Yes, I think it would be the only chance at hearing acrobat.

I would happily attend a AB30 tour, but not a ZooTV 30.  While ZooTV continues to be my favorite show from U2, as it is most on the forum, to see a 61 year old Fly or Macphisto skulking the stage frankly I think would be embarrassing.  Those characters were of a time and place, I don't think they need to make a return nor should they in my opinion.

I would also be very difficult to compare a ZooTV30 to ZooTV.  There would be no way I can see one could stand up to the other, unlike TJT30 which has played out well, again IMO.

i would love to see a zoo tv show since i was too young to see the original, but i would hope they wouldn't call it zoo tv 30 but instead just continued the original show and updated it a bit.

If it were at all possible, I would go to any and every show that U2 would offer.

Enjoyed JT30, so would definitely attend an AB in its entirety concert as I prefer that album even more. Agree that it would likely be the only way Acrobat gets played, just like RHMT with this tour.

Depends if U2 ever produce any more meaningful music

that is why JT30 happened

U2s current music has become irrelevant

Yeah, that's a good point. But just as TJT30 was an updated version of the original tour, I see no reason why the band couldn't take the same approach to ZooTVredux.

Please, it would be the highlight of any U2 concert live

U2 have a couple of forgotten gems that they have never played.

So Cruel being one of them.

U2-

Please Forgot Sunday Bloody Sunday and One.

Sing your unknown specials.

Without a doubt.

I'd love to see what has become of the Fly and the Mr. MacPhisto after all these years. ;)

Imagine a Fat Fly that had taken one two many attacks of fly spray

and an old has been named McPhisto.

I wonder if he ever did get a call into the Whitehouse?

I think it would time well with an imminent release of Songs of Ascent
