2001-05-15 - Chicago, Illinois - United Center


Performance notes: Out Of Control is performed for the first time in over eleven years. 11 O'clock Tick Tock makes its Elevation Tour debut after appearing at a couple of small pre-tour promotional gigs (even though Bono claimed that they hadn't played it in 20 years), and gets off to a false start when Edge has guitar problems and has to get a new guitar from his technician before the song can proceed. Interestingly, the last time these two songs were played at a full tour concert (10 January 1990, Rotterdam), they were also played consecutively.

A lot of screw ups here from both Edge and Bono. Slightly higher than average I'd say. I don't know what they were thinking playing Mysterious Ways immediately after Streets. It doesn't work and it takes a while for the crowd to come out of their confusion and really get into the song, which is always a crowd pleaser from the first note otherwise. Still a pretty good show though. Really like seeing 11 O'Clock and OOC.
