Zoo TV, no question. Bono's vocals were suspect during Popmart

Bono's ZOO TV voice - too epic for words.  His awesome falsetto in Mysterious Ways immediately comes to mind ("I'll give you roses, i'll buy you things..")

Everything about Zoo TV is just mind blowing. I watched the first three songs in NY from a broadcast on YouTube, it had the crackly screen and everything!

Even Bono walking out and singing those opening melodies with that distorted voice before Zoo Station kicks in.... it actually sounds like a Fly!! Just a genius tour

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.
Oops...I meant to say I have the DVD's...a bit different than the cd's. I mean, I have the cd's, too, but ya can't really WATCH them, can you? Oh, shut up, riffy! :-[
You can watch CD's, but it's a bit boring :D

ok, a true confession...when I first bought HTDAAB I was thrilled that there were two "cd's" in it, I kept trying to play the dvd in my cd player...couldn't figure out why it wouldn't play.  :-[

ok now i see why an ipod playlist is way out of your league ;)

Popmart appreciates the 9 pity votes it got i'm sure.

So it's currently about 4 votes to 1 in Zoo TV's favour.  I saw Zoo TV 5 times but the opening salvo of Mofo into I Will Follow at Popmart was amazing.

PopMart was stunning, but Zoo TV was something else entirely.

Regrettably missed both tours, and going by the DVDs, a number of songs I've still yet to hear on both. I go back to ZooTV more often though.

lol ZooTV....not even a contest.

Ditto.  When Bono said that PopMart "walks all over Zoo TV", I think he was, ah, mistaken.

Two of the very best outdoor stadium shows I have had the pleasure of witnessing.

There's no shame in Popmart being 2nd to ZooTV, I'm not sure that there are many shows greater than this one by any artist.

That U2 are capable of putting on two extraordinary but completely different shows really brings home how lucky we were to follow this band during this time.

Ha! To be fair, that particular trend seemed to start with PopMart. I wasn't used to it yet.

Popmart, on every level and by every measure.
