Yes - I'd agree with that!

One of the 50, or 1 of 50?

One of the 50....they weren't ranked but were listed chronologically.  So 1992 belonged to U2.  They recognized 5 other U2 tours too.  Of course, Andy Greene wrote the article for ZooTV.

I would expect zoo to feature in a list like this - i would expect it to feature in a top 10 list as well

Zoo TV should be in the top 5 tours of all time. I'm surprised the Joshua Tree tour didn't make it

Honestly, though... what other tours even come close to Zoo TV?

For me, it's #1 but I'm biased. Off the top of my head, I'd say few. Maybe Pink Floyd's the wall tour. Born in the USA. Use your illusion. But nothing came close to the innovation of Zoo TV

It's tough to say, Zoo TV is definitely up there for my money.  In many ways Bowie's Glass Spider Tour is a precursor to it and led artists like U2, Madonna, Prince, the Rolling Stones, etc. to experiment more.  Though it was plugging a sh**ty album, Never Let Me Down, it was still quite the show.  I think initially it was received negatively, but overtime its legacy has endured.  Zoo TV took it to new heights however, and no band including U2 have really been able to top it IMO.  A landmark and quite prophetic too. 

As for others, The Wall Live is certainly a good contender, Prince's Nude or Lovesexy tour, I'd put some Nine Inch Nails, perhaps the With Teeth or Lights In the Sky tour up there.  Rage Against the Machine (Woodstock 99 or their 2000 Olympic Auditorium, albeit those are specific gigs), which is certainly some of the most intense energy I've experienced at a gig.  I guess you could say their reunion tour was pretty damn memorable and hyped (despite the similar setlists).  McCartney has had some pretty memorable tours in the last decade and he's still going (like 2.5 hours every night, setlists could use some variety though).  Springsteen is a given of course, not sure which tour specifically.  Kanye West's recent Life of Pablo/Yeezus tours were pretty epic and some of the most inventive hip-hop shows this decade has seen.  Whatever you think of him, dude can put on a show. 

All in all, there's a lot of great gigs/tours out there.

Good post, DK. I'm lucky to have seen some great shows, and that Zoo TV was my first. Peter Gabriel also had some innovative ones: I saw Secret World, which was amazing, but his previous tours are notable, too. Depeche Mode, too, for popularizing live electronic music.

One of the greatest show I ever saw was Bowie's Ziggy Stardust tour back in the early 70's.

Of course I am Bias, but I think Zoo TV is the best tour I have ever been too.  Seen it in the Arena version and Outside broadcast and both were impressive...of course the scale of the Outside broadcast was impressive.   I also really enjoyed the 360 Tour for a variety of reasons, but the whole Claw and the enormity of that was incredibly impressive as well.

Good shout for The Wall Live. Nothing can top Zoo TV, though.
