Ultra Violet would be great live!! Love Is Blindness would be even better!
I like Miami...and I especially love the guitar near the end of the song when played live. It's pretty much an Edge Solo and he really rocks!!! Have another listen to the Mannhiem Soundboard Eugene and Boston Audience recordings.... It really is a solo in Boston as Bono does'nt sing for the last couple minutes of the song on this occasion.
Of course in the current era, U2 would have to re-invent most of the song as they would 'nt do it now with the electronica drum beat that dominates the first half of the song.

It'd be neat to hear it played again. I always liked the live version almost as much as the album version. We shall see though...

They nailed that song on the Zoo TV tour! I love the Dublin version from 93, when Bono goes into that Sinatra type thingy to end the song... "lightttttt, myyyyyy, waaayyyyyy!"

ultraviolet and maybe a slightly updated version of WGRYWH (closer to the temple bar edit) would definitely be in my top songs that i'd want to see live list

I feel so much better now that my opinion has company.
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

As the Popmart Tour progressed, Bad was always leading the polls as to what songs they liked to be added to the setlist. By the time they hit South America and Australia, Bad made a return to the setlist.

During the Elevation Tour, the top vote-getter among songs they they wanted played live was Stay. Mostly because no song from the Zooropa album was ever played live in America and Stay was the fans' favorite from that album. As that tour progressed, Stay eventually creeped into the setlist.

The Fly, Out Of Control, and 11 O Clock Tick Tock made returns to the setlist not like the previous two songs I mentioned which was due to fan demand, but made it back perhaps because U2 rediscovered them and wanted to play them live again.

Now, it seems that with fans getting their fix of Bad and Stay already - the top votegetting in the polls for songs to return to the setlist seems to be Ultraviolet. At least that's the impression I've been getting the past few years checking this forum.

So I would say that there is a remote possibility of that song making it back to the U2 setlist. It is one of the best songs off Achtung, and it would be great to see U2 sing it as U2 (and not as MacPhisto).

Hard to believe that it's been more than a decade already since they last played the song live. Am I really getting THAT old?



you are forgetting one thing. All of those songs that made the setlist again...were all previously released as singles from their respective albums. Ultraviolet (Light My Way) never was released as a single.

One song that would be absolutely killer live again would be Dirty Day, I think that song is by far the most underrated song in the U2 catalogue. Edge's guitar in that song, and Adam's bass are sick.

Dirty Day!
Dirty Day!
Dirty Day!

I really like Ultraviolet, but for some reason I feel it lives on AB and doesn't come off that easily.
Whereas Love is Blindness can get off that LP and be gorgeous anywhere...
