There are many! Still Bad at Live Aid for me. Be interesting to see if any of the ‘worst moments’ from the other thread figure here!

Philís an easy target I suppose...but I have always thought him to be an excellent drummer and really innovative, and ĎIn The Air Tonightí is one of my favorite songs of all time and Face Value is a fantastic album.

Not that U2 totally disrespected him, as I am sure they were joking around...but Phil has taken a lot of abuse over the years...a lot of which he doesnít really deserve...and I tend to defend him.  So I didnít really think this was U2ís greatest moment...they werenít acting especially nice.

ZooTV tour Sydney Australia is U2 at their pinnacle IMO.

As much as I donít like ATYCLB, a case could me made for their Super Bowl appearance post 9/11.

POP and Pop Mart

The album, The singles, the concert in Leeds. For me U2 nailed it all in 1997.
