Can't you just picture it ... Bono finishes up the remaining words to "Bad" and The Edge keeps playing. Then suddenly Bono starts singing rejoice , with Edge hitting Harmonics on his guitar. Then the Band stops playing and the crowd keeps singng rejoice , then they come in with "Streets" with Bono doing his opera-ish sustain thing like on the Boston version of "Streets".

I really think the should do the "Bad"/"Scarlet"/"Streets" combo.

Question: Do they still have the traditional flashing lights coming on as the song kicks in?

Running to Stand Still --> Streets was the best transition ever.

That said, I really like this new intro. It gives me chills to hear that chant of "Africa! Africa! Africa!" over the opening notes of Streets. I can't wait to see this live.

A question for those who have been to the shows. Do they still bring up the house lights? Usually you know when that happens because the audience gets overwhelmingly loud. But not so on either of the San Diego shows.

Every live streets was getting better until now. Zootv streets was getting better with the extended synth intro after running to stand still. Popmart streets was rebuilt and sounded more amazing than before, especially with the please connection. Elevation streets still had a good new feeling to it, and I liked that little roar he did at the start. The vertigo tour streets sounds exactly the same as elevation except he yells Africa! Africa! At the start.

I’m absolutely sure it will get better during the tour though, I can see him making a good transition between Pride and Streets.

Pride....Streets just doesn't work for me, IMO.

And the Africa bit is beautiful on paper and in theory, but it stilts the transition into Streets, IMO.

I can see them moving COBL to open the encore, and fade into Streets

Oh you look so beautiful tonight!
oh you...look so...beautiful....toniiiiiiiiiight...
*piano starts going on and fades into the ever so amazing Streets guirar intro*

of course crowd singing along is a must.

As far as those intros go, Dec. 30, 1989 version of Streets blows me away. I love the quoting of Jack Kerouac in the intro.
