Longest live version of Bad?

Anyone know U2's longest live version of Bad is to date? If not longest, perhaps the best (all opinions welcome). I have quite a few, but just wanted to know what all you U2 experts think.

I am asking because it is my fav U2 song and its most recent use as the closer of Chicago 5/12 (of which I attended) was f@%&ing brilliant!!!

Yeah, but a lot of space was due to Bono making his way down to the young lady in the crowd. What about rocking it long and hard?

East Rutherford, April 15th 1985 is the longest version of Bad, I believe. 16 minutes and 15 seconds.

It's not the longest, but... I love the version on "Wide Awake in America" I would like to get my paws on the 11 minute version you mentioned.

That was my first show ever. No wonder I became such a big fan!

If anyone has a recording of that show, please let me know. I can't believe I've never been able to find it. I did find info on one site that said it was one of the best UF recordings for sound quality. I think the title of the boot was "Unforgettable Night."

Actually (i know Axver would back me up on this) there's a 20 minute version of Bad that they played back on the UF tour in 84 or 85. I used to have the mp3 and i remember that it was really really cool! i'm not sure of the date but i know it was close to 20 minutes.
