When I Look At The World

I hope they start playing that song during the tour. It would be amazing!

Hopefully Axver or someone can shed more light on this.

I believe it's only been played live in Kansas City during the Elevation Tour.
It's just a beautiful, underrated song. Get the bootleg.

I'd love to hear it live on 360, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

I think it did make a sort of debut, but might have been only a snippet during Bad, but not sure??

If I remember right, I believe Edge has said he forgot how to play it.

But it only replaced the then standard "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses" as a linked snippet to "Bad". This only happened in Kansas City; a full band live version never was performed ...

I love this song. Would be great if they played it full band.

Yup, these are what I heard as well.

I read in Wikipedia a while back, it's mentioned in "U2 by U2" that When I Look at the World was one of the songs that was recorded in a short time during the making of ATYCLB, and The Edge forgot how to play it.

I got a bootleg of Kansas City show and Bono started singing the song as a snippet during Bad, and even as a snippet it was awesome. Edge tried to come up with something else, and I thought it sounded great.

I could care less if the version they can come up with is different than the album's, I'm sure it will still be good...

We should all start a movement and bring signs to the shows with 'When I Look at the World' written on it kind of like people have done for Kite and 11 O'Clock Tick Tock in the past...I am sure there were some others as well.

Has U2 ever played a song that they didn't play on the album's original tour?

I know Axver will know.

Sorry, but we'll never see this gem live...

Wasn't The First Time snippeted during Bad on ZooTV?

Unchained Melody was a b-side to AIWIY, but they didn't start snippeting it until ZooTV.

When was 'The First Time' ever played in full?

Passengers never really had a tour so that doesn't count.

The Wanderer is a good example but special occasion.

I'm talking about actual album songs being played on later tours.

Yes it was snippeted.

UM is a b-side cover so I wouldn't count that either...

They played the full version of The First Time during Vertigo Tour...

I know it was an intro to Bad, but don't sell it short as a snippet. It was easily half of the song.

People, if you don't have this boot, you must get it or request the song on the "Music On The Internet" Page.

Correct, the only live appearance WILATW has made was that snippet during Bad in Kansas City. Yeah, it was pretty lengthy, but it was still just a snippet, entirely dependent on Bad's performance.

I'd love to see it live since it's a good song and my favourite from the standard edition of ATYCLB ... if they have to play anything from the album, it's what I'd like to hear. But I expect that Kansas City snippet will remain its solitary live outing.

The First Time debuted live in full on 20 September 2005 in Chicago. Previously, it had only appeared a few times as a brief snippet in some August 1993 performances of Bad. It was played 28 times over the course of the third, fourth, and fifth legs of Vertigo (I got it at the second Melbourne show).

And as mentioned by Pop Artist, there was also that performance of The Wanderer on TV ... I was genuinely surprised the band never threw it into a Vertigo encore, given they had it all rehearsed and everything.

Miss Sarajevo actually was played on the first tour it could have been performed. They first played it on 12 September 1995 at the Pavarotti and Friends gig. Then it was done in Sarajevo on Popmart, 23 September 1997. Vertigo was just the first time it became a regular.
