As in the most amount of other artists to join U2 on stage during U2's shows?

I'm actually not sure I'm the most qualified to answer this question. Let's play the game of "Add To The Following List Any Other Guests You Know"

Boy Tour:
October Tour:
War Tour: The Alarm
The Unforgettable Fire Tour:
The Joshua Tree Tour: Maria McKee, Bruce Springsteen
Lovetown: Depending on your perspective, BB King and his band
ZooTV: Bjorn and Benny from Abba
Popmart: Fun Lovin' Criminals
Elevation: Gwen Stefani
Vertigo: Eddie Vedder, Mary J. Blige, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Exit, Menew, The Bankrobbers

I'm really tired right now so I've probably missed some stuff.

You can add Jim Kerr to the War Tour (Werchter 3.7.83)

and I believe Chrissie Hynde joined the band on stage in Basel (J.Tree tour) but not sure if she sang or just bought out the champers

OK, the list as it stands now:

Boy Tour: Busta Jones (?)
October Tour: Mike Peters
War Tour: The Alarm, Jim Kerr
The Unforgettable Fire Tour: Red Rockers
The Joshua Tree Tour: Maria McKee, Bruce Springsteen, Chrissie Hynde (?), BB King, Lou Reed
Lovetown: Depending on your perspective, BB King and his band
ZooTV: Bjorn and Benny from Abba, Daniel Lanois, Axl Rose
Popmart: Fun Lovin' Criminals, Brian Eno, Monkees singer guy
Elevation: Gwen Stefani
Vertigo: Eddie Vedder, Mary J. Blige, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Exit, Menew, The Bankrobbers, Daniel Lanois, Brandon Flowers

Marty, did Lou Reed ever actually come on stage on ZooTV? I thought it was just the pre-recorded Satellite Of Love.

Edit: I'm certain someone (not the Red Rockers) joined U2 on stage during the UF Tour, I believe for Knockin' On Heaven's Door, but I'm having a total blank on who it might've been. Anyone know?

i believe dylan jumped on stage in LA... played knockin' on heaven's door. i have an mp3 of it somewhere... bono said something about how bob doesn't mind that he (bono) makes up his own words to bob dylan songs, to which dylan replied "i do it all the time."

daniel lanois also performed durring elevation.
