In the spirit of the "positivism thread" - thought this is a thread we could do for each album/tour combination in U2 history. To start with: All that you can't leave behind and the Elevation tour. Only positive comments, and that includes nothing passive aggressive.

Go!

I'll kick off with this:

- In a little while: This is a great song with a simple but stunning opening riff, and great lyrics
- The Elevation tour - one of their best, with great reworkings of older songs like Out of control, the Fly, and a great closer with Walk On
- The Superbowl. No words needed

The TOUR was very good ! Last time U2 was at the top of their game, or close to it.

It's such a fun song. Surely not a classic, but oh-so-much fun!

Best set lists of their entire touring career, and the rockabilly-infused version of Discotheque was f-ing amazing. Also, I got to hear them do Stay, so my life is complete.

The Elevation Tour was the last great U2 tour.
What are we going to do now it's all been said.
No new ideas in the house and every book has been read.

U2 peaked with the Elevation tour.

In a little while sounds better everyday that passes.

Stuck in a moment sounds like a Bob Marley song played by U2.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

One of the very few shows I've been to.  The live performance of The Fly at my show was stupendous.

In A Little While is indeed a masterpiece. I feel a little sorry for anyone who disregards it.

I played that Boston DVD to death. Brought home the power and emotions of indoor U2.

In A Little While did sound tremendous on this tour. I wish the studio recording reflected the live version's power.

It sounds perfect.

I mean, none of the other things can blow the fucking roof off.
