I remeber how excited I was when I was able to hook myself up with a copy of the Sydney Laser Disc from the record company. I took it over to a friend's way back then. The sad truth, however, is that I never did own a Laser Disc player.

Do we even know what a Laser Disc is these days?!?!? Talk about PRIMITIVE!

Oh yeah, the other compliment to this Syndey show is the Pro Shot Adelaide Zoomerang concert; plenty of fans have that one on VHS. THAT was a great performance as well!

.....and I do have to agree to a small degree that watching a show on video etc is not quite the same as being there - this refers to ZooTV/Zooropa/Zoomerang/Zoo-mo(Japan). I was fortunate to have seen nearly two dozen of the ZooTV era shows over several continents. I miss those days!

A Laser Disc? Please do explain what it is. I have CDRs made by a company named Laser ... does that count? Hee.

It's like a CD only about the size of an LP and with video on it.

are the playable on DVD players or CD-Rom drive in the PC's?

and i'm guessing those of you that do have the show on Laser Disc would have the complete show with TTTYATW
which would be nice to have!

You're THAT YOUNG? I always took you for someone much older and worldly. I mean that as a compliment, no offense.

Long live ZOO TV

Hey, thanks Tabby! Yeah, I'm sixteen. Nearly seventeen, but shame that 'nearly' wasn't enough to get me to ZooTV!

I still remember staying up for the HBO broadcast of this concert. This concert and the R&H vid (which I only watched around this period) was really what got me into U2. It's hard to believe it was already ten years ago - it sure does make me feel so old. But in that ten year span, the only studio albums we go was POP and ATYCLB. U2 are slow, but at least ATYCLB was worth the wait.

Cheers,

J
