Kite + Vertigo = Perfection

i hope for the next tour U2 keeps Kite the way it was for vertigo tour...that vertigo styled beginning with bono singing that unbelievable opening "oohhh ohhh ohh ohhhh..."...and then the solo..it was perfect!

lets hope they don't change a thing for the next tour...

Wait, which version of Kite are you referring to? The Australian versions are clearly superior to any other versions of Kite ever produced...

Before 5th leg of Vertigo tour this song didn't speak to me too much but when I heard version from WITS Single, I've fallen in love with it.

That's the one he's referring to, with that sort of tribal chant/wail at the beginning.

It was beautiful in Auckland, but the solo from the first Melbourne show is TO DIE FOR. It just keeps going up and up....it actually sounds like a Kite escaping on the breeze.

Anyone have a link to the best version? Youtube?

Which show is the WITS single version?

All the versions form youtube are awesome, but awful quality.

the one on the wits single has been edited WAAAY down, i saw the video of it on youtube, awful quality but you can tell it is the wits version, sounds (ish) the same, but is also longer, but then again most songs released live today are edited down.

shame, i still think we should petition for a soundboard version of melbourn. should sound immense!

I just wish they would have kept the "I want you to know..... you don't need anyone or anything at all....." part.

I don't like the beginning of the Vertigo 'Kite'. The perfect version for me would be a hybrid of Elevation and Vertigo 'Kite.' Same beginning as Eleveation with the ending of the Vertigo version.

I'm absolutely in love with the KITE versions from the fifth Vertigo leg, I've heard all of them, some of them are so beautiful it makes me cry.

I love the beginning, it gives me shivers everytime Bono starts singing, and Edge's guitar is just magical, I don't even mind the length, I think it's a perfect closer and a good song to show Bono's vocal abilities.

but bono's chant thing in the beginning is sooo good...it's an example of how his voice gets inside you like no other
even if someone else hit those notes it still wouldn't sound as great

anyway, anyone know of good audio/video version of vertigo Kite?

At Melb 1, I got shivers up my spine when he did the "chant" at the beginning... it was sooo beautiful! And of course, sounded even better there than it does on the bootleg!

... and Edge's solo?

The whole peformance of the song, and releasing of the kite, was perfection, and utterly touching.

too bad that Edge is fumbling his way through his solo a bit at times
not that often he gets to do a solo anyway lol
