How many of you have heard these in person? I suspect not even 50%. A bootleg of a U2 show is NOTHING like being there.

I have personally heard almost all of these in person, save the ocean.

WTF does my post count have to do with anything? There are people on here saying "I like the album version better than the boots I've heard". They are who I am referring to. Preferring the original over some shitty bootleg is a given. Being there is something else.

Angel of Harlem
I Still Haven't Found
WOWY
Pride
Stuck in a Moment
In a Little While
Streets (yes it's a concert must-have, but for me, after that celestial beginning the rest of the song sounds strangely hollow live)

Would've helped if they'd done that full band rather than doing the acoustic "rip the guts out of it" version ...

Most of Pop... Discotheque, Do You Feel Loved, Mofo, If God Would Send His Angels, Staring at the Sun, Velvet Dress, Wake Up Dead Man. These songs sound better on the album then live.

Other songs...

Ultraviolet
Sweetest Thing
In A Little While

Those are off the top of my head.

for me its always going to be Love is Blindness I mean there are a lot of classic songs that when they've been live they blow the studio versions away but Love is Blindness is truelly one that does.

You listen to the studio version and it seems a bit metallic and baseless but live how they build up the climax and Edge's rifts are enough to blow you away.........
