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.
"Actually '78 was a really exciting time for U2. We had just discovered F sharp minor. So we had the fourth chord and we'd only had three up to then."
did you know
The Picture of Dorian Grey mentioned in the song 'The Ocean' is a novel by Oscar Wilde, the Irish author who has been a huge influence on Bono's lyrics. In referring to it, Bono mocks his own vanity in thinking a rock star can change the world.
