Nope. He used to do it very frequently 1987-1993, but it has been quite rare since then. It has only been added to WOWY once this tour, on 2005-10-11 in NYC.

Here's its record of appearing live: http://www.u2-vertigo-tour.com/song88.html

We need that verse done live more often! It really caps off the song. Though I am thoroughly delighted that Shine Like Stars' long-term partner in WOWY snippetry, Love Will Tear Us Apart, has been thrown into a couple of recent performances. That snippet is amazing.

I know it was in the Rattle & Hum movie...not sure about any CDs. I'm inclined to say no, but I could be wrong.

Not the Please EP. It's on both the Rattle And Hum and Slane DVDs.

At Sydney III Bono gave Edge on of those looks/signals and the Edge went up a notch and Bono moved quickly back to the mic like he was about to belt something out - I thought "Holy shit" for a split second there, but alas, we just went to another round of the Whoa-oh-oh-oh's. Prick tease.
