I'll hold my judgement til I see The Claw for myself....but Zoo TV will be hard to top.

Zoo TV was the first U2 show I ever saw and so will always be timeless in my eyes.  It was at the time a revolutionary presentation of a rock n roll show with the b stage extending into the crowd.  The Claw SEEMS to dwarf the band and does'nt seem to have a THEME like Zoo TV or POP MART.  The Elevation show in an Arena is my ultimate show.

ZOOTV is honorably credited for changing the whole ball game of what is possible in a stadium show. POPMART took it a few steps further. NIN/Trent Reznor should get major points for his wildly innovative interactive screen. And U2360 well..i guess a stadium show in the round is fairly new?

I haven't seen the show yet but what I think I'm not seeing in the youtube videos is how the Set is the visual equivalent of the album NLOTH. I read an explanation I found/posted earlier here - but I'm not sold yet.

So, far the message I get from the visuals is that we should worship aliens with superior technology. I'd think it pretty funny if Bono and the lads dressed up in Star Trek uniforms. And started the show with the ST theme song and narration 'Space The Final Frontier'....and cut into a message/quote from the Dali Lama talking about how in Buddhism they have explored as much of the inner space as the West has explored the outer space" - paraphrasing. To me that would tie it all together and add a little humor at the same time.  8)

1.  Zoo TV

Exactly. ZooTV by far. Don't think anybody, even U2 can touch that one.
