It was my favorite moment of the show.

It's my 6th or 7th favorite U2 song, and to hear it live, after all years of knowing it wasn't played and the various reasons for it. I love the tuned down approached; it sounds so triumphant.

Yes.

Yes to both of these as well. In God's Country is another, which always sounds rushed & truncated live. And typically the songs that have never made the regular set list that they only pull out for certain occasions (stuff like Spanish Eyes) don't sound as good live.

I thought it was good too. Keep in mind that a "minority position" on here just means 5 people spoke out against it loudly enough from their keyboards.

Just read that U2 are in negotiations to play the U Arena in Paris next fall. That doesn't really add up though, as the US tour finishes end of June and we know it will be straight to Europe. Unless it's early September or thereabouts.

Finally heard the songs proper, and I have to say the snippets did not do them justice.

GOOYOW is pop, but it's a little more muscular than the last couple of U2 pop songs. A real grower, and could be a hit (Adult Contemporary)

The Blackout, could have mixed the drums higher in the studio mix (especially after getting the live version) but it's an excellent song. I think this album is showing REAL promise...

I love that performance. But for me RTSS is about the atmospherics. For such a stark, bleak song, nothing U2 can do live tops that Eno/Lanois production. The whole DEA agent/Hallelujah thing is very entertaining theatrics but it's a little too big for that song's content. I prefer the quiet poetry of the album version.

Seriously, WOWY with shine like stars? Come on man. Listen to the R&H version again or any of the great boots from that era. Or even the version from the Elevation tour.

And RTSS? You're killing me! Listen to any of the ZOOTV versions.

Axver could probably list some specific tours/dates where each of those songs hit the stratosphere live.
Shine like stars, as I've said before, is useless and the most ridiculous fan obsession. The lyrics are 7th grade level "summer night/winter light". It's nothing compared to how much "hear me coming" elevates One (and I do prefer various live versions of that). But even disregarding the unnecessarily coda, again it's the atmospherics. The production on WOWY is so intimate, creepy at first and then exalting. It sounds like nothing else from 1987. And I've yet to hear a live version that is better.

Plagiarizing Volcano is literally the funniest thing U2 has ever done.

I love Zoo TV Live from Sydney. It's my U2 bible. Upon viewing that dvd aged 18 back in 2009 it was the experience that made me see the light and go 'Wow - these guys are fucking incredible!'.

But WOWY is one of the songs from that performance I seek out the least. I don't know why. So so many people love that performance and yet I always felt that it was very much in the shadows of other great performances such as Streets, RTSS, Zoo Station, EBTTR, Dirty Day. Maybe it's the big build up ending that I'm not fussed about? Maybe it's because it follows Lemon (LEMON!!!) and precedes THAT finale of Love Is Blindness and Can't Help Falling In Love. Or maybe it's because every time I search anything to do with WOWY on youtube some moronic dickwad in the comments can't resist saying 'Ross and Rachel's song'. Either way - I probably vastly underrate it.

For what it's worth, my own preferred WOWY performance is the Glastonbury 2011 performance. Absolute belter and rewatching clips of that gig makes me think of it much better than when I first watched it live on the BBC.

So, better than most of Bono's lyrics as of late then?

I prefer that other mix of Blackout. It's less hollow sounding.

4. It's going to go viral on Youtube/Last.fm, etc.
5. It's their best single since (insert BD/Vertigo).
