Just give me:

Mofo

I'm not sure my rarities list would translate well live, so just going with rarities I think would translate well live. I'm not sure 150 times live counts as rare BTW :-) - especially because songs that were regularly played on UF, Zoo TV or Vertigo would be close to 150 times because of the length of the tour, whereas anything on LoveTown/Rattle and Hum or POP/Popmart, would not, so MOFO would count as rare and The Fly would not. Anyway,  Ive always wanted to hear them take the stage to the extended dance mix of Lady with the spinning head, so I put that first .

1. Lady with the spinning head
2. Are you gonna wait forever
3. Acrobat
4. Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me
5. Wild Irish Rose
6. Like a song
7. So Cruel
8. In the name of the father
9. MOFO - not sure it counts as a rarity but it was played <150 times :-)
10. Holy Joe
11. Wake up dead man
12. Spanish Eyes
13. Xanax and Wine
14. Fez - being Born
15. Sinistereo - Hey, listen to it before you judge
16. Disapearing Act
17. Luminous Times
18. 11 O clock, tick tock
19. Slug
20. Wild Honey

Encore
21. Soon
22. Sleep like a baby tonight - alternate tchad blake mix
23. Native Son
24. Hawkmoon 269
