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.

Brian Eno, who has worked with U2 a lot, does also work for Microsoft. He composed the welcome sound during the introduction for Windows XP as well as the original startup sound for Windows 95.
