Last time out they floored everyone when they brought back tracks like Electric Co and An Cat Dubh from Boy - and they sounded good as new. Did it get you thinking about other tracks from the back-catalogue you'd love to see in the set?

With less than a month to go until opening night, there's lots of chat online about set lists. So let's say you had the chance to put one song into the show. An overlooked classic from the eighties? An underrated gem from the nineties? Something from Boy, or something from 'Bomb'.

Name that tune.... and tell us why ?

It was really hard to narrow it down to Stay! The Unforgettable Fire or Gloria would be nice too.

I would absolutely love to hear "Like a Song" from War. It's got a great, emotional melody and I love that the chorus is a guitar riff instead of vocals... and it is a pretty slick riff. It's a great rock song.

MLK, A sort of homecoming, Heartland, WOWY with the 'shine like stars ending', Ultraviolet, Red Hill Mining Town, Gloria, Zooropa, HMTMKMKM, If God Will Send His Angels, New York, that version of Bullet from the Zoo TV days with the ridiculous solo

"Bad" would be awesome to hear this time around. My daughter loves that song, and she'll be seeing U2 live for the first time.

Exit. It is the energy of the song and its lyrics: some one looking for hands of love ... today we all need them!

Open with Unforgettable Fire would be ... unforgettable. (Followed seamlessly by Magnificent.) One Tree Hill, Acrobat, Heartland.

My old time favourite U@ song played live is "The unforgettable fire". There is, however, a song that I never heard live and which has an incredible sensuality...... please add "When you wear that velvet dress" to the list ..... Merci en avance...

My vote is for "Bad"..."Stay (Faraway, So Close)"...:Running to Stand Still"...and let's hear more of The Edge's voice "Van Dieman's Land" I definitely would love to hear more of the older stuff; I agree with whoever said we don't need "Pride", "New Year's Day", etc. again live.

I bet there is no U2 fan who wouldn't beg personally to play it live. Unforgettable fire is fantastic live,One tree hill, Wake up dead man.......on a new album Fez is mystical.....but live there is no better song than Bad

I love B-sides just as much as covers, so even if they used a part of one for an entry into another songwould beamazing. "Lady with the Spinning Head" comes to mind, so does "Big Girls are Best"

I would love to hear "Bad",. I remember falling in love with U2 when they played this for Live Aid back in the 80's. Would also love to hear more from the Joshua Tree, "In God's Country", "A trip through your wires". Definetely keep "Running to stand still".. "Out of Control" would be great too! :)
