What, in your opinion, was the best concert of the Prayer Tour?
Another Curefan for The Dark Christmas album.

Roma 4-6-1989, especially for the excellent version of Faith related to Tian An Men square facts.

1989-07-21 Birmingham
Any better second encore ever played by the band , I guess not

yes that one is awesome, hard to surpass it, then or now...  :shock: 

my other favorites: maybe an obvious choice but the 2nd & 3rd nights in wembley (also some nice combinations of encores there, like 'shake dog shake, siamese twins, one hundred years' as E2 on 24th...)
from among the more "ordinary" prayer tour shows, i also like the 2nd night of paris and frankfurt quite a lot....

(sorry, i suppose i picked more than  one... ;))

are there any soundboards at all from this tour?

e)9-23-89 Great Woods, MA is a really really good show and whoever taped it is a genius. and its one day away from by birthday and one state away from my town...

And the setlist cant be beat:

plainsong
pictures of you
closedown
kyoto song
a night like this
just like heaven
catch
last dance
fascination street
lovesong
cold
the walk
a forest
inbetween days
the same deep water as you
prayers for rain
disintegration    

Encore 1:
lullaby
close to me
let's go to bed
why can't i be you

Encore 2:
homesick
untitled
faith

Encore 3:
the figurehead
one hundred years
m
boys don't cry
10.15 saturday night
killing an arab
forever

Barcelona '89 is a really good one, but the recordings I've heard don't do it justice.

yes it does, if that's what matters.  ;)

so i'll wait for you where i always wait...

sicuramente roma e l'ultima data alla wembley arena sono i migliori concerti.

Wembley (last night)
I missed all the trains home, it went on so long!
No matter, it was worth the long walk back across London to Victoria station. :-D
Cheers
