Tonight we dance to U2!
Dave “the Edge” Evans (8 August 1961) is a guitarist, keyboardist, vocalist, and founding member of the Irish rock band U2. Since yesterday was his birthday, and U2 have given us some songs with MAJOR attitude, I figured it would be a good gig!
This one’s fun, so watch it all the way! From the 1988 “Rattle and Hum” DVD, here’s U2 live with a gospel choir from 124th St. in Harlem taking us to church with our Saturday Night Attitude tune, “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”
Here’s a great music video of our Saturday Night Attitude tune, complete with the lyrics! “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”
From 1983 in Red Rocks, “October” and “New Years Day”
Here’s an entire one hour show in Devore from May 1983! U2 Live in Devore 1983
From 1984, a 48 minute show in Dortmund! U2 Live in Dortmund 1984
From 1987, the original music video for “With or Without You”
In Stockholm on the ZooTV tour in 1992, a 2 hour 5 minute concert! U2 Live in Stockholm 1992
We now go to the original 2000 music video for “Beautiful Day”
From the Elevation tour in Boston 2001, 4 great ones!
From 2001, live at Slane Castle in Ireland, a stack of 7 great tunes!
“All I Want is You,” “Where the Streets Have No Name,” “Mysterious Ways,” and “(Pride) In the Name of Love” From that same show, we move into “New Years’ Day” and “Sunday Bloody Sunday,” and close with "It's A Beautiful Day"
Live in Chicago on the Vertigo tour in 2005, “One” (let it buffer a little)
At the Rose Bowl in 2011 on the 360 tour, “With or Without You” From the same Rose Bowl show, “Amazing Grace” and “Where the Streets Have No Name”
From that same 360 tour, this time in Toronto, a full 2 hour 18 minute live show! U2 Live in Toronto 2011
We’ll close the dance with a triple offering, live in Milan in 2005! The first is a beautiful performance of our Saturday Night Attitude tune, followed by two more great ones! “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” “All I Want Is You,” and “City of Blinding Lights”
As usual, our encore is another great offering of our Saturday Night Attitude tune! From 2009 at Madison Square Garden, here’s U2 with Bruce Springsteen offering up “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”
