Zoo TV-Sydney, Pomart-Mexico City Question.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if these shows will ever be released on DVD? I've wanted them for so long but I just can't bring myself to buy them on VHS. Anyways any info would be greatly appreciated and I apologise if this type of question has been asked a million times. Thanks.

You watch most of your videos/DVD's with the pause button on? BUt yeah I hear ya. I can't bring myself to buy VHS anymore. Especially since the VCR is packed away in a box somewhere. You'd think that in 2004 these videos would have been converted over to DVD by now. Who cares about the Star Wars DVD's(well I do actually) but ZOO TV and Popmart is what I really want.

2 Christmases ago, I was told by a guy who works in a mall video store that ZOO was coming soon and Pop would never be put on DVD. I haven't seen anything else. Perhaps The Edge knows something

Edge won't be back for a while.

Maybe for some techno issue they can't be remastered and U2 simply don't want to transfer the crappy VHS onto DVD like people on ebay are doing now...

anybody know if there is an issue?

Hola Amigos

Please Edge, if you´re reading these posts, if you really want to release the truly best show from Pop Mart Tour on DVD, release Pop Mart Santiago, Chile 11-02-1998 Is not my own opinion, just ask the guys who have collected bootlegs all these years

All we know that concert was filmed from the REAL begining ( "Mission Impossible" ) to the very end ( When Chilean Mothers Of The Dissapeared left the stage ) and transmited live.

I still remember when you played "Sunday Bloody Sunday", I had learned that version some days before concert, to see if I could be invited to the stage to play that song with you!!!! (well, all we all have big dreams Edge, or not? )

I still don´t understand why you released Mexico City 03-12-1997 as official one from Pop Mart Tour, given U2 played at least 15 concerts better than that one. Even the first Mexican Night 02-12-1997 was 10 times better than the Official one !!!!

But with Zoo TV you made it my friend

Peace

I do remember reading along time ago that U2 don't like to settle. They want to do everything to the best of their ability. I recall reading somthing like the band was waiting for the dvd technology to peak or somthing before converting them. Though I can't name a source and I'm not even sure if I actually read this but it does ring a bell for some reason. Thanks you guys for trying to help or at least showning that I'm not the only one who is wondering about this.

You touched a nerve with me also, Im on uni hols and watched both vids and the boston/ slane dvds this week to procrastinate from assignments and actually was annoyed at the quality of the videos compared to the dvds.

aahh technology.

There was another thread on this a few months ago. The rumor is that Zoo will be put to DVD eventually. THere is no time frame though. Popmart is "supposedly" permanently shelved and may never see DVD release. Apparantly it was not as successful as other releases. We will just have to wait and see. I dont think you will see either though anytime soon. Red Rocks may happen before either of those and that is up in the air as well.

As mentioned above though, trade for copies of the Sao Paolo 97 and/or Santiago 97 DVD's over Mexico City. WAY better shows and they are excellent quality.

Ugh; this is the eternal unaswered question.

ZooTV is such an incredible show...the best tour U2 has ever done, great assortment of songs, awesome, energetic performance, MacPhisto...I could go on all day. No U2 product of any kind comes close to this one in my opinion. It is hands down my favorite.

And to think that this video won a Grammy...and we STILL don't have it on DVD!?!?! It's almost blasphemy.

Popmart would be nice on DVD, but I could live without it.

It might make sense to release the two together - as a double set. Most fans would want both. My VCR broke and I'm not buying another one just to watch Zootv and Popmart. I'm waiting for the DVDs.
