Even as a kid, that was always the one U2 song I luvvvvved. Deep, booming, and intense. I think my favorite moment is when Bono snarls, "one hundred, two hundred..."

I really wish I'd had the chance to see U2 on the Zoo TV tour.

Me too, man. That and Pop Mart were both mind blowing.

I saw them on the Vertigo tour, but that had nothing on Zoo TV or Pop Mart

I saw that too. Actually, I think I’ve seen every tour since Pop Mart. But I don’t think any of them come close to comparing to ZooTV and Pop Mart.

I was at Pop Mart and it was fucking insane. Screen the size of the entire end zone. In 1997.

Jealous.

I went to the tour last year and the screen was comparable in size, but there was no lemon (that fucking lemon was sweet) and the spectacle wasn’t close to Pop Mart.

As someone who saw them at least three times during the ZooTV/Zooropa era, I can confirm that yes, you really do wish you'd had the chance to see them then. :D

The zoo tv tour was amazing.

They made a film to go with it with loads of live footage and the onscreen montages etc. It’s amazing. Edit-here it is.

Yeah Zoo TV was a true peak.

My brother saw that tour with Public Enemy opening. Outside the show they set up a bungee jumping thing. My brother did it and then after he came down Flavor Flav was standing there telling him he was crazy for doing it.

Nothing like bungee jumping, meeting Flavor Flav and seeing U2 during the Zoo TV tour all in one night.

I think it was watching this on TV that made me sit up and really pay attention to U2. Went out and bought Achtung Baby the next day

It’s a brilliant piece of art all on its own. U2 aren’t incidental to it but it was the moment I think a lot of people / hardcore old school u2 fans came back and got on board. They lost an awful lot of people with Achtung but gained new people too. Zoo tv went a long way to excite new and old fans alike.

It’s their best album. Joshua tree was brilliant but to go from that to Achtung shows a bravery and truly deep creative spirit sorely lacking in this band now and everything else these days.

And it has zooropa as a dessert. Must have been a wonderful time for them to be in that band.

The U2 by U2 book does a great job of documenting that time. And that doco, from the sky down, is a brilliant look at its conception.

Do you have that book?? I’d call it an essential own for even the most casual u2 fan.
Ironically enough you can buy it for like €2 in any bookshop in Dublin. They way overprinted this thing :) but it is a great read.

Did hope the pearl jam twenty book would be as comprehensive but while it attempted to follow the format it was a wilted awful poor version of it.
