I voted for So Cruel and Horses, although if this tour were to actually happen, I'd pass on it just like I'm passing on the upcoming TJT tour.

Would love to hear So Cruel.  I am supposed to vote for Acrobat as it's never been played, but I adore Ultraviolet.

Yeah, it's pretty tough to beat Ultraviolet, isn't it?

I think I'm in the minority and incredibly lucky... I've pretty much heard live all the songs off of Achtung that I want to hear in concert.

I would be thrilled to see them do Ultraviolet.

The only 2 I've never heard them do are So Cruel and Acrobat.  Of the two I think I'd rather hear them do So Cruel.

Acrobat and Love Is Blindness

Acrobat is just dying to be played live and I'd love to hear Edge rip out that solo live. Bono could still pull this off today too.

LIB is a gorgeous live song and was an epic closer on Zoo TV. Again, if Edge could include his mesmerising Zoo TV solo then that would be awesome to witness live  ;)

Acrobat and Ultra Violet. I could see UV at every show from now until doomsday and never get tired of it.

Well, at least we know the band knows we want Acrobat. It'll happen one day.

Bono will be, what, 61 by the time Achtung turns 30 (!) - It would sure be interesting to see him do Ultra Violet and The Fly at that point

I voted for Zoo Station (and I would prefer it to be first on the setlist, complete with the grand entrance that U2 are so good at), and Love is Blindness.

If they do tour the whole album in 2021, I wonder if they'd release a newly recorded version of Acrobat with new vocals/lyrics by Bono just like they are doing with Red Hill Mining Town.

Has any other U2 song improved with age as much as The Fly?

From my point of view, "Ultraviolet" is one of the best songs of U2's career.  I've never gotten tired of it, and I doubt I ever will. It's epic, urgent and beautiful.

Yes, the desperation is so strong...such a wonderful emotion when used as it is in Ultraviolet.

Yes, many others have.
