Edge zoo question

This one is for the zoo experts , folks could u tell me which concert was that one of the classic Edge playing in th rain pic ? He's wearing a blue jacket and playing likely Ultraviolet , judging that he's using his Gibson Explorer.

I know what picture you mean, but I've no idea what show it's from.

I've seen the picture too.
I wouldn't be surprised if one of the ladies from Pleba could supply some details.

Now I did remember there's also a photo of MacPhisto , in a rainy show , so I suppose it's the same.

A review from u2tours mentions that it poured rain on 8/16/92 in DC, so it could be that one. Luckily, I saw them the night before that show.

Possibly June 30, 1993 in Switzerland then? That review mentions pouring rain too.

That was from the first night of Zooropa - Rotterdam, May 9th, 1993.

^ Correct.

It was my first U2 show!!!
It rained a lot during the day and during the support acts, but it was dry when the band started. When the encores started -with the debut of MacPhisto- it started raining again. I guess God wasn't too happy with Bono's transformation.

This leads me to a conclusion , If I fly one day for europe to watch a u2 concert , i will totally either go for Dublin (pretty obvious) or Rotterdam , or maybe Milan ( So I can catch some soccer games as well ) . But it really seems that all concerts in Rotterdam are epics , in the LoveTown Edge delivered those solos a hell of a night , in PopMart came out that awesome Please single , and now in ZooTV these photos pretty much tell everything , must have been quite a night and all , and even to play under rain like that .

I have to put my hands in a good boot of it , now u tell me guys , what was the highlights of the night ?

Yeah those pics are from Rotterdam 9th of May.
I was at that show too and it was just to see Bono as McPhisto for the time.
During Love Is Blindness there even was a thunder storm.

Seeing McPhisto walking around the stage 10 feet from me away with lightning flashing behind in the skies was a terrifying experience

All in all super pics of the night.

Cheers ,

Mauwer

To be honest, I can't remember that much anymore from that night. I do know I had a good spot (right in front of the B-stage, though just out of reach when Bono went into the audience during Until The End Of The World). And that MacPhisto delivered a speech (in my memory it's always before Desire, but the boot tells me it's after that song).

However, if you want to have a boot, go for the show of the next night (10 May 1993). You can find that one as Bono's Birthday Party and it's an even better show. Party Girl, I Will Follow, Are You Lonesome Tonight (this last one instead of Can't Help Falling In Love) and overall a better show. Plus there is a hilarious phonecall by MacPhisto with a KLM travel agent. You have to hear it to believe it.

Sadly, I wasn't at this concert.

I have that one. I'll work on uploading it this weekend.
