Slane Castle video... just a perfect performance of a brilliant song.

Luckily, I've seen concerts from Lovetown on. I really don't think I can pick a faveorite. It has always been the highlight of the tours.
I always get teary eyed and actually broke down and cried at the Phoenix first leg Elevation show with the Bad/40/Streets, I was at the outside tip of the heart and it was absolutely amazing!!!

1. ZooTV
2. PopMart
3. Elevation
4. Lovetown/Joshua Tree (too great a song to be an opener)

Hard to say...I like the JT/Lovetown openers with the energy, like Popmart with the longer ending and the keyboard/techno sounds, but I also like the Elevation version with the Bono running and opening scream.

Elevation.

All those tours had their hook too

Lovetown - opener
Zoo TV - the amazing flow from RtSS
PopMart - w/ Please and the extended-ness
Elevation - the running across the stage, the Slane version is simply astonishing

I can't wait to see wut they'll do for the new tour

Er, Streets may have opened some Lovetown concerts, but it wasn't by any means THE opener. It didn't even open the majority of shows.

I would have to say Elevation, the intro with the prayer along with the intimate atmosphere of a smaller venue just does it for me! If I ever need to feel better about anything I just pop in my Elevation DVD, skip to "streets" and turn it up to "11"!

I just was reading this thread and was thinking the same thing...

I must correct myself here - I made a very slight mistake. I thought Lovetown had 49 shows, but it had 47. Streets opened 24, so yes, it did open the majority and by the faintest margin possible.

On the JT Tour, Streets opened most of the concerts, but it wasn't the sole opener. Stand By Me opened 18, Bullet opened 4, and All Along The Watchtower opened 1. I personally think Streets is the greatest opening song ever made and should return to that position. I fail to see how it was wasted there.

For further setlist opener/closer information, please see the link in my signature.

(By the way, I'm surprised so many people are saying Elevation Streets. I feel they slowed the song down a bit too much, though the psalm during the intro was wonderful.)

While I love the Popmart & Elevation versions, I find Edge's guitar into on the JT and Zoo TV versions much crisper and more pronounced.

The Joshua Tree tour at the LA Coliseum...I was on the floor about 20 rows back.. I must confess to being ripped out of my mind...but the lights went out...and then the music began and the Olympic flame was lit overhead and the place just freaked out over the burning flame, those red lights and Bono walking onto the stage, and Edge's guitar.... the ideal youth experience!!

Running to Stand Still into Streets or Please into Streets??

I've debated this for awhile and have come to find I can't make up my mind. I thought the Elevation versions were good but not up to that level. The best that I've heard was Bad into When I look at the World into Streets, but as far as I know they only did that once. Streets as an opener must have been fantastic I would've loved to have seen it.
