Get on Your Boots- What do you think now?

I must admit in a live setting this song really fits well. Its a real rocker and sounds so much better live. What do you think?

I've always really liked this song and knew that it would take off live...

I do really wish though that they would bring down the screen and do something similar to the early TV performances of this song.

For me the earlier performances were compromised because my favorite studio portion of the song was garbage live ("Let me in the sound").

But now they've nailed it.

I liked Boots then. I like Boots just as much now... not really any more or any less. Great song.

Wow, it has really kicked off live hasn't it, great stuff. Lots of energy and the crowd always seem to be into it.

Still need to find more good live 360 videos of Boots, which is the best?

Sounds better live.

It's fine as a single, but thankfully, the remainder of the album isn't filled with the poppy drum tech.

It took a while to get used to.

Gets a good crowd reaction and has def improved since the award shows. Just wish they made more of the intro. Would be a better opener than Breathe with a long intro imo

I've always loved the song and I love it now. I never thought I'd hear U2 make a song like that again.

I really love the live version and the "future needs a big kiss" intro bit.

I still think it's a really fun and energetic song that is perfect for a concert. Especially one in a stadium with a structure like the Claw. I'd really love to see how it works out as an opener. I think it would start the show off crazy, and get the crowd right into it from the get go. The song is fast, and upbeat, and loud, and easy to jump up and down to, which goes really well with those insane Euro crowds.
