It's been 25 years since the ZooTV Dublin gig



One of their greatest gigs. I fondly remember listening to it on the radio live when I was very, very young. The cassette recording got played very often in those times. Top versions of pretty much everything (apart from With or Without You - I don't know if the painfully abbreviated version was a curfew thing or what) - Zoo Station, Mysterious Ways, Bullet the Blue Sky and Love is Blindness in particular.

Pretty much the band in their pinnacle.

This was the first U2 bootleg I was really into. I was listening to it a lot when I first signed up here. Man, time flies.

I spent $50 on the two-disc bootleg at Atomic Records in Milwaukee in the late 90s.

Worth it.

My favorite U2 gig, easily. Even with the trunc-ed With or Without You, and the fact that Bad wasn't at its best on ZooTV. Everything else is a knockout - Bono's falsetto at the end of Mysterious Ways is just stunning.

I was at both Dublin gigs - the 27th and 28th. Fantastic experience.

Probably the one U2 gig besides Red Rocks I wish I'd been around for.

How does it compare to them now?

To me it sounds in a different league from anything I have seen (from Vertigo tour onwards) - both song hcoiuce and just musically.

I do wonder though if I am being overly romantic about what it was like. That said, the recordings can't lie!

Oh yeah that’s right. I tend to get my years mixed up as I get older. I’m 36, but the other day I told somebody I was 37, because I actually thought I was 37! 2003, 2004, 2005... it’s all starting to blur together now.
