I'd like to add a few more for consideration:

The Fly, Boston 5/26/05

Until the End of The World, Slane Castle

40, Red Rocks 1983

Ultraviolet Dublin 1993

and:
Sunday Bloody Sunday from Rattle and Hum, Denver CO
The transition from just B+E to full band followed by Edge's solo, followed by Bono's speech is, for me, among the most emotional performances of any song I have ever seen.

I'm going to limit myself to one performance of each song, otherwise this may just be ten different One Tree Hills.

1. One Tree Hill (1989-12-26, Dublin)
...
...
[This signifies a huge gap]
...
...
2. 11 O'clock Tick Tock (1983-06-05, Red Rocks)
3. Where The Streets Have No Name (1989-12-26, Dublin)
4. The Electric Co. (2005-09-20, Chicago)
5. Bad (1987-11-08, Denver)
6. Exit (1987-11-18, Los Angeles)
7. Please (1997-09-23, Sarajevo)
8. God Part II (1989-11-23, Yokohama)
9. Sunday Bloody Sunday (1987-11-08, Denver)
10. The Fly (2005-09-20, Chicago)

Beyond about #5, I did that without much thought and it's liable to change. The top three in particular, however, are set in stone.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."
