That's because an arena is not open-air and a stadium is. That would most likely be the reason why. Plus, Popmart was much louder due to the fact that Bono's voice had to be amplified much louder to reach everywhere in the stadium at an equally ear-splitting level. An arena is closed off, hence less need to be as loud.

Bono's voice has cracked EVERY tour - and it's intentional. He's made a career out of it.

As for which "voice" I prefer, I would have to say Elevation over Popmart, simply because of the vulnerability and emotion. Though he was singing better, technically speaking, during Popmart, he didn't strike as much of a chord with me, as the material was more cerebral in context than it was emotional. That's just me, though.

Popmart -- he could (though I don't think often) still hit the notes on With or Without You. I have yet to hear an Elevation recording where he did.

I'll go with elevation, even though I was at one of the shows where his voice was shot, Albany. It actually made the show more special that he had trouble singing. If you've seen the Boston DVD then you know the story.
