5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for the U2 fan or U2 collector 15 May 2004
By Brian Hedden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the updated version. The first book that came out covered U2 from their earliest stages up through to the beginnings of the Popmart tour. This one carries us through the Popmart tour right through to the end of the Elevation tour. Pretty much every U2 show ever played is covered to some extent, whether it's just with a setlist or a lengthy review. Each tour has a page or so dedicated to an overview and then each show is detailed to some extent. If you're just a fan of the band you'll get a kick out of many of the shows details (the pizza order/delivery from 1992 being fantastic). If you're a collector of shows this book is to U2 fans what Deadbase or those Tapers Compendium books are to Grateful Dead fans. It's either a lot of fun to read or a rich source of information. Just a blast.
On a side note most of the book is written by Pimm Jal de la Parra. I'm not sure if it says it anywhere but apparently he had passed away during the creation of this updated version. A few people had gotten together to finish it off for him. They most certainly did him proud.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate U2 reference book 10 Mar. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Every die hard U2 fan must own this book. A Concert Documentary provides extensive info including venue, date, attendance figures and descriptions of, literally, EVERY single show U2 has ever played (up until the end of the Zooropa tour). It also includes many pictures. The last few pages contain comprehensive lists of: songs never performed live, cover songs performed, guests appearing onstage, etc. Absolutely essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Document of the U2 Live Experience 24 Dec. 2003
By J. Musgrove - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Hands-down the best book for collectors, fans, completists and trivia buffs. Compiled from thousands of sources by devoted but objective fans, this book is a good read, reference book and very interesting look inside each tour. As a long time collector, I have always heard that if a setlist exists in this book, there is a recording of that show, somewhere in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW--Second only to the Bible!! 26 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A chronological masterpiece recording every single U2 performance from their earliest beginnings to the Zooropa tour. Such concert details as set lists, personal descriptions of each show, photos, and even concert stubs are not overlooked. Even the band themselves probably would not remember such details as this book divulges. This should be the Bible for any true U2 fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential U2-fan Concert Guide 15 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If only we all were so lucky to have the time to so completely research and gather U2 concert stories and memorbillia! This book is so fantastic - it's almost as good as being there, and it keeps interest of even non-U2 fanatics. Can't wait for an updated version to include the Popmart tour (hint, hint)- I have a few stories to add to that one.
