This is a clip of Scarlet from Auckland, Nov. 24-


U2 are currently camped out at Mt. Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand, rehearsing for their upcoming ten-date tour of Australia and New Zealand, which features special guest Jay-Z. According to fan site u2gigs.com, the band has rehearsed much of their standard set list in addition to the 1981 rarity “Scarlet,” The Joshua Tree deep cut “One Tree Hill” and “Boy Falls From The Sky,” from Bono and The Edge’s soundtrack to the Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark.

The heavily gospel-influenced “Scarlet” has only been played live once before, at a September 1981 BBC taping.
