OTHER NOTES
Released to radio in May of 2001, the release of Elevation occured during the first leg of the Elevation tour, and also was used for promotion of the "Tomb Raider" film. The version of the single released was not the album version, but was the remix used on the soundtrack album.

Elevation was used to open almost every show on the "Elevation Tour" - U2 took the stage to a slightly different version of the "Influx Mix" prerecorded over the PA system. They would break into a live version partway through.
