Ten of the Best from 2009

31 Dec 200936
We've been through our 2009 archives and come up with ten of the best from U2.com over the past year. From Edge and Eno in the studio to the YouTube broadcast of the LA show to 10million viewers... it's been quite a year.

Live clips from club shows, remixed singles, rare tracks making their debut on the road... and... some space chat. Take a look below, tell us what you think... and tell us what we missed. Here's what we came up with:

Brian Eno and The Edge with a song that was not on the album.

Bono's Manhattan Diary on the day the album was released.

Boots Gets Justice and what a great remix this turned out to be.

Magnificent in Boston ...what else is there to say ?

Guessing the Opening Night Set List in Barcelona ahead of the first night of U2 360° .

Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol on a special night in Poland

With or Without You in Glasgow . (Everybody joined in...)

The Return of Your Blue Room, at Soldier Field, Chicago.

Bono and Edge Calling Space from Ground Control

Unknown Caller from the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles (Maybe you were part of the global chorus...)

We joined, together with our daughters (11 and 14 years old) a MAGNIFICENT concert in Paris! 4 Dutchies in a crowd of almost 85.000 french people!!! It was one of the most greatest concerts of U2 we ever saw, it was one of our highlights in 2009! And our favourite song is still MAGNIFICENT! Thanks for that!!! Annemarieke

U2 at Fordham
Wow - U2 on the Rose Hill campus. Absolutely awesome. Wish I was there at my Alma mater but had to make do with YouTube from Seattle.
The Concert of my life
I was at Giants Stadium the they the band broke an attendance record...it was a dream come true for me, being able to attend the concert with my wife and one of our best friends. We traveled from South America to be part of this special day and fulfill a life long dream. Thanks U2 for a beatiful day in the city of blinding lights. I´ll never forget that experience.
The concert at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. Was so special, amazing.

Best 2009: New Jersey Giants Stadium "She's The One/Desire" Heppy New Year
Brits 2009
::: 'Get On Your Boots' performance on the Brit Awards is missing in the list. Have a great 2010
Unknown Caller from the Rose Bowl - you got that right - the whole show was a spectacular, worldwide event. Hats off to everyone involved - you pulled it off so seamlessly. I know I listened to/watched the show again on YouTube multiple times. (It was such a treat - as I'd just seen them in Vegas.) Looking forward to the DVD and seeing the show again in Denver in 2010 - rain, snow or shine!
Yay , global chorus :)
Showing my singing ''skills'' paid of, I was part of the global chorus :)
The world in white and red - Aug. 6, 200
Being Polish I just cannot help remembering what a great experience it was to be a part of the white and red flag covering all of the stadium on August 6, 2009. It would be just as wonderful to see U2 come to Poland once more in 2010.
Giant numbers
Breaking the public record at Giants Stadium - and i was there!
'Stay' in Berlin
Stay performed in Berlin, at Olympia Stadion. When Bono introduced it in these way: 'Edge, you wrote a lot of good songs, but there was one, that we created in Berlin... for a famous film...'
Everything U2 shares is beyond very cool...soooo I'm blending two parts U2 Houston with one part Twitter Fun add a splash of the Claw fast Frame Video garnish with a twist of Father Christmas...Straight Up... Thanks U2 Happy New Year : ).
10 best of /09
These are definetly some of the best highlights of the year...and yes, what a year!!!!! Being a Torontonian and slightly biased, though, I'd say don't forget the clip of the first T.O. concert from the CN Tower Skypod-- that was pretty spectacular!!!! Thank you U2 for brightening up my year into an incredible 2009!!!!!!
A good 2010
For everyone a good 2010, U2, the crew, the fans and in particular: Aung San Suu Kyi .... we think of her
