What is your FAVORITE part of the show this tour? SPOILERS INSIDE!

I figure it'd be nice to have a positive vibes thread about what people love about the tour.

One of my favorites is the simultaneously pleasant and awesome surprise of Bono singing the "Ultraviolet" in the chorus of, well, Ultraviolet. Previously this was Edge only but now he's doing it and it just hits me and I love it.

I also love the visuals this tour.

I'm totally digging the energy of SBS and the green lights, also.

Crazy Tonight remix live is great too.

Ultraviolet!! I've always liked this song but since it's never been given much attention I kinda forgot about it. Now it's one of my top 5 U2 songs! I totally dig the whole thing with the weird lights and the suit and everything. On Vertigo, I always kinda spaced out towards the end of the show b/c I'd get tired and it sometimes seemed like they were just playing random songs, the show didn't really "flow", but now w/ UV in the encore I get so pumped. Also, I've never been a fan of Bono's vocals circa AB/ZooTV so I'm thrilled to have a better version of this song.

I also love the Crazy remix. I was skeptical at first but being there in person, it is so much fun.

I get moving the thread, but I don't get why this one is in the Experiences section yet the thread that mine is basically meant to counter (If you could change just ONE thing about this tour....) was moved to General Tour.

To me they belong in the same area. Just a suggestion

I can't even listen to the original anymore! The remixes and the live sound so uplifting and fun!

"Ultraviolet" is definitely the highlight for me. I've wanted to hear that song live for a long time, so it's always a joy to hear it.

The "Crazy" remix is fantastic. I don't really like the album version, but the tribal remix is uplifting.

I like the change they made on the NA leg following Archbishop Desmond Tutu's message by playing "One", "Amazing Grace", and "Streets". That's a fantastic trifecta.

I was elated to hear "Stay" in Dublin 3. 82,000 people signing along and then doing "Oh oh" after they finished was extremely moving. There wasn't a single dry eye around me in the pit.

Oh, the Claw is fantastic. Wish the stage was a little bit lower, but the entire Claw is a marvelous structure.

Definitely Ultraviolet. Love the way Bono sings the second verse high instead of low like the first verse. This is the way the song always should have been! And love the mike and the swinging, and just everything about it. Perfect.

Biggest surprise was certainly how much fun Crazy Tonight remix was. Having seen it on Youtube, was not overly impressed, experiencing it on the RZ rail was an absolute blast.

While I was quite pleased to see it return, it wasn't as good as when I saw it in 1985. I'm not crazy with the little change Bongo threw in with the "Stay now...stay now..." bit, hurts the flow a little. And on the UF tour, Larry's drum crashes were insanely loud and very cool.
But still a highlight of the show.

Yeah I wish he'd sing the proper words there.

Jesus, just listened to the Toronto 2 boot. Unknown Caller = I LOVE YOU EDGE!
