Street Missions live... ever happen?

What are the chances of them ever playing this live again? It is their roots after all... much moreso than I Will Follow. That second half is amazing (with the solo and "I need someone" bit)

Ever happen again?

(Keep in mind I am already expected responses such as "hell no loser!" and "not in a million years..... shithead")

It's ludicrous to suggest this will ever be played again. It seems to have already been discarded by the band before the Boy album. If I remember correctly, it doesn't appear on the Pre-Boy shows of 1979-10-05, 1980-02-03, and 1980-02-26. I think even then they wrote it off as a song they no longer wanted to play.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I bet Edge doesn't even remember the chords and I would love to see Bono trying to remember the words!

Ever seen the video? It's hilarious.

How about "Life on a Distant Planet"?

Another classic.
