1. Crazy Tonight


Lots of awesomeness. It's all sorts of awesome.



2. Unknown Caller (The whole singalong worked brilliantly)
3. Get On Your Boots (It just rocks. Jump and forget about everything else)
4. Breathe (I like the drum intro)
5. No Line on the Horizon (Great song, works brilliantly live)
6. Magnificent (Still not my fave song, but it wasn't bad at all)
7. Moment of Surrender (Can't stand the studio version, but live it's not bad)


I don't think you can compare listening to bootlegs to seeing it live. At all.

axver, do you think it's possible the band could drop their opening song? lol!

i feel the same way about Breathe. it's not a bad song, but it is one of the more overrated U2 songs. i'd rather they open with something else and then give Fez-Being Born a try....or maybe an acoustic version of White As Snow.

Breathe is just plain boring. It feels like it's part of the intro music; besides Larry's intro, it hasn't got enough energy and means nothing to me. I consider NLOTH to be the "true" concert opener.

yeah, i think Magnificent could work too. Breathe's beat is just not fast enough to be an opener. the first couple chords pump up the crowd, but judging by YouTube vids, it just seems like halfway through the song, the crowd is just begging for something more exciting.

From the youtube video.... (waiting like a lion in a cage for London1...)

1. Crazy tonight REMIX (unreal to me with such a weak studio version)
2. NOOOO LINEEEE!!!! (Reminds me more and more of an AB song.... love it)
3. GOYB (found it great live, one of the highlight)
4. Moment of surrender (first 3.5 minutes)
5. Unknown caller
6. Magnificent (kind of disappointed actually....)
7. Breathe (besides Larry entrance, it sucks.... )

1. Crazy Tonight - the remix is excellent. Helps that it is played after COBL and Vertigo.

2. Moment of Surrender - Following Ultraviolet and WOWY certain aids it, but it's a great closer to the show.

3. NLOTH - The live version is much heavier and more rock-oriented than the album version

4. Magnificent - Might be better as the opener.

5. Breathe - A good opener and provides the backdrop to NLOTH

6. GYOB - Much better live than on the album

7. Unknown Caller - Decent live and gets the people singing, but it's more of a concert recovery song than anything else.
