Awesome version of Gone (and no slamming guitars)

Edge and Bono are REALLY into it

To be honest..........i have always felt this song falls into the category of u2 songs that dont work too well live!

I liked most of that performance but during the ending he sounds pretty bad.

The problem the clips from the Tibetan Freedom Concert is the audio mixing is terrible. It's one my favorites otherwise.

What's cool about this version though is getting to see U2 perform these songs during the PopMart era without the PopMart show and outfits.

It's odd to see them in a live setting that they don't control - probably why Bono has said that they don't come over well on TV. They always look slightly uncomfortable out of their cocoon.

I like Gone live because it's sorta tense and confused. Not your typical soaring U2 anthem.

Gone, one of my all time favorite U2 songs, definitely one of the most underrated and least talked about, it deserves more praise.
