Are there any pictures of Stuart Morgan in Sydney?
« on: December 16, 2010, 06:24:28 AM »
As I'm sure many (most?) of us know, when ZooTV landed in Sydney back in November 1993 Adam had such a bad hangover that he wasn't able to play the first show.  Since they had to get everything ready for the filming of ZooTV in Sydney the next night, the show could not be postponed.  To solve the problem, Adam's tech, Stuart Morgan, filled in for Adam that night.  To date it's the only U2 show not to have all 4 members of the band.

My question is:  are there any pictures of this night?  any shot of Stuart playing bass during the concert?

I'm sure there was footage made that night since that infamous night was supposed to the the original film night! I'd love to see it as well!

The second night was always going to be the film night - they needed the first night as the dress rehearsal though, which is why they couldn't cancel. I would assume that there is footage somewhere of the show, but it's likely under lock and key. Being 1993, there wouldn't have been anywhere near the number of cameras at the show that there are these days and any photos taken would be on film, so there's not likely to be many pics floating around. The other thing is that Stu wasn't spotlit at all during the show.

The only picture I've seen is in the Concert Documentary book by Pimm Jal de la Parra

Oddly enough, the Sydney newspaper Daily Telegraph had a pic of Stu playing bass at the Sydney show in it just the other day, in the story "When Love Comes to Town" (Bono's love letter to Sydney)... I can't scan sorry, but will do when I'm back at work in a week if you'd like?
