Favorite concert moment? @ 05:31 pm

I'm currently feelin: nostalgic nostalgic
I'm currently hearin: Talking Heads- Sax and Violins

I was replying to someone else's post about an Elevation concert on 4/26/01. That particular show was my all time favorite because poor Edge was having a horrible night and Bono was picking on him...Just a hilarious night overall...

During Sunday Bloody Sunday:
"But I wont heed the battle call.....*Guitar goes out*
...I wont heed the battle call.......
Edge broke a string, it dont mean nothing at all!
Sunday Bloody Sunday......"

At that point Dallas had come out of his little cave to replace guitars.

During Angel of Harlem:
"Angeeeeeel of Haaaaarlemmmmm *Guitar string snaps*
Bono: He never breaks strings-The Edge.....thats 2 this evening!

At the beginning of All I want is you:
Bono: Edge? You ok?
Edge: *fiddles with tuning keys*
Bono: Two strings...out of tune *laughs* Wow...I sometimes forget that he's...you know...human and shit......Dr. Spock are you with us?
Edge: *Gives Bono the thumbs up*
They proceed with song...
I just love those little band moments...

well, I've only seen u2 live once and that was at the Brooklyn Bridge concert. well, right before they're about to do Sometimes... Bono started talking about his dad and how he thinks he got this strong voice back because of him and when he died. So, He's about to start singing and he says "alright Bob, you got the note back...don't f*ck it up now" and I just really really adored that sooo much.lol.!

on the Slane dvd... when Bono and edge are at the edge of the heart...right when a fan throws a beanie at the Edge and it lands but falls of his head. Bono says "his got a few of those man!!"

BUT! I love the transition of music from "BAD" to "Streets"... its so soothing and wonderful.

I loved the angel of harlem part of that show. I also loved Nov. 16 2001 Oakland. During UTEOTW instead of doing the bullfight bono grabbed a girl out of the crowd and ran around the heart with her (almost pulled her arm out the socket) while Edge was standing there at the tip of the heart like WTF?? At the end Bono fell onto his back and took the girl down with him. IT WAS AWESOME!!!!

Live From Sidney, Bono sees young Bono on the screen and they wave at each other.

"I remember you!"

There was a moment during the JT tour on 12/20/87 where we were singing Jingle Bells and Bono mocked the crowd, "Hey, listen, I just want you to know that we have a reputation to live down to, we're a very serious band. I mean, as spokespeople for a generation, we've had a very hard year carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders, you know? I mean it's hard work: setting people free, looking after the homeless, tackling world hunger, and organising a summit between world powers - this is hard work!" I LMAO and wasn't alone. Bono also said he wouldn't want it any other way.
