Since U2 is a group that thrives on playing live it is really hard to pick one feature or one thing they've done for me... I could make a list...

I'm tempted to say Bono climbing the scafolding at Red Rocks, or perhaps the giant lemon , or maybe even that crazy olive straw....but for my money, the most mind blowing thing I've seen, were the Zoo TV televisions all over the stage blinking all sorts of hidden messages.

I like when Bono brings a girl up from the audience and sings to her...

The energy of the crowd is something unseen at any other live event...thats the best part of it to hear the loud roar of apprciation for our favourite band and to see people really getting into it.

I loved it when Bono climbed the speakers...I was open mouthed at that as a 15 year old!

The ad-lib lyrics! Cases in point: Joshua Tree tour, 1987, Denver. During Gloria, Bono accidentally drops his mic and instead of singing "oh lord, loosen my lips" he sings "oh lord, strengthen my grip."

But there are hundreds of examples. The location-specific section in Out of Control where Bono talks about their early experiences in that town. In Denver he talked about playing The Rainbow Music Hall back in '81, for example.

Of course, there's always that moment when they walk on stage and you hear the electronic sizzle and pop of Edge plugging in his guitar.

When the lights/screens behind them turn red. Because that means they're playing Streets. And when that happens, there doesn't seem to be any distance between a fan anywhere in the building and the band. Everybody as one.

That to me is one of the greatest feelings in the world.

The impromptu and spontaneous moments from the eighties.
"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."

1) General admission seating chart
it' s fair , and the best tix are the cheapest
works great against Paris Hilton types

2) POP Tv Screen

3) Arena shows , acoustics are good , and you get the audience
