Objectively, it's probably zoo TV.

However i never saw it in person so I'm going to vote I and E from what I've seen. A magnificent, creative show performed with passion and very strong set lists. My favourite tour that I have attended by a long way.

I have seen all tours since TJT except Lovetown.  However my vote went to Lovetown anyway. ..!!  Did not see that you could choose two.  I would like to add  elevation or zoo. Or pop....

Personally i feel somebody can only vote for a tour they have witnessed in the flesh..

So my vote goes to Zooropa - with Popmart runner up.

Zooropa was my first tour and they have never topped it - no other show i have seen by any other artist has either.

I remember how disappointed I was when they dropped Ultraviolet at the GMEX concert I went to on that tour.

The Joshua Tree tour was very special and if you read back on any of the reviews I don't think there was one bad show on the tour.  I can still remember the hairs on the back of the next standing when I heard the intro for Streets played live and the band walking on stage.  Those shows weren't concerts, they were events.  U2 were for the first time the biggest band in the world and everyone wanted to see them.  Ending each show with "40" and the chorus being sung by the crowd into the night was also very special.

Sound quality is as important as any aspect of live performances in my book. They have done an incredible job with that on this tour.

Surprised Popmart only has 1 vote so far.  Many long-term fans at the shows I went to were recounting how brilliant that tour was.

Guess who that vote belongs to  :)

A band absolutely on fire and at their peak on that tour.

Didn't you say Popmart was your runner up?  :P  To this day I regret only going to one Popmart Show.

Yeah - Zooropa shades it. You were allowed to vote for two so my two votes went to the two 90's tours.
