Discotheque on the Elevation tour........

I wanted them to play this song at MSG but to no avail.....

I love this song!!! Did anyone hear it on the first leg? How was it and was the crowd reaction?

I was so surprised when they played it on the 13th in Chicago, because they had scrapped it a few weeks back. I stood there watching in amazement, and someone leaned over to me and said:

"You don't actually like this song do you?"

and I replied -

"As a matter of fact I do, and if you say anything like that to me again I'll throw your fucking ass off this balcony"

Thank you.

It was quite common for the Elevation BTBS.

Discotheque was one of the highlights for me.

I actually hated that song till I heard it live opening night, it was so different I nearly didn't recognize it.

I desperately need to hear this one live. I would love to hear Even Better Than The Real Thing followed by Discotheque, two good dance songs in a row.

It was AWESOME!!!

Where I was the crowd reaction was pretty good.. not as good as for IWF or Pride though.

It's such a kickass verison this tour.. I wish it was gonna be on the DVD!

This version was incredible ... superior to popmart version!

When Bono sings "Looking for the one.." and Edge hits that MASSIVE d-chord I got shivers, it was so much heavier than I'd ever heard it before... Staring at the Sun tag was pretty cool too.

oh yeah, crowd went nuts

And I felt like a star...

I loved DISCOTHEQUE this tour, so glad to see it played. Like I've mentioned (and Acrobat took this one step further some months ago with a hypothetical setlist), I'd love to see all of POP and ZOOROPA live. Just as a "F@#$ you" to everyone clammoring for SBS and Pride (please put both out of their misery!!!)
