I saw Zoo TV in Toronto during the Outside Broadcast Leg. Best U2 show I have seen to date. But I would have loved to seen Zooropa tour to see the whole concept brought to fruition. Never got the chance since Zooropa wasn't brought to the U.S.

Only the Aussies, New Zoolanders and the Japanese got to see anything resembling a Zooropa tour.  And it was wasted on them.

Hey I heard it 4 times at the MCG over 2 nights.

Twice over the PA and twice echoing off the southern stand. Good value.

 ;D

It was a LOT cheaper than what it cost me to see Vertigo 23 times!

Wow, thanks for the response! That's amazing- and Vertigo 23 times must be true devotion...

I have been front row or close to it (whether GA or seats on the floor) at every show I have been too. Bono took a hat of my head at a the Sheffield Zoo TV show, sang the song and gave it back to me. I have also met every member of the band numerous times.

Droo, I read "that hair" in such a hilarious voice in my head. Zoost, you're undoubtedly one of the luckiest people on this forum. :)

Saw Zoo T.V. both indoors and out, Indoors was actually better for me due to the immersion factor with the staging, you weren't very far from the intense staging and lighting-and it sucked you right in...quite tripped out.
