Your fave part of the Boston DVD now is...

??? After 4 months, as it came out here only in last December, my fave performance is a song from Pop...THE song from Pop...which is

GONE

What a damn good performance! Amazing. Canīt have enough of it. If I could I would spend a few hours daily watching it several times in a row, LOL. But I canīt. Oh well, I can always listen to the last track of my Walk On australian single instead.

What about you? What is your fave performance from the DVD after 4, 5, maybe 6(?) months?

"To me a rock and roll concert is 3-D, itīs a physical thing - itīs rhythm for the body. Itīs a mental thing in that it should be intellectually challenging. But itīs also a spiritual thing, because itīs a community, itīs people agreeing on something, even if itīs only for an hour and a half." (Bono, as quoted in the book U2 The Road to Pop)

No question it's WOWY. Bono looks so sexy lying on that ramp in those closeups.

I wil follow. I've fallen in love with this song on the Elevation tour and the expression in his eyes and face on the "your eyes" and Paradise...a club called paradise is classic..I just love the energy of that performance.

I'd probably go with "Gone" complete with magic morphing guitar, and Edge's smashing finish.
Either that or "The Fly"

The Fly (love the Elevation version. "light and motion... light and motion...") or Bad into Streets (what directing! what a moment!)

------------------
I dig my toes into the sand. The ocean looks like a 1,000 diamonds strewn across a blue plain. I lean against the wind, pretend that I am weightless. And in this moment I am happy... happy.

Love,
Emily


I wish you were here.

The best part is when he sings until the end of the world. When bono is singing to some girls and they worship him like he's a god. Damn how I wish I was him at that moment.

It's amazing he still with Ali after so many years of temptation. Good for him!

LOVE those 3 seconds during "Desire" when Bono resorts back to his dancing moves of the 80's.

LOVE the ending of "Bullet", the change of lyrics, gives me chills everytime.

LOVE everyting you guys mentioned too!

**As an aside--> anyone else pissed they rolled the credits up over the end "Walk On"??? Admittedly I only watched the DVD in it's entirety a couple weeks ago and was shocked to see that.

Bad into Streets is an orgasmic sight to behold. That shot/moment was pure magic.

Yeah, the Bad/Streets transition is magical; the truly "religious" moment of the concert.

My favorite moment of the CD is Hamish going through the roof at the beginning of Streets.

Another favorite would be Hamish and the assistant director's reaction to the girl overcome with emotion during With or Without You. They're both like "OHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!"

As for the musical performances, Gone is fantastic. I am sooooo glad they played that song full band in Boston.

Agreed. Hamish did an incredible job of directing this film. And yes, I feel I can honestly call it a film.

You guys pointed out some fine moments, no doubt, all of them. But I still think that Gone in the DVD is perfect, I love everything in it, the heavy sound, the lights (you know, each one with a different colour), I love the way they throw themselves into that performance, I get breathless.

And you know what? It might sound weird, but as Iīm getting older I find myself more and more connected to their heaviest performances, like Gone and Bullet and The Fly, from the DVD, or Dirty Day and Until the End of the World from the Sydney video.

Even my old Led Zepellin vinyls have found their way out of darkness...and they have been played again. A lot.

conversation between me and my friend Craig at Boston 2 right after Gone:

Craig: what the fuck was THAT?!?
Me: Gone, it's from Pop, doesn't it kick
ass?
Craig: oh my God. That blew my mind.

A testament to the power of U2 lettin' it all hang out!

I have two favourite parts:
1. The intro to Streets - simply awesome.
2. Walk On - especially the "Hallelujah" part.
