ZooTVSydney is my fav, although REDROCKS is way up there too. That performance is so energetic and from a female admirers' viewpoint - cor what a ass on Bono there in fantastic close-up!
(sorry, couldn't help adding that salacious comment!)

I think that the best of the U2 Live videos/DVDs are in order:

1. Under A Blood Red Sky - Red Rocks 1983
2. Zoo TV Live - Sydney Australia 1993
3. U2 Go Home - Slane Castle - 2001
4. Popmart Live - Mexico City 1997
5. Rattle and Hum - 1988
6. Elevation Live - Boston 2001

Red Rocks was my first U2 video experience, and the show is outstanding. I've seen the US Festival video, and as great as that performance is, it's not Red Rocks. I think the Red Rocks experience must have been as close to a religious experience as you can get in a rock concert.

Sydney 1993 was just an outstanding performance. Hell, Adam was so hammered the night before he couldn't do the show, and then they blow the roof off the...uh, stadium. Well you know what I mean.

U2 Go Home Live at Slane Castle is a couple of notches better than the Boston show, and Popmart is a great production, but Bono struggles throughout that show with his voice, and Rattle and Hum is just too disjointed for me.

I hope they nail it this time with their concert DVD.

I think that the PopMart VHS is the band's best release. Zoo TV follows, but is hampered by a terrible audio track.

Rattle And Hum is obviously solid, as well...

I'm not a big fan of their last two "Live" DVD releases, though...

Under A Blood Red Sky is really solid, but tough to find...and it has aged.

Totally! It has Bono's best vocal performances. He is unbelievable!

Under A Blood Red Sky leaves the rest for dead.

"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."
