This is exactly what I heard too, that Popmart was not a big enough seller to bother with a re-release of, and that ZOO would come, eventually.

I'd much prefer the FULL Red Rocks concert on DVD rather than Sydney (even though I was there) or Mexico

At first I didn't think they'd be able to put PopMart Mexico City on DVD due to the poor quality of the picture, then I saw the Best of '90-'00 DVD with the Gone performance on there and it was crystal clear so it can happen.

I really want that on DVD, that tour was ahead of it's time and would look stunning on DVD now as would the ZOO TV from Oz as well.

Hopefully one day we'll get them both as constant reminders of how stunning those tours were. Sometime in the future we won't use VHS at all, so I'm sure U2 would want all there live shows out on DVD.

I think I may have heard the poor sales thing from you actually. LOL I had heard Popmart was shelved but I didnt know why before one of your posts on the subject. (oh, and I realize I got the years wrong on Sao Paolo and Santiago on my prior post on this thread. Should be 1998, not 1997 I'm sure someone would have corrected me eventually).

My dream at this point would be the complete Red Rocks show. Simply because good quality footage of that entire show is not out there. The other shows you can at least get complete very good DVDR copies as all the footage is out there.

Sell both concerts on DVD as a two-pack.

Zoo TV live at Sydney cannot be remastered in good enough a quality to be on DVD. I think original filming was not good enough for that to happen.

I have both on Video-CD's created from the VHS tapes so they're not of higher quality but at least they are digital and I can view them on my DVD player with all advantages a digital copy has.

What ??? Just watch "Led Zeppelin DVD", an awesome release containing more than 5 hours of live performances from 1969 to 1979 !!!!!

Zoo TV Sidney concert was performed in 1993...so if Led Zeppelin could released concerts from many years before Zoo TV and they could remaster all their performances on that DVD, why U2 can´t ??

Exactly, with todays technology, i'm sure it can be done, even if the filming was sub par. Maybe to do becasue it was live on pay per view??

Exactly what I was going to say. It wasn't filmed as a feature movie, it was only a broadcast to begin with. It's still hot though

I also hope that they release all three concerts on dvd! I think if they put any dvds out, they'll probably choose Red Rocks, since it's a classic...but I'd like to see Zoo TV and Popmart on dvd just as much. I agree that it's unlikely they'll put Popmart out on dvd, since it wasn't so commercially successful. I think this is a shame - a lot of the performances on that video are very good. The way they performed Last Night on Earth was perfection, in my opinion! I like the Popmart Mexico version more than the Pop version - and I really like the Pop version!

Because that was shot in Film which is much better quality that Zoo TV (it was show for TV).

If you have the VHS's, stop waiting for U2 to release the DVDs and do the following:

Get a TV tuner card, a DVD burner, and DVD authoring software, and install each.

Capture VHS Zoo or Popmart using the authoring software, into an mpeg file. Mark your scene points on the timeline it will likely give you.

Customize the menu screens etc etc

Put a DVD-R in the burner

Click burn

Come back in 30 minutes.

Insert DVD-R into your DVD player, turn TV on

Sit back and relax to the opening chords of 'Zoo Station' or 'Pop Muzik'

Repeat for other VHS
