A sort of homecoming v Bad

It appears that it is one or the other - which would you rather hear?

Bad should be the new Streets. Plug that one in instead and you're bound to get a much more energetic performance.

I'd LOVE it if they did both, but if picking is a necessity, then Bad is the best choice imo.

ASOH and Bad back to back in Seattle was magical. Without doubt the best night of the tour set list wise.

This 100%. Left after the concert thinking that was a great show. Especially with IWF as the closing song.

The 3 other concerts I left with a slight tinge of was that it, when ATLTYGA was closing.

ASOH but purely because it so rarely gets played - I've heard U2 play Bad at virtually every show of theirs I've gone to.  Bad is the better song but it'd be great to hear ASOH again.  That said I loved the version of Bad I heard last month, so it's never a disappointment to get that song at a U2 show.

I chose ASOH, merely because I've never seen it live. Well, plus it is a beautiful song!

Bad has something incredible about it and an aura about it when played live. ASOH has something magical about it, given the fact it's been played rarely live it's even more special

I probably prefer Bad overall as a song, but I'd much rather hear ASOH at this point, having heard Bad several times in the past 25 years but never hearing ASOH.

Tough to choose as they are both brilliant songs. ASOH would've been great to hear because I've yet to hear it live. This tour was also only the 2nd time I've heard Bad though and I have no complaints with any tour where Bad is as much of a regular as it has been this time out.

I love Bad and have been lucky enough to have seen it performed so many times, so I would pick A Sort of Homecoming.I was sure that U2 would play it in Dublin but they didn't---and I'm still bummed  :(  I love that song.

You know, I voted for ASOH...but I am SHOCKED that it's doing so well in this poll.

ASOH is a good tune don't get me wrong but up against bad ? Really ? Bad is in a different league to ASOH. Bad wins 365 days a year for me

Yeah, but I don't think this thread is really about which song is "better"...it's about which song we'd like to see/hear them play...and ASOH is kind of a rarity...

I've seen ASOH twice (Slane 1 and Paris 2 JT30) and both times it was a disappointment. Bad - on the other hand - is always a gig highlight. The JT30 version is up there with the best too. No contest for me.
