Saw them play I Fall Down on UF tour think it was the only time they played it on that tour

Wow. That's a good one! Congrats!

U2 played "I Fall Down" 12 times on TUF tour, mostly on the early Australian shows, but only twice on the 2nd North American leg:

Just considering full versions (no snippets) and the number of times the song played being 50 or under....I've heard these:

Lucifer's Hands 1 out 3
Your Blue Room 1 out of 8
Instant Karma 1 out of 8
Volcano 1 out of 11
Wild Honey 1 out of 11
Fast Cars 1 out of 16
The First Time 1 out of 29
The Ground Beneath Her Feet 1 out of 32
Unknown Caller 1 out of 36
Van Diemen's Land 1 out of 38
Scarlet 1 out of 47
Sweetest Thing 1 out of 50

According to my tours.atu2.com profile, I've heard 96 different U2 songs in full in concert.  Out of about 144 songs on all their studio albums, that's not bad.  I'm sure there has to be someone on the board that got a lot closer.  My first U2 concert wasn't until 1987.

At the Melbourne 360 show we got a couple of treats, I know they're probably not considered rarities but they played:

Stingray and Mercy - I guess they might be never heard again?

Miss Sarajevo, Bad and Scarlet - I don't think many people who were there realised how lucky they were to get to see the band perform Bad, which is not played much these days.
