E&I for me mainly because they played my 2 favourite songs from the album every night (Lights Of Home, love is bigger) and the strong Achtung baby presence + stay, if they hadn’t changed the Setlist to include the 90’s stuff I would probably have went with JT17 but I&E was great too.
By far the I&E tour. JT was ok. Mainly because of the impressive videowall and videos. Bono not at his best. E&I is for me one of their least interesting tours. Not because of the performance, but simply the songs of SOE are just average and a setlist we have heard enough times.
I thought the IE tour by a mile then maybe the JT tour. But all 3 were great tho I think I just got spoiled by the 2nights of the IE tour in Glasgow and as I didn't know the setlist before hand helped alot
Joshua Tree of course.... those first 4 songs and not losing that momentum for the whole show... I&E was also very U2 worthy... not entirely sure about E&I.. it was still very good, but probably the worst they ever did.
"Our idea was really to have the audience be on the stage there with you, we learned that in the mid 80s. We've been trying to figure a way to do it outdoors since. There's a bit of sleight of hand involved because by moving all the gear up away from you and over you, you're just left with a little punk rock band there in the middle."

did you know
The Edge received a production credit for Zooropa —his first on a U2 record —for the extra level of responsibility he assumed for the album.
