In God's Country (2x 2001, 1x 2005)
Daydream Believer
Do You Feel Loved
Mother and Child Reunion (the only time they played the full song, with Mr. Paul Simon singing)
Peace on Earth (snippet)
I Remember You (full)
Your Blue Room

I would give up my firstborn child to see Troubles live...and she'd give me up to see it, too ;) I'm taking her to her first show in Dallas this tour. She's over the moon :)

Your Blue Room (360 Tour Chicago Night 2)
The Unforgettable Fire (360 Tour Chicago Night 2--not "rare" per say, but not played often live)
Ultraviolet (360 Tour Chicago Night 2--again, not extremely "rare" but not often played live)
Miss Sarajevo (360 Tour East Lansing--not rare but not played consistently live)
Zooropa (360 Tour East Lansing--hadn't been played live in 18 years when they whipped it out on the latter legs of 360)
Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me (360 Tour East Lansing--hadn't been played live since '98 when they started playing it fairly regularly on the 360 tour)
Stay (both Chicago and East Lansing--doesn't look like it's consistently in the setlist and hasn't been since the 360 tour--and before that, not since '01)
Scarlet (360 East Lansing--sadly I did not know this song at the time and did not appreciate the rareness of it)

I think that about covers it. Of those, I was particularly happy to hear Stay, Zooropa, Ultraviolet, TUF, and Miss Sarajevo. Considering I've only seen them twice live, I'm pretty happy to have heard some of my absolute favorite (yet not often played live) songs of theirs.

Id say the rarest songs I've heard U2 perform live in person are:

The Wanderer - 360 Nashville
Your Blue Room - 360 Chicago night 2

If someone had told you in 2008 that you would ever hear those two songs -- much less on the same tour -- would have believed them? The 360 setlits are SORELY underappreciated, IMO. New songs, obscure old songs, rarely played hits, album cuts. For a stadium tour, it really had it all.

Not including songs that appeared regularly on a specific tour, I've witnessed these treats;

'Babyface' 3 times on the Zooropa Tour as well as Zooropa twice. Both rarely played on that particular tour
WGRYWH 2005 (London 2) - First time since I heard it in '92 (London)
Mystery Girl '93 (Zooropa London)
I Will Follow '93 (Zooropa London)

Not super rare, especially since it's so new, but I saw Lucifer's Hands live in Chicago, which has apparently only been played 3 times. Hasn't turned me on to the song any more or less, but it was cool to hear that little bonus track live.
