Red Hill Mining Town, since it has never been played live.

 

And I want them to play the strange, sweaty music video on the big screen behind them while they perform it. Or, at the very least, wear era-appropriate clothes and wigs.

Oh, and I want the show closer to be One, then The Mothers Of The Disappeared.

 

Like they did for Popmart in Chile:

Pixel suit and Las Madres optional.

I could be wrong, but i think i have a bootleg tape buried in the basement somewhere from a 19887 or 1988 show in Chicago with Red Hill Mining Town on it.  If am remembering correctly, Bono stops the song and tells everybody to shut up for a second.  He says something like "this isn't the Beatles, its U2."  People were screaming and whooping it up.  Maybe that's why they stopped playing it.

From Joshua Tree, Trip through Your Wires and One Tree Hill.  

From other albums...  I've been waiting for the return of Last Night on Earth since PopMart.  The version from the Mexico City show is just amazing, and i thought it would have projected very well in the arena shows on the 360 tour.  Thematically, I think it fits the times.  

Oh, and Hawkmoon and God Part II.

I think that's Springhill Mining Disaster you're thinking of.
