I hadn't heard this before but I knew it was out there. IIRC, there was a period in late 2005 when they were heavily rehearsing and playing with a few songs that didn't make the cut, including 2 or 3 from Pop. This was around the point they briefly brought back "Discotheque". I could swear they rehearsed a third Pop song at the time too (Maybe Gone?) and there was apparently much speculation about a PopMart encore being brought in to rotate with the Vertigo Tour's Zoo TV encore.

This does sound great though. Could have been a monster live.

I haven't been able to find anything besides this Mofo soundcheck and Discotheque being rehearsed or played on Vertigo, but an article on u2gigs.com seems to indicate that Lemon and Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car were rehearsed: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

It could have been at the Toronto rehearsal from 2005. The played Discotheque and I remember someone saying that the rehearsed Mofo and the Wanderer.

from the link that Droo posted

"A fan in New York in October then reported that Bono responded to a query about Mofo with "it's coming, it's coming!", but as it failed to appear, skepticism mounted until a newspaper report confirmed that both Mofo and an unknown bluesy song were soundchecked in Atlanta on 19 November 2005."

and the YouTube video description itself was translated and reads "An unreleased recording of U2. Within the Vertigo Tour 2005 tour in the stretch of North America."
