WOWY Argentina

Does anyone else think this is an excellent preformance of WOWY. Reayl love it the song realy was preformed better vocaly on the 4th and 5th legs of the Vertigo tour. I love the way Bono sings the second with or without yoooooooooou (after the oooohh oooohh part) at 3:39 realy beautiful.

They should have used this preformance for U23D

here is the link

WOW - what a great call.

The only great performance of this song since Joshua Tree days.

Thanks!

I disagree, Bono's voice sounds rough in this cut. The performance in U23D is much better in a number of ways, particularly the clarity of his voice.

hate to be a kill joy but i think it sounded terrible...pretty much the whole tour with a few exceptions...his voice was cracking and raspy, he was singing off key on some parts for some reason, and that attempt at the falsetto outro was horrible

this coming from a huge fan

OK - the outro was horrible. I give you that.

This *was* an inspired version though relative to any version since JT days...

He was trying new things...holding some notes for an extended time (and it worked!)...did not sound like he was croaking at short blips the whole time like usual...

Yes he was raspy but he always is near the end of concerts these days. Plus there was only one or two off notes...

I guess I am just seeing the positive (which is substantial relative to most live versions of WOWY these days) and you are pointing out the negative (which is easy to do with this song live other than the famous R&H version which is inarguably the best live version ever.)

This is a shit version.

WOWY has suffered ever since MacPhisto started singing it. Ever since then he started the talk-sing thing through the verses...

But I have to say, I was suprised by the 3D version since I had almost dismissed this song...

actually, this performance is quite good IMO...thanks!

I think I've seen this before, but forgot about it...the outro falsetto part was a little weak, but it was still there...the rest of the song was incredible...especially at 3:05 mark, wow!

not as good as the 5th leg versions, although those are among the great WOWY performances...

with how good bono's voice is these days I wouldn't be surprised if they brought this song back next tour and it became one of the highlights of the tour, really...

u guys are judging this preformance from based on past ones. Its actully pretty good vocaly i think yea he sings it a little different but he actully uses his big vocal strenth where it belongs in the song similar to the way it was originaly sung wich he realy hasnt done in like 10 years.

and yea part of the reason he sounds off or a little strange is the audio there is somthing wrong with it even though the video is perfect but look past that because u can see the power he uses on the song.

I agree it kinda went downhill McPhisto era, however the Elevation tour version/s I saw in Earl's Court in 2001 were pretty spectacular - just like the JT performance. Then again it was a pretty extraordinary week... poor Bono was giving it everything he had (it was the week he lost his Father).

I would have preferred if they hadn't included it at all...

There were several other songs performed in South America and even Australia (can you imagine the Australian version of Kite in 3D? ) that would have been much better imo, "fan favorites" be damned...
