Which do you like better: ZooTV or Popmart
« on: May 16, 2017, 03:17:09 PM »
There was a poll in the music section about the better album: Zooropa or Pop. Pop seems to win (but everything is still possible). I wanted to check if the tour is better, too.

I came to this idea for this poll a few days ago. A year, or more, ago I was very into ZooTV. But after a while I was seeing a lot of Popmart shows. So I thought that Popmart was the best.
Then I saw the day before yesterday Even Better Than The Real Thing and Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World. And what a joy during that show!

I didn't make my choice yet. ;)Feel free to tell why you have chosen your favorite.  :)

(Maybe there's a better board for this, but I think 'Tours' is too busy 8))

Maybe it's the best rock tour. But nothing can beat the Giant Lemon

I am a massive fan of Pop and Popmart - utterly, utterly brilliant and as time has gone on Pop has overtaken AB as my favourite u2 album...

But the zooropa tour is for me their finest live achievement and most brilliantly executed idea....macphisto elevating an already fantastic creation even further.

I think it is. And the band members clearly enjoying the gigs and songs. But still something in me says Popmart

I wasn't able to attend either tour, but I do have the cd's for each. I think ZooTV is a much better performance, in general. Parts of Popmart are unbeatable and unbelievable, but overall ZooTV wins.

Cant, and won't argue with this.

I prefer AB to Pop by a very long margin, but I really enjoyed Popmart - the show was greater than the sum of its parts (the setlist).  There was a vibe to the Popmart performance that I really enjoyed.  The Zoo TV shows were fantastic too, of course.  Certainly it was a more radical departure than Popmart, and obviously it was nice to see it in an arena and not just a stadium.  But I'm going to vote Popmart.

Well, my first live U2 experience was with the big lemon almost exactly 20 years ago, but Zoo TV is the reason I wanted to see the big lemon XD  Achtung Baby and Zoo TV was my introduction to U2 and quite frankly ZOO TV is without question the most life altering live concert experience of my generation...and Bono as The Fly was the best thing that happened to my puberty  ;) ZOO TV ALWAYS WINS!
