I don't... IMO, that isn't a particularily good version of "Bad"...I've heard much better on various bootlegs.



Difinitive performances? Hmm...

I'd have to say Pride on R&H became the difinitive live version of that song...

Other random songs:
Beautiful Day- 12/2/01
Mysterious Ways- Without a doubt, the 8-26-93 version in Dublin
Sunday Bloody Sunday- UABRS

It´s clear why this forum is called "EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS WRONG"

Trust me most of the official live releases weren´t the best performances, except Zoo TV, UABRS CD and some numbers from Rattle & Hum movie

also "where the streets have no name" from Boston DVD is classic and amazing - especially that ending.

For me, it would be Love is Blindness and Ultraviolet from ZooTV Concert in Dublin August 1993.

Most intense performance of Ultraviolet ever, really brought out the best in the song.

The Fly from the Boston DVD would certainly have to be on there. Now I'm curious about that Dublin live version of Ultraviolet, lol.

NOTHING can compete with One Tree Hill, 26 December 1989. Best live performance of any song by any band ever. Anyone who likes music should have a copy of that performance.

It was awesome, yes, but it wasn't their best performance. My favorite one actually is the one from two days later...
