Bad - Elevation Tour

Could someone please recommend two or three standout performances of Bad from the Elevation Tour, but not including the one on the Boston DVD. I'm making a live compilation of the song, and would greatly appreciate some help for this tour. Thanks so much!

James

Its quite difficult for me to pick any stand out performances of Bad during Elevation because I didn't like the sound of his voice, he seemed to struggle with the big notes on some of the eighties classics. That said the first night in Antwerp is pretty good, its directly from Bono's earpeice so sound qualities awesome, and I've also heard Houston 01 is very good too.

Really? Is it the one from U2start, or another? If it isn't from U2start, could you let me know where you got it?

Cheers!

The first performance of Bad on Vertigo (4/15/05) is my favorite live version ever. Sorry I can't help with an Elevation version.

I'd like to hear this one, just on the basis of the explanation!

New York 2001-10-25 - whole show is brilliant! Bono's voice was exceptionally good for that show.

Apologize for the delay, but here's the compilation. Had trouble with mega upload so I used send space. Feel free to reupload to a file hosting site of your choice and share with others!

These are what I believe to be the finest performances of Bad taken from each tour since 1984. It's also an interesting look back at how certain details of Bad have changed over the years, and also the way the band have played the song, as they change little things up for it from tour to tour. The Popmart versions probably feel and sound the most different from all others, with the louder sequencer, tuning down a full step, etc. Love Bono's voice at Santiago, especially during the buildup to the climax. My personal favorites are the Lovetown/Zoo TV renditions. Be sure to listen to 1992-05-27 from Zurich, just for Edge's solo... He did some wicked stuff for the song back then.

Anyway, please enjoy!

Is that the one with The First Time played essentially in full, then they go back to Bad again? That's my favorite version ever.

That's the one, my friend! Easily my favorite from the Vertigo Tour. Sensational performance.

New link for the comp is in the Music on the Internet forum.
