ZooTV. Even though it was OVER the top was the last tour I saw where it didn't feel 100% like a production instead of a live show. Bono use to go off script all the time back in the day :(

I was too young to see Zoo TV...

But everytime I watch the DVD or videos on Youtube, I get chills

Zoo TV for me

My first U2 concert was POPMART and I loved it. The giant Lemon was the highlight of the stage and the setlist was good. However, ZOO-TV was so much better. I've only watched Zoo-TV DVD and Clips on youtube. I like the stage setup and the setlist was out of the park. 8)

Zoo TV was probably the better show but I enjoyed Popmart more.

I was older, wiser, travelled a bit...

But to watch the DVDs, ZOO TV hands down. But there in the moment... I enjoyed Popmart more.

Specifically Popmart Sydney. The rain, the lightning, the broken lemon...

I missed both.   ZooTV started in Lakeland FL and Miami FL and it sold out in seconds.  I was living in Jacksonville FL at the time.

In 1997, I moved to NYC where PopMart had already played.  From what I understand, it was raining hard during the Popmart show in Jacksonville.

I made up for it for the Elevation and Vertigo tours.  Between those 2, I have seen almost all the Actung Baby songs that they played during ZooTV.   And since I didn't like Pop, I didn't miss a thing.

Zoo TV all the way. Truly groundbreaking. You watch the DVD today and it STILL seems light years ahead of what anyone is doing as far as staging, including U2

ZooTV...best Stadium Tour of all time 8)

The arena shows were excellent but they took it to another level with Outside Broadcast...

Never saw either show in person only on the DVD's but I think ZooTv is a better show. I didn't know that U2 were first to have a B-stage. That's awsome!!!
