I'm pretty sure it was 1993. In Italy, right?

Your location's spot on. Van Diemen's Land, played 38 times, debuted 9 October 1989 in Melbourne, last played on 6 July 1993 in Rome.

I propose a whole Edge set. Stuff the acoustic set, let's give Edge the lead for a couple of songs.

Van Diemens Land was last played 1993-07-06: Stadio Flaminio, Rome - Italy @Zooroopa 1st leg Europe. (It has been played live 38 times)

Check out http://www.elevation-tour.com for this kind of info. You can also see things like the most played songs and so on: http://www.elevation-tour.com/most-played-songs.html

I Will Follow (647 times played) ...

(Sorry for looking it up, but I saw the right answer is already given)

I did love the version of Sunday Bloody Sunday from Popmart Mexico. Edge's voice is very under-rated! Don't think its strong or unique enough to sing more than a couple of songs a night..

I love that site. I have a significant chunk of it memorised, hence my setlist knowledge.

I really do need to get onto e-mailing them to correct a few errors. And they NEED to distinguish between U2's Gloria and Van Morrison's Gloria. Move Gloria down a couple of places on the Most Times Played list to get a more accurate reflection.

Though it may need some holes cut to accommodate the Phistohorns.
