Popmart best U2 tour, Miss Sarajevo best song - according to Bono!

This was in the recent Irish Times feature on U2. Can't find it on the website...so you will just have to trust me.

I thought Bono's favorite song was Stay (Faraway, So Close!), according to his Xmas morning interview on the BBC a couple years ago! Why does Bono lie?

It's interesting how the songs that I've heard Bono call his favorites (and the only ones he really likes, on some occasions) the most often are Stay, Miss Sarajevo, and Your Blue Room... all from Zooropa and OS1.

Hmmm, I might agree with him there. Even though the setlists were still slightly static and Bono's voice failed more times than usual on a few occasions that was a very creative and exciting tour. They were all wearing their punk attitude pretty tight and pushing for more inventive stuff with no fear at all. They were really taking chances in my opinion. Miami is a nice example of that. Edge was singing SBS. LNOE-UTEOTW-NYD is one of their best live moments ever. Please was a highlight night after night. Streets had the extra ending. Gone and EBTTRT made a great statement of sound and attitude. There was the Lemon. Entering from the crowd. Mind blowing beginning with Mofo. Awesome costumes and a lot of irony. And a perfect final leg. Yeah, it might be my favorite tour as well. I certainly keep going back to that Mexico DVD.

Popmart? You mean that tour where they played a lot of the songs from Pop?

Damn right that's your favourite tour Bono.

Bono just liked showing off his opera skillz on the last tour

(And hell, if you've got them, why not show them off?)

Hey, ZooTV is amazing, I honestly can't choose between that and Popmart. I think Bono's voice was stronger on ZooTV. Both were pretty innovative, both feature songs from my favourite albums.

To be totally unfair to PopMart, I think we often think of ZooTV as the more innovate monster of the two because the PopMart screen has been copied by almost every major band since then... including U2 themselves, on the Vertigo Tour. It doesn't look that impressive... until you realize a) how big it was (impossible to capture on a DVD) and b) how it essentially defined touring from then on, and how it was not just a stereotypical concert LED screen... it was the first concert LED screen.

ZooTV, on the other hand... well, no one has dared to directly rip that thing off.

Popmart was fucking great. I just wish I went to more than one as I was front row, so the video screen was pretty much lost on me. That and Helena Christensen and Christy Turlington spent nearly half the show standing right in front of me. Fairly distracting.

I believe Bono has said that Miss Sarajevo was one of his favorite U2 songs.

Miss Sarajevo is my favourite U2 song

Though to be honest I've always felt that it really belongs to Pavarotti. I'll never forget the first time I heard the live version in 1995 and got electric goosebumps when that monster of a voice kicked in.

Not going to see POPMart when it came to Melbourne is one of my biggest musical regrets I was just a casual fan then and in the end finances said no.
