all


I'd rate Bad in Boston on 26/05/05 to be better than Melbourne II, but only by a little.

Bad on RAH kills any post-1989 version. There are a few sensational Lovetown versions too. I believe one of the Melbourne boots (8 or 9 October 1989, I think) is entitled Bad At Its Best.

I'm listening to this now.

Man, U2 really, really, really need to pull out Pop Muzik / Mofo once again, even if it's for an encore. I think if I heard that live, I'd spontaneously combust.

Edge is really fucking impressive there, he's the star of the song. The solo is really quite distinct from anything he usually did. He goes into overdrive in a big way.
*wants*

I can't think of any improvisation quite as significant as this example. You've got me stumped! Like you say, there are small examples, but that's all I've got.

Which I suppose is what makes this performance even more special.

You don't have it either?!

Here I was, thinking I'd e-mailed it to everyone in existence and then some! Well, it's on its way.

From U2VT:

Quote:
Comments: Out Of Control makes its Vertigo Tour debut. Its appearance is spontaneous; at the end of Until The End Of The World, the band are going into With Or Without You when Bono calls for Out Of Control. While Edge scrambles for the right guitar, Bono has to yell Adam Clayton's name multiple times to get his attention.


ADAM CLAYTON = OWNED!

All of those shredding solos followed a fairly similar template though, no?

That OTH solo is right out of fucking nowhere.

Oh, though the entire band improvises an extended ending of God Part II in Yokohama on 23 November 1989 that's fucking awesome. Don't have it on the computer though, sorry.

Because I actually enjoy church. "Contemporary" church with rock music for the win, although pop theology for the lose.

BTBS at Zoo TV Dublin has a little more than any of the other versions, too.

They did Pop Muzik / Discotheque to open the encore at 17 September 2005, Toronto.

And damnit, now you've got me listening to Mofo. I need to sleep!
