I've already seen the show 5 times and currently  not going to anymore shows so for me it doesn't matter but voted yes because I would have loved to have heard it.  I wish they had played this one in Toronto.  It would have been a better choice than Your Blue Room.

I think it would be a great set list addition.  I saw a band quote somewhere that they were worried that it would kill the mood of the set.  I don't think it would except for being the lone obscure track in the set list.

I am of the opinion that I would like to hear a good set overall, including most of what I have already heard before, the NLOTH stuff, and hopefully 1 obscure track.  Either YBR or Drowning man would be good. I am sort of hoping for Electrical Storm, or Walk to the Water - that would be amazing

It was such a teaser to have it actually on u2.com!!! If they're gonna play a snoozer like your blue room (dont get me wrong, good song, but does it belong in a stadium?, it's a lounge chill out song), why can't Drowning Man be there, here how's this:

Elevation
I still havent found what im looking for
Drowning man
unknown caller

I think it'd fit fine, plus it goes on pace with those songs sandwiching it.

Kick out Pride and SBS (yawn) and play DM and ES - now that would be amazing...
