Pearl Jam did it.

If U2 were to do the same, I'd hope whichever one of you is making the set list, you'd make sure to have these never been played songs on there!

Awesome idea.  U2 should take note.  However, I'll add that it's only impressive if the band commits to actually learning to play the tunes.  With PJ, it might be a different story--I don't know if they use any pre-recorded stuff, whereas U2 relies on plenty of them, so it might be harder to pull off without extensive preparation.  But hacking through Acrobat on just an acoustic guitar would be a letdown if they ever agreed to do something like this.

Also, if Bono couldn't sing RHMT in 1987, I'm not sure there's any point in having him try it now.  His voice is probably the biggest argument against this.....I was thrilled with the idea of them playing UF, but the actual execution left a lot to be desired.

Makes me tempted to finally write up a fantasy setlist.  But as for rare stuff, I might like to include:

ASOH (it's rare if they haven't done it in 25 years!)
Wire
Love Comes Tumbling
Lady With a Spinning Head
Mofo
Miami
Please
In God's Country
Exit
Fire

Man, this will be hard.....
