I picked these choices based on the 80s, 90s, and 2000s poll results that had 30+ votes and threw in Red Hill Mining Town for good measure.

Mofo, Gone, Exit.

Lemon just misses out, I love it but not sure bono could do it justice.

Kite, Gone, Exit, One Tree Hill

That's 4 and I can't change it! Guess I can't vote again! I'd say Lemon too, but am also concerned about how Bono could do it.

Don't play Acrobat. Play Stand Up Comedy instead.

How many members would have to vote in this poll for U2 to take it seriously?

What are the chances they would ever play all of the songs listed?

So Cruel, Lemon, Mofo. I feel that Electrical Storm could be strong live too.

Acrobat is not a "rare" song.  It was part of U2's 2nd best selling album of all time.  I'm sure it got pretty good exposure to be considered rare.

It's just a song they have refused to play live since its creation 15 years ago. No reason for them to suddenly play it.

Cheers,

J
