Night in, favourite concert audio

Okay, so I am really craving for a nice U2 concert listening experience, and there's so much to choose from! So to make it easier, I will ask, if you got a evening to yourself, what concert would you listen to?

Not to sound like a broken record because I always talk about this show, but Rotterdam 1/10/90. If that were an official release, it'd be my favorite album of all-time.

Though I haven't listened to the Irving Plaza gig in a while... another great one to listen to all the way through.

PopMart Santiago or London, 2001-08-21. But then I rather watch them.
Another choice to watch would be Johannesburg.
I also like Syracuse from Joshua Tree, but as far as I'm concerned some tend to disagree.

Lovetwon concerts are a great choice either, for example the Dublin gigs. And I've got a DVD from Lovetown Dortmund.

Kiel from ZooTV would be another choice of mine.

Elevation Chicago 5-16-01. Lots of Achtung Baby and a very loose show. Not perfect, but a very good listen (as far as sound quality)...

I actually think the 5-15-01 Chicago show is a better performance. I was at both, and while the setlist shake up at 5-16 was cool, the performance was kind of flat.

Vertigo I'm partial to 10-25-05 Detroit, best show I saw on Vertigo (better than all 6 Chicago shows IMO), great setlist pacing and a solid performance. Quality most likely the London 05 almost complete broadcast (missing 3 songs).

Any of the Dublin Lovetown gigs, but especially 1989-12-26.

1981-11-04, Berlin is pretty sweet too.

Completely agree, great sound quality, great performance, best final night of any tour in my opinion.

In terms of DVD's I love watching Washington 92 and Santiago 98, both great nights and two of my all time favourites.

If it weren't for Red Rocks, I'd say that's the definitive version of 11OTT.

Though that was an October Tour show, not Boy Tour.

Yeah, I figured I'd give the whole ZooTV/Popmart/Elevation fanladishness a rest and mention another tour for a change.
