Electrical Storm

I can't believe this great song has never been played live before. Surely it will finally debut this tour...?

So am I right in thinking it's currently the only U2 single yet to be performed live in any capacity?

I hope so, but I am only imagining an acoustic performance.

I can imagine this being really awesome if done right... they should bring Terry up since his atmospheric keyboards would have to be pretty prominent. The song would be like the Orbit Mix... start with Terry playing keyboard, Bono singing and playing guitar, with Edge playing a few notes in the background... then let it explode.

I wouldn't be surprised, though, if the reason it wasn't played on the Vertigo Tour was the requirement for heavy Bono falsetto, something that doesn't always... happen nowadays.

With the current stage setup it could be done impressively with special effects and keyboards.

I'd love to hear it but I'm afraid the odds of it being played are low.

I'd love to hear it, but I doubt it will happen. It's a shame- except for possibly Magnificent, I think it's their single greatest song from 2002 forward.

Quite correct.

I find this thoroughly baffling. It would be awesome live.
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Electrical Storm

This is still one of my favorite U2 songs. Have they ever given a reason for not playing it live?

Love this song so much, we needed more in this vein. At the very least we need it live. Unfortunately its not very likely.

Why shouldn't Bono be "up to it" live?

ES is definitely a song I'd love to hear live, I could see them doing a beautiful live rendition, maybe even accoustic. Just keeping my fingers crossed, but I don't think the chances are very high, since they're never played that one.

Electrical Storm a weak song? I've never heard that one before! Why do you think it's weak?

It was rehearsed last tour, but I don't think we ever got the reason why it wasn't played. Perhaps Edge will try again this tour?

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...
