I'm quite happy with both, so do whichever suits you best. E-mail will spit it back if the file size is over 20MB.

Thing is, he doesn't have that excuse! The guy coming onstage and playing it happened in November 2001, and they'd already done the song in August that year. That particular performance of it was pre-planned. Plenty of time to rehearse. And Bono still totally flubbed it. I was blown away in Auckland in November 2006 when they did One Tree Hill, not just because they did it for the first time since 1990-01-09 but because Bono NAILED it.

And yeah, the debut of Zoo Station on Vertigo on 2005-03-28 (last played 1993-12-10) was a complete lyrical flop for Bono ... despite the fact they'd rehearsed it fairly extensively the previous few weeks. "I'm ready for the ball and the ... bat / I'm ready for the ac-ro-bat!"

I'll gather them up and see how big it is.

Is it that difficult to sing TUF guys? Or pretty much anything FROM TUF but Pride? I mean these days it doesn't even feel like Bad gets a good turn.
Yeah, that really bothers me. Though at least most of the time beyond ZooTV and Popmart, you've got at least a couple of rarities floating around at least semi-regularly. Look at TEC on Vertigo, or OOC on Elevation. In the eighties, even when the sets were static, that often still meant you had something like I Threw A Brick or Seconds or Party Girl locked in. But ZooTV and Popmart bug me for how overtly they were just new shit + greatest hits.

And god, somebody needs to smack U2 with a UF vinyl and make them do ASOH, Wire, and the title track again. And debut Promenade.

Ahhh, I didn't know 'cause I don't know a whole hell of a lot about their concerts in general, so I wasn't sure whether or not they had done it before that guy came on stage or not. And One Tree Hill had to have been awesome live.

That must've been quite the funny sight!

Hah, yeah, the ZS/Fly/Elevation (yes, Elevation) combo that night didn't work so well for Bono. The wackiest part is that it followed the Human Rights segment and Pride/Streets/One was the first encore.
