Cut songs from Boston...??

So...having only obtained my own copy of the Boston DVD this week...I'm doing lots of "research" about it...to satisfy my curious needs. I'm sure it's all stuff you peoples did ages ago.

Anyway...I came across www.u2tours.com which has a set list from (almost) every U2 gig ever. I'm curious as to why there have been songs cut from the Boston DVD.

I know the DVD is a mixture of 3 shows (June 5th, 6th, and 9th...right?) but it's mostly of the 6th...which had this set list:

Elevation, Beautiful Day, Until the End of the World, Mysterious Ways / Sexual Healing, In My Life / Stuck In a Moment, Kite, Gone, New York, I Will Follow, Sunday Bloody Sunday / Get Up Stand Up, In A Little While, Desire / Gloria, People Get Ready, Bad, Where the Streets Have No Name, Pride, Bullet the Blue Sky, With or Without You, The Fly, One / Wake Up Dead Man, Walk On.

And the DVD list is: Elevation, Beautiful Day, Until the End of the World, Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of, Kite, Gone, New York, I Will Follow, Sunday Bloody Sunday, In a Little While, Desire, Stay (June 5th), Bad, Where the Streets Have No Name, Bullet the Blue Sky, With or Without You, The Fly, Wake Up Dead Man, Walk On.

So, my question is, does anyone know why "Pride", "Mysterious Ways / Sexual Healing" and "One" (which were performed at all Boston shows) were cut from the DVD? Surely it wasn't a space thing...not on DVD...??? I feel like I'm missing out...unless there's a good reason. Or maybe we'll never know.
