It is finally going to happen! U2's Zoo TV tour is finally coming to DVD.
Most of the '90s were good to U2. This was the period of the band's history when they were cutting edge, when they were out in front of everyone. Sure, they had made great music before Achtung Baby but with that album and Zooropa U2 pushed boundaries. The two tours for those albums, Zoo TV and Popmart, are probably better on TV than they were in person. These shows were made for DVD before there was DVD. So why the blue hell did it take so long to get at least one of them released?
Zoo TV Live From Sydney has been digitially remastered and a disc of bonus features has been compiled for the DVD release (the concert was previously available on VHS).
This DVD package is long overdue. Too many of us discovered U2 too late and this is as close to experiencing the amazing spectacle that was Zoo TV as we are ever going to get (I have seen the VHS once). There was so much going on you could feel your brain sweating just to keep up with it. I suppose that was the point: information overload. The show was brilliant and the band was armed with one of — and then two — the best albums of their career. A brilliant stage concept, two great albums, and TV. What more could a fan want?
