The Zoo TV tour was U2's crowning glory and upped the ante for all subsequent big tours which even U2 could not match in Popmart. All that is missing is the DVD version with high quality digital stereo!

Very good concert IMO - better than POPmart - Bonos voice is very clear and a good selection of songs (mostly ACHTUNG BABY stuff) some popul;ar songs missing (Sunday Bloody Sunday)
Biggest let down is that this isn NOT on DVD - crappy VHS with crappy video and sound (plus its 10 years old) - bear that in mind if you decide to buy a used one!
I would recommend ELEVATION 2001 DVD - better quality sound/audio and the concert itself is better as well.

In my opinion this was U2 at their best in terms of Live performance. Better than Pop Mart, better show that Elevation (although Bono's voice on Elevation beats this).
Highlights =
Lemon, With or Without You, The Fly, One, the usual classics from post Joshua Tree. But the part that does it for me is a haunting rendition of 'Love is Blindness'. As a band, they kick *ss on that song and thank god they did it live. As an album track it is good, but here it is amazing. What a way to end a gig !!
Heres the crunch..... if you can't wait, then go and buy it now. If you can, then wait for the DVD. As probably their most innovative live show, U2 have to release this on DVD.
One interesting point is that the night this was recorded is the night after Adam Clayton went AWOL.
If you liked Achtung Baby, you will love it.

This show is simply stunning. I think it's the best U2 live-video/dvd so far. Highlights are One, Mysterious Ways, Untill the End of the World, Running to stand still transforming into the ultimate live-version of Where the Streets have no Name. This is where the stadium litteraly explodes! Please let the rumours of a dvd-release before the end of this year be true...

I have been a huge U2 fans for years, and to be honest, this is one of the greatest concerts I have ever seen. Even friends who are not U2 fans said it was amazing. You cant belive that a band can perform that well live. This really is a must

This tape was hardly ever out of the VCR during my student days, mainly because of the wonderful combination of Running To Stand Still and Where The Streets Have No Name just before the encore.
Running... was let down on the Joshua Tree album by uninspired production, but here, with Edge playing a totally different guitar line over a stripped-down backing track, it really shines. And this is the definitive performance of Streets: the tension of the long intro, the lighting, Bono's incredible vocals mean it's really the only recording of the song you need.
The rest of the show is a mixture of the early 90s Trabant-era stuff and their big 80s hits. It's the best round-up of their first 15 years you'll find. I just wish it was available on DVD!

U2 have a repretation for wierd and wonderful live shows, Zoo tv is as wierd as it gets. But for some reasons it falls behind Popmart and Elavation tours in my book. The set list is extremely frustrating as alot of the Actung baby stuff doesn't really cut much ice live. You have to question the inclusion of the covers (satillite of love and Unchained melody). However the start is blistering with "The Fly", "Even better than the real thing" and "Mysterious ways" being highlights. On the Fly words and phrases flash on the big screens. Bono has lots of fun causing mischief with his new toys including "Bono cam" and his remote for the zoo tv screens. The middle part is a let down but the show is saved by the encore where Bono transformes into Macphisto the devil complete with horns, make up and high heels. Lemon is a great song live and the show features perhaps the best version of with or without you.
