Probably if you forced me to pick, I'd take 21 September 1989, Perth, the first Lovetown gig:

1. Hawkmoon 269
2. Desire
3. All Along The Watchtower
4. All I Want Is You
5. Where The Streets Have No Name
6. I Will Follow
7. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
8. One Tree Hill
9. God Part II
10. In God's Country
11. People Get Ready
12. Bad
13. October
14. New Year's Day
15. Pride (In The Name Of Love)
16. Bullet The Blue Sky
17. Running To Stand Still
18. With Or Without You

encore(s):
19. Angel Of Harlem
20. When Love Comes To Town
21. Love Rescue Me
22. 40

That's a pretty damn good one. Except for Love Rescue Me.

Seconded.

U2 need to stop neutering and watering down Desire. It's getting lame. Though the version I saw in Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland on Vertigo's fifth leg was fun. It had nothing on Lovetown Desire, but it pissed on Popmart/Elevation Desire at least.

True. Those tours were the pits for Desire.

U2, in their entire career, have done something well acoustically about 1% of the time.

Of songs played on Lovetown, I'd cut ISHFWILF, People Get Ready, and LRM for Gloria, 11OTT, and She's A Mystery To Me.

And that 1% were album tracks.

QUOTED FOR TRUTH!

The acoustic Walk On was decent, though the electric version was much superior. What I will say about the acoustic version is that it fit the set a bit better. The electric Walk On in the middle of the main set in Brisbane was just a bit weird.

I liked Stuck in a Moment and The First Time acoustic. Walk On was OK, though, as you said, electric was better. Aside from that, I can't think of anything they did well acoustically.

Let's get ready to hate the people mentioned in the comments on this already amazing setlist.

16 October 1989, Melbourne

1. Hawkmoon 269
2. Desire
3. All Along The Watchtower / Like A Hurricane (snippet)
4. Bullet The Blue Sky / Neighbours Theme Song (snippet)
5. Running To Stand Still
6. Heartland (snippet) / Where The Streets Have No Name
7. I Will Follow
8. Gloria
9. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For / Exodus (snippet)
10. All I Want Is You
11. People Get Ready
12. Angel Of Harlem
13. When Love Comes To Town / In The Midnight Hour (snippet)
14. Love Rescue Me
15. With Or Without You / Shine Like Stars (snippet)
16. God Part II
17. New Year's Day
18. Pride (In The Name Of Love)

encore(s):
19. Party Girl
20. 40


Comments: A small group of fans are invited into the venue for the soundcheck and they witness performances of Dancing Barefoot (a Patti Smith cover U2 recorded for the When Love Comes To Town single but never played in concert) and She's A Mystery To Me (which didn't make its concert debut for another 2.5 months).

They share precious few lyrics! I suppose by your logic, Levitate = Miracle Drug?
