I like the Fly on Elevation but the real crime was Discotheque. Way to take the kick out of a song.

Sure. Thats bound to happen if you're going to go through a listen to the whole tour and grab snippets from left right. I guess it appeals to me because thats the period of time when I fell in Love with U2.

Well the Elevation tour was at its end.....but....y'know.
Actually, that's not the case at all. I've snippet-checked most tours and the following happened:

UF, Popmart: opinion didn't change.
JT, Lovetown: liked them more
ZooTV, Elevation: liked them much, much less

It isn't bad in itself, but compared to other incarnations it is rather bad.
I agree with this partially. I think Vertigo was clearly the best version, Larry's drumming aside. I wouldn't place ZooTV and Elevation that far apart though. ZooTV was solid, while Elevation's reinvention was interesting and one of the rare examples of creativity on that tour.

Quoted for truth. Elevation Discotheque is dead boring.

Well shucks...

It was great to watch U23D with someone who knew all the inside jokes. And I can relate that cori is indeed as cool in person as she is online. Had a great time, cori!

All this talk of Tours/Bootlegs though is going to make me dig up my DVD's and chuck 'em on my External Hard Drive.

It was better than murdering the song acoustically.

Snippet-checking 25 November 1989, Tokyo right now. Mmm, Lovetown.

Some PLEBAn wrote a description of how Bono walks, and I noticed it's the exact same way I walk.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is why you should not go to PLEBA.
