to the posters who saw Babyface, this was Zoo TV Wembley, right? I know they played that and Zooropa, what?, twice? on the Zoomerang portions of the Zoo TV tours?

I saw one of the only two performances of Electrical Storm in Milan, 2009.
Personally, I love the song, but it wasn't impressive, so no surprises that they dropped it shortly afterwards.
The guitar part during the chorus was quite bad.

Crumbs  From Your Table and Fast Cars.  Both were excellent.

Lucille (has been played 12x)
Lost Highway (Hank Williams Cover, has been played 8x)
Helter Skelter (Beatles cover, they have only performed it 17x)
The Ground Beneath Her Feet (actually has been played 33x, I would have guessed fewer)
Your Blue Room (has only been played 7x)

Zoo TV '93
Babyface Wembley 1,2 + 3  Zooropa 1 + 2 Wembley. An extended version of She's a Mystery To Me at Wembley 2 are probably the rarest ones that I've heard.

I saw them on the Popmart tour in Leeds ... Was loaded with songs they hardly play ... Miami, Mofo, Velvet Dress, Please, Rain by the Beatles, Hold me thrill me, The Edge even did Singing in the Rain on the Kareoke ... The only thing missing was Periscope or Mixlr so people could moan about the stagnant setlist or how tired Bono sounds ... That's got to have been a highlight of this tour

Oh I saw them do Miss Sarajevo in Rome in 2005 that was pretty cool

So true. Completely messes up the melody.

I was there for the piano-only intro of New Year's Day for Vertigo in Brussels. Not a bad idea but it needed a little pace. It was executed too fast and Bono was still speaking.

I think Bono sang half a verse of "Two Shots of Happy" in Antwerp 2001 too.

Redemption Song in Marseille for the Zooropa Tour but that's a cover.

Wild Honey  in Paris in 2001.

Offhand, I think the ones I've heard only once are the following (out of seven shows).

The Ocean, The First Time, WGRYWH, 40, Miracle Drug, LAPOE, and SYCMIOYO on Vertigo.
Stay, Stand by Me, Out of Control, One Tree Hill, Bad, The Unforgettable Fire, MLK, Ultraviolet, Breathe, NLOTH, Unknown Caller, and Magnificent on 360.
Ordinary Love, The Crystal Ballroom and The Sweetest Thing on this tour.

So... maybe One Tree Hill? Or maybe one of the songs from the Vertigo show.

Saw Your Blue Room at Chicago 2009, the first performance ever. Then this past year at Chicago 3, I saw Lucifer's Hands, second of only three performances. It's not quite as rare, but I also saw One Tree Hill at Chicago 2011. Chicago is a great place to watch a U2 show  ;D
