wink Zoo Station

They are kings for playing ZS again. More so as most people don't appear to recongnise it. For me it's one of the best songs they've written. ZS followed by The Fly made this tour the best since Zooropa imo.

No specific point to this thread. Just appreciation and vibes.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the ZS/The Fly combo is the best part of the show

Loved the "creative" lyrics from some of the early dates though. I was just listening to opening night The Fly.

I cannot agree with you more.

One of my best memories of this song on the current tour was Croke 2 in front of the pitch, where I could only hear Larry's drums (we couldn't see him), where the opening beats were so damn loud and powerful, it was awesome. Unbelievable.

I think the versions of Zoo Station these days are the best so far. Just listen to that drum intro...
I can't believe I'm saying this... but the Vertigo versions kick the shit out of the ZooTV ones.

Zoo Station is without doubt one of the top ten songs of all time with probably the best intro EVER!

I actually liked that improv!



Zoo Station = kickass. I get the biggest adrenaline rush ever hearing that song blasting!
And the 'costumes' this tour certainly help.

Zoo Station will always hold a special place in my heart b/c it's the first U2 song I ever saw live!

I agree that the intro is killer.

A goosebump moment for sure.

The beginning of Zoo Station is simply breathtaking live. It goes right through you and rocks so much.

Maybe not one of the top 10 of all time songs but certainly one of their best songs performed live.

I couldn't agree more! Though i regret there's no Mysterious Ways anymore, it would fit better than Wowy, which sadly lost it's power and magic nowadays...
