Both. They've mastered both areas equally and beautifully.

While they've mastered both areas very well, I think they'll be remembered more as a live band.

I would say to the average person on the street, they would say both ...

But ... I think for us "die-hards" we will remember them as a live band. There is nothing better than a U2 concert ...

I was listeing to JT on the drive to work this morning and when BTBS came on I thought ... boy, this sounds a whole lot better live... expecially when Bono goes into the whole rant thing

Not that the studio version isn't great, but it does't grab you by the shirt collar and throw you up against the wall.

I think they'll be remembered as a live band, because of stuff like Live-Aid and ZooTV.

Both. They've put out great album and done great shows. But I think they will be remembered a bit more as a live band because they are so damn unbelievable live.

This question doesn't even need to be asked. Live. It's where they excelled, its how the reached us, its how they grew, its how they became U2.

They will definitely be remembered as a live band. Last year when they were touring, that was all this forum would talk about- how they can have thousands and thousands of people together in one place and each and everybody comes out feeling like they had an individual show. It's the way that they connect with their fans, and that's what seperates the men from the boys.

they will be remembered as a studio band
the number of people who have heard their album work on the radio/bought one of their albums etc is far bigger than the number of people who have seen them live/bought the live video's

Well, there are the shows that have been shown on TV. Granted, seeing a show on TV isn't like seeing them live. But neither is a video. They blow me away even on TV, so they will be known for their live shows. They may be better known as a studio band by the mass public, anyway.

Unquestionably a live band.

They've always been known for their great live shows, since the early 80's at least. I've seen and known several people - casual fans at best - who were just completely blown away by the live show.

Yes but I would argue that what Salome said is true for practically all major rock acts.
