Elevation Tour Version of The Fly

I just love listening to Edge's little intro. It's so completely beautiful. The rest is great too, of course, but the intro does me in every time.

When I was at a concert and heard it the first time, the way they did the beginning, I still recognized it and loved it. I loved the way they did the whole thing. But there was this yuppie guy sitting behind me and when it started he whispers to his wife "this is that song Grace" and I said, "no, it's The Fly" and he insisted, "no, it's a new song called Grace" and I almost laughed. I was of course vindicated when it kicked in.

Wertsie I love your sig!

Thanks!

You know, when I first heard the intro in Detroit, I couldn't for the life of me figure what what song it was...But then as they got into it, I was like, "Oh...."

I just love the "Elevation-version" of the song.
It was great, that The Edge was playing the guitar riff of "Ultra Violet" while Bono was singing the chorus.
"The Fly" and "Ultra Violet" were once just one song.(I am sure that most of you knew that before ) It was great to hear parts of both songs being played together.

the best...

I love, love, love the elevation version of The Fly.
I wasn't even that crazy about the song until I heard it live...Edge is amazing. It's one of my very favorites now.

Simply amazing, I think it's even more powerful than the original version. I like the longer introduction and buildup, seems to have even more bounce to it than the original and the original is fantastic too.

I think they should try this type of thing on a few of there other songs!

NYD or EBTTRT to name a couple.

The Fly never worked that well live for me
I can hardly make up the guitar part anymore (except for the solo)
and Bono doesn't sound half as good as on the album version

I did miss the falsetto, but I really liked the elevation version nonetheless. I especially love it on the Boston DVD.

I have to agree with wertsie about the song's intro. Watching it on the DVD always puts chills down my spine. There couldn't be a better intro for what may be their best song.

(Yes, I wasn't at the tour, but I WILL be at the next one now that I'm old enough to take the two-three hour drive to the stadium by myself)
