Rattle and Hum:

The Playboy Mansion was played at least once during the earlier stages of PopMart. I read about it a while ago

wertsie 06-20-2002 08:24 PM

Wow, Blue Room! I'm impressed that you remember/know all that. Thanks!

Nope, Bono only sang a snippet at the end of Streets on the first leg. They did rehearse the full band version but it was never played

During the Zooropa tour Bono sang a snippet of the song at the end of Bad, but never the full version.

Wow, I think I had everything right off except "Is That All?"
Although technically instrumentally it has been played many times (The Cry ;) )

As far as B sides it would probebly be easier to list the ones they have played rather than the ones they have not.

tackleberry 06-21-2002 10:39 AM

These are the B-sides that I know for sure they played:

A Celebration
Boy/Girl
She's a mystery to me
Sattelite of Love
Spanish eyes
Sweetest Thing
Touch
Treasure (Pete Chop)
Holy Joe
Slow Dancing
Unchained Melody
Two Shots of Happy (snippet)

NOT SURE IF THESE ARE REALLY B-Sides:
Party Girl
Miss Sarajevo


Could be more??

So Cruel was only played as a snippet.

wertsie 06-21-2002 02:07 PM

Man, they should play "Is That All?" I'd LOVE to hear that live!

Actually at the 9-9-92 Detroit show Bono sang the entire song playing his guitar acoustically. So IMO that counts.

He also did the entire first verse and chorus at the 8-22-92 Foxboro show and the 9-15-92 Chicago show. So that is more than a snippet as well IMO.

Eek! Really? Ah, so the U2 Encyclopedia is wrong. As far as I can remember, the book mentioned that So Cruel is the only track off AB that's never been played live. :(

Oh, what I'd do to hear it live with the strings and all.:love:

Wow, I havent read this book but it is completely wrong. First off with So Cruel and secondly, Acrobat has never been played live in concert. Acrobat was rehearsed only.

They may not have known about the Detroit performance all the way through as a bootleg of the entire show has never surfaced. I was there, and I can confirm he sang So Cruel all the way through.

SkeeK 06-21-2002 05:01 PM

Wow.. the entire song, and it's not on bootleg? well well well.
