along with the egregious grammatical mistake in the thread title, i'm happy to see it gone.

with the old intro it was awesome for 30 seconds, then it was there. the 2011 efforts were just a lot dull.

give me the fly or even better than the real thing anyday.

It never quite lived up to the beach clip from 2008 which is still the best version of the song.

It looks like the band is sick of Magnificent.

At least they had the sense to get rid of it after they ruined it.

No, you're right. Without the waves and talking and muffled music it's just not the same.

I liked it a lot in the 6 shows I saw in Australia. A crowd pleaser, I thought, since Bono would always throw in a few local references during the intro. Nothing wrong with that. Plus I thought it was a pretty good showcase of just good Bono's voice is thesedays.

it was good for the first half of the tour, im glad they are doing what they are doing now though.

Perhaps it will sound better in future tours?

If they had still been playing the first live version, I'd miss it. I won't miss the remix, even though I only heard it once.

Boots & Crazy remain but Magnificent & Unknown Caller are dropped.

Clearly nobody asked my advice.

Haven't heard that clip in AGES. So much nostalgia.

I dont hear a real difference between this and the album version??

One of my favorite tracks, depending on your mood its either uplifting and energetic or ambient and melancholy. When a song can completely shift based on your mood, then you know its great and U2 really knows how to make a song that can be heard both ways. Personally, I enjoy the melancholy aspect of magnificent, and the guitar riff is beautiful and haunting

Agreed with your description there. I'm hearing a different lyric towards the end of the first verse and some extended measures before the chorus, but a lot of it like the solo remains the same.

Love the song, but I wouldn't have looked forward to the remix version they were doing in particular on this leg. That being said, they can play the album version at Minneapolis if they want.
