Zooropa/Zoomerang: They were NOT ZOO TV.
« on: June 27, 2010, 01:05:55 AM »
I wanted to make a POLL question, but normal users are not allowed to create polls*.

I created this question after a You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login I had in the ZOO TV 2010? JUST DO IT! Discussion..

In that thread You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login claims that Zooropa and Zoomerang are not 'legs' of the ZOO TV tour, but are stand-alone non-ZOO TV tours.

What do you think?

*I was being an idiot!

Normal users can make polls. Example: Boom Cha!'s ongoing Ultimate U2 Song Tournament polls.

At the bottom of the board: New Topic | Mark Read | Notify | Post New Poll ;)

Hope that helps. :)

That's because you clicked on "New Topic" instead of "New Poll".

I apologise for that. I should have looked further. I'm used to phpbb3 and things are a bit different here. However, it is fixed!  ;D

Happy voting!

The third option amuses me, but I'll go with Yes, they were ZooTV. It was the same stage, overall same production that they did on Zooropa and Zoomerang, with the obvious changes like Mirrorball Man to MacPhisto and new songs. They may have been billed as the Zooropa Tour or the Zoomerang Tour (and that's OK with me) but overall they fit in with the whole ZooTV concept and reality.

At the time, I always felt the Zooropa and Zoomerang shows were clearly pointed towards the "Zooropa" album and taking the indoor Zoo TV concept, and letting more people see them, outdoors, in Europe and ROW. Certainly the show evolved a lot beyond Zoo TV and 5-6 new songs and several oldies taken out, as well as McPhisto in and Mirrorball Man retired. Over time, I think th3 Zoo Tv and Zoomerang shows have melded in history into one Zoo TV show, but that's not the way I saw it at the time, and if anyone says "Zoo Tv" to me, it's the 1992 show. There were no "Zoo TV" shows in 1993 ; all "Zooropa/Zoomerang".

It was ZOO TV, but Australia/NZ & Japan did get to hear half of the Zooropa album played during the show.

well yes... Same tour. Different setlist.

Good to see we're tackling the tough issues here today. Wars have started over this stuff...

If it's not Zoo TV it would make the release "U2 - Zoo TV Live from Sydney" very inappropriately named.
