Bono's haircut :drool:

But seriously...

The return of Electric Co. and Gloria among others. S'all I can think of right now, but it's a darn good one.
1. The new kickass version of The Fly
2. The best encore opener ever - Zoo Station. At its best it sounded even better than on ZooTV; the stadium visuals were very cool, especially Bono posing as The Fly and looking devilishy into the camera
3. The new and the best version of Discotheque ever
4. The Electric Co., which rocked the house
5. Running To Stand Still was beautiful, especially the Seattle II version (where Bono shows he can play the guitar a bit) and the Amsterdam ones (with the breathtaking Amazing Grace snippet)
6. Love and Peace or Else proved to be a fabulous live song
7. The three openers in the 1st leg; City of Blinding Lights is one of the best U2 openers
8. The WTF comebacks or premieres: An Cat Dubh/Into the Heart, The Ocean, Gloria, 40, Miss Sarajevo, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, The First Time
9. The longer shows
10.One Tree Hill!!!

Honorable mention: a vast improvement on the ATYCLB songs; especially Kite, Stuck in a Moment (the acoustic version is million miles better) and Walk On (both acoustic and electric with a new solo). Elevation was tolerable.
3. Finally returning to New Zealand
4. An Cat Dubh/Into The Heart
5. Bono's singing during Miss Sarajevo
6. Bono's Love And Peace Or Else drumming
7. Incredibly rocking version of The Fly
8. The First Time
9. Gloria
10. Stories For Boys snippet in Vertigo
The confetti baptism of the City of Blinding Lights opening

Bad with People Got the Power

Sharing the set of the shows we weren't able to attend at Interference Set Parties where we'd hear some digital feedback that were at times mistaken for actual U2 songs. With improvements of technology, next tour we should have live video each night.

Hearing Wake Up before each show and instantly going into :hyper: mode.

The surprise of opening with LAPOE in Anaheim 1:drool:
