Opening acts

What was the best and worst opening act you've ever seen at a U2 show, any year, any tour? Which ones just didn't fit in with U2 and seemed lame, and who rocked?

Garbage were awesome opening up for U2 during Elevation in the fall. Great band, and they never tried to make us think they were bigger than U2, but still they had lots of energy (even when their amp blew out!).

I loved PJ Harvey during the first leg of the Elevation Tour.

Worst would have to be No Doubt. Can't stand 'em. *ducks*

Thanks, I didn't know they didn't take Oasis to Europe. Looks like you got 2 baldies for the price of one LOL! Any pics of the two cueballs together?

I have to say Garbage did rock. PJ was okay but not my thing.

Garbage was excellent. I haven't seen any bad openers yet. *crosses fingers*

Worst band: Smashmouth. I know they're really popular and everything, but they just turned me off. Their set sounded like a bunch of noise and every time they stopped, the lead singer would be all, "f--- this and f--- that." I have nothing against the word, but excessive, unnecessary use of it just annoys the hell out of me.

Best: PJ Harvey. That woman doesn't get enough credit. She rocks!

Skunk Anansie? It HAS to be them, can't think of another bald lesbian in a band... I didn't know they opened for U2, kinda cool.
