Yes, well sorta, Bono sang the first verse of Bad in Barcelona, while Edge
played the guitar. This was added at the end of All I Want Is You. I
suppose the first performance of Bad at a POP Mart show would be the 2nd
Dublin show, Bono sang "I'm Wide Awake" a few times at the end of AIWIU.

The first full performance of Bad was at the first Sao Paulo Brazil show,
and they played it at most of the 98 shows.

The 98 versions were similiar to the Zoo TV performaces, a little longer,
but not as long as the Joshua Tree Tour. They added Ruby Tuesday in
Sydney, and I think Toyko. Walk On The Wild Side was added at the third
Buenos Aires show.
