I could very easily say "Shadows and Tall Trees" or something like that, but lets make it interesting.
"3 u2 songs you never want to hear live again"
The again implies that I've heard them live before, so I'll take out 3 songs from the only U2 concert I've been to.

   1. Breathe
   2. No Line On The Horizon
   3. Get On Your Boots
   4. Magnificent
   5. Beautiful Day
   6. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
   7. Elevation
   8. Your Blue Room
   9. Unknown Caller
  10. Until The End Of The World
  11. Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
  12. The Unforgettable Fire
  13. City Of Blinding Lights
  14. Vertigo
  15. Crazy Tonight (Remix)
  16. Sunday Bloody Sunday
  17. MLK / Walk On

  18. One
  19. Where The Streets Have No Name
  20. Ultra Violet (Light My Way)
  21. With Or Without You
  22. Moment of Surrender

That was fun and interesting. those three are ones I foresee not coming back on later tours anyway. But that entire show I was in a haze of pure bliss at finally being at a U2 concert, so I adored every song.I also think that U2 on any tour should play as many new songs as possible, because they have the rest of their lives for greatest hits tours. But, and the end of the day (night), those three were the least best.


dunno about no line and breathe not making any future tours. i love unknown caller, but i think this will be it's last outing due to the song's nature. the other 2 songs are rockers up with u2's best, so i wouldn't count them out just yet.

wow. very surprised by some of the answers I  am reading here.  Some have said STREETS, BEAUTIFUL DAY, BAD?????? REALLY????  Some of the best moments from any show!!! (post ATYCLB of course).  STUCK is one of my favorite songs..but I can understand why many people don't dig this song live.  Can say that about  IN A LITTLE WHILE as well (even though it's one of my favorite "sleeper" U2 tunes) again, can understand why people don't want to hear this song live too (even though I was in my glory to hear both live this tour).
But, c'mon people..BAD??? STREETS??  Classic, classic , classic tunes especially STREETS.  Wouldnt be a U2 show without STREETS..it is THE song that has everyone out of their seats.  BAD..if you are lucky enough to hear live does the same thing. Have to respectfully disagree with those two songs.

Pride, Sunday Bloody Sunday & Bullet The Blue : once, songs aflame with passion - now, tired, lame workhorses performed by muscle memory and not with any vigour as an idea. These songs have had their day. Let them rest.

Also.. I don't like being told what to think ; I know war, racism, and terrorism are bad - it's why I'm an evolved mofo and not a retard.

It's hard to think of songs you don't want to hear live, but I would probably say:

1) Get On Your Boots: It's not that I don't like the song; it's kind of a guilty pleasure for me, it just isn't that great live.
2) No Line on the Horizon: Same reason, it's not that great live.
3) Your Blue Room: I love this song and it was great to see it played live again and it would be cool to hear it live again, but I wouldn't mind if they didn't play it.

Another choice would be Mofo (not that they play it anyways :D)
