OK, the Slanes have it on Out of Control. Actually, I hate to admit this, but I haven't heard that version (only seen/heard parts of the Slane show, which sounds awesome). I'll have to buy the DVD and check it out (they didn't release individual tracks from that show on iTunes, other than Beautiful Day, did they?)

I have heard at least one performance of Out of Control from the Elevation tour and it was absolutely fantastic. It was great on the War tour as well (I saw them play it in Cleveland that spring), but I think they got better as a band over the years.

They started to play a very rousing rendition one night I saw Vertigo Boston (May 26) but it got cut short (Edge was about to launch into the solo and Larry took it down a few notches and they went right into the bridge--I couldn't see who pulled back on the reins there but I'm guessing it was Larry, probably feared Edge would self-destruct on the solo and they'd totally lose it--Edge ended up doing some very tasty improv. at that point which sounded unbelievably sweet, a great spontaneous U2 moment).

OK, next song: "Until the End of the World." Best version? This is going to be a tough one--I would say Zooropa Dublin would be right up there. Then again I thought Larry gave it a little extra punch on the Vertigo tour, so maybe one of those shows?

Slane Castle version is one of their very worst. Pathetic, pitiful, really You can really notice how old they are to play that number

80s versions of this classic put Slane Castle onto shame, really

Slane changed the riff, as I said, which is its problem. Best version I'd say, like Ponkine, is Red Rocks 83.

Ponkine, BTBS would be better from ZooTV with Edge's much improved solo, wouldn't it?

5- Cry/The Electric Co. (Boy)
6- Gloria (War)
7- Fire (October)
8- Sunday Bloody Sunday (Live Aid)
9- New Year's Day (Unforgettable Fire)
10- "40" (Unforgettable Fire)
11- Pride (Unforgettable Fire)
12- Unforgettable Fire (Joshua Tree)
13- Bad (Joshua Tree)

Disc 2
1- Where the Streets Have No Name (LoveTown)
2- With or Without You (Joshua Tree)
3- Exit (Joshua Tree)
4- Running to Stand Still (Joshua Tree)
5- Bullet the Blue Sky (ZooTV)
6- Angel of Harlem (LoveTown)

Disc 3
1- Dirty Day (ZooTV)
2- Stay (ZooTV)
3- Gone (POPMart)
4- Discotheque (POPMart)
5- If You Wear That Velvet Dress (POPMart)
6- Please (POPMart)

Until the End of the World Vertigo rules with the new drumming. It's my favorite song, and the Sao Paulo performance is my favorite.

I've got the Ultimate thing that would piss every U2 fan off:
Following in the footsteps of Pink Floyd's 1995 live album, Pulse, I would take all of their best live versions of their best songs and make it sound like one concert.
Simple as that.

That's not a bad idea, as long as it actually sounds like one show. So many potentially great live albums suffer from not offering the continuity of one performance (I'm thinking particularly of Wilco's recent Kicking Television, which pales in comparison to their live shows that I have).

I’m working on a ‘little’ project to create a concert like that myself. Not just by collecting the best versions and songs, but I want to let it flow like a real concert with nice transitions, so I’m busy mixing the songs. I will gladly post the result when it’s finished. Here is my not-yet-definitive selection for the ultimate U2 concert ever:

00 Intro – Sgt. Peppers / All You Need Is Love (2001-10-10 South Bend)
01 Beautiful Day (2001-10-10 South Bend)
02 The Cry / The Electric Co. (1985-03-21 Chicago)
03 Until The End Of The World (1993-08-28 Dublin)
04 Mysterious Ways (1992-10-14 Houston)
05 Gloria (1989-12-26 Dublin)
06 Sunday Bloody Sunday (2001-05-03 Cleveland)
07 Please (1997-09-04 New York – MTV VMA)
08 City Of Blinding Lights (2005-09-21 Chicago)
09 One (1992-04-21 Tacoma)
10 Stay (Faraway, So Close!) (1993-08-28 Dublin)
11 All I Want Is You (1990-01-09 Rotterdam)
12 Kite (2001-05-03 Cleveland)
13 Sweetest Thing (2001-05-25 Toronto)
14 One Tree Hill (1989-12-26 Dublin)
15 Where The Streets Have No Name (2001-05-03 Cleveland)
16 Walk On (2001-12-24 Miami)
encore:
17 Out Of Control (2001-08-01 Arnhem)
18 Running To Stand Still (1993-08-28 Dublin)
19 The Fly (2006-02-20 Sao Paulo)
20 Bad (1990-01-10 Rotterdam)
21 Ultraviolet (Light My Way) (1993-08-28 Dublin)
22 With Or Without You (1992-08-16 Washington)
23 Yahweh (2005-05-12 Chicago)
24 "40" (1987-04-29 Chicago)

As for Out of Control, I just that song, but I did not yet found the definin g version of it. Arnhem 2001 comes close to me, but the quality is not the best. Slane and RedRocks are both very good.
For Until The End Of The World, I like the Zoo TV Dublin the most. It sounds fresh and just rocks!

Glad I was able to help. Pink Floyd did a great job of making it sound like it was all one show. But, that was Pink Floyd. Not only that, it was David Gilmour's Pink Floyd and Roger Waters was long gone. I don't think Waters would've liked Gilmour's live album.
Also, if U2 did something like that, the amount of bitching and complaining would be intolerable. I think most folks would clamor for just one live show. But, anything is possible. Pearl Jam pieced together a live album from different shows(Live on Two Legs) and it sounded great.

one more question for right now.

should i make it career spanning or try and make it like one concert? if i make it one concert i would for the most part only be able to use shows from elevation and vertigo tours because of bonos voice changing so much? or do you think that wouldnt matter?
