With Or Without You: hmm, the "tear gas incident" one from 4 July 1987, Paris springs to mind.
Until The End Of The World: 10 April 2001, Calgary has a fierce snippet of Rock 'n' Roll Nigger at the end.
New Year's Day: any from the War Tour, really.
Pride: 31 August 1984, Wellington - one of only two decent live versions of Pride that I can think of (the other being 8 March 1987, Belfast).
ISHFWILF: Don't care. I always skip it.
AIWIY: One of the Lovetown versions where it's played in a sort of medley with Bad, such as 20 October 1989, Sydney.
40: 5 February 1985, Bologna.

Live Aid isn't the longest - there are some other performances from 1985 that pass it in length. I think the longest is 16:16.

What the hell do they do for 16 minutes? Or should I say, how many snippets did they cram in there.......?

I think the longest version of Bad ever was in East Rutherford on 15-04-1985. That night the song was indeed about 16 minutes long. Don't know for sure though, as I don't have the specific recording.

With or Without You

the MacPhisto Zoomerang / Zoo TV Sydney version sends shivvers down my spine every time I see it

Someone set off a smoke bomb in the audience during WOWY. Other than that, I dont think its a spectacular version of the song or anything though.

I think it's quite a good performance - besides being rather lengthy, it has an improvised verse by Bono that I enjoy to listen to.

I actually rather like that one as well, the extra verse was awesome, and B really put some vigour in the 'Ohhh's' 'Ohhh's' at the end.
