Pls U2 add 'The Wanderer' to 360 set list

Wouldn't it be great if U2 performed the Wanderer more often. I love the JC version but the Bono version is great as well. I know 'Blue room' is being added for the US leg so why not the Wanderer as well (They would add a bit of depth/darkness to the 360 shows).

I really think the Original album version is the best, I really do not like Edge's "WA-WA-WANDERER!" addition - it actually kind of ruins the song for me...

I'd like to hear a lot of other songs more than The Wanderer.

Something like this. Please U2, do NOT play this live.

I was genuinely surprised they never played it at a third leg Vertigo show, given how much time they spent rehearsing it and how easy it would've been to slot into the encore.

And I personally like Edge's backing vocals. Never understood why they seem to be near-universally hated on this forum.

the reason for me is the the backing vocals sound like a song from the 50s or 60s called runaway

I didn't know that it was disliked. I was surprised by how good it sounded, and yeah, I also expected it to show up in the Vertigo set.... It would have only gotten better with a few more performances...

I seriously doubt it would ever show up again now though.

I'm pretty sure that was the point.
