Shine Like Stars?

Just wondering how With or Without You sounded? Did they do the Shine Like Stars verse? 2 guitars? And I wonder if he's going to be serenading on this tour...

I've been wondering this, too. There are clips of WOWY, but none show the outtro.

According to the thread filled with people who saw the show, there was no Shine Like Stars, although there was Hear Us Coming on One.

there is full version now on Youtube. No Stars and one of the weakest live versions I have heard them play. Not enough of the guitar at the end and very short. If they are going to drag this song out again at least play it the best way they can. I don't get it.

First shows on the tour usually are the best... they need to get going.... it's still great, but they work it out as they go along.

They probably shorted it because they fucked up the blasted One song

I second this.

Honestly, this has got to be one of the worst WOWYs I've ever heard. Shame too, because I think they could probably restore it to a measure of its former glory. Let's hope it gets better ... or just gets dropped in favour of a song U2 can play really fucking well.

I can live without WOWY and would gladly take another song instead of it. Either they should drop or rework it.

I dont think it showed up at all last tour. I hope they do add the "Shine Like Stars" Snippet back to With or Without You it makes the song so much better. Best live versions of this song were Rattle and Hum and Zoo TV.

I agree, DAMN U2 need to get there act together on this tune!!!!!
The music sounds great, i cant understand why Edge doesent do the solo he done on the Zoo Tv version, which everybody seemed to love, of even the solo he done on the Joshua Tree tour, these sounded great especially leading into Bono's extra "shine like stars" verse, which should be added again!!!

the main problem is Bono tho, why does he sing it with that tired slurred voice it sounds terrible, it was bad on the Vertigo Tour like this and if they are gonna continue in the same fashion they should drop the song now!

I dunno if he struggles to sing it these days, if so drop it! it could be replaced by an equally good tune!

and if its an act I'd love to grab Bono by the shoulders and shake him!

WOWY is the one "warhorse" I can do with out - it just isn't that good live anymore, and it seems to get worse, not better with time. Last night basically proved its time to send WOWY off to the warhorse retirement home. There is no passion left in this song, its just there, taking up valuable set list space.

WTF happened to this song last night. Bono sang the first verse twice. I just finished listening to the bootleg.
