Interesting fact about Zooropa album

Adam and Larry have not performed ANY song from Zooropa since 10 December 1993, except for the one-off performance of The Wanderer in 2005.
Stay and First Time are the only songs to be played from it since Zoo TV's end, and all those versions have been Bono & Edge acoustic. I wonder if Adam and Larry even remember the album exists!


Zooropa: 3 times, in Glasgow and London
Babyface: 5 times, all in the UK
Numb: 33 times
Lemon: 10 times, all in Australia, NZ and Japan
Stay: 23 times full band on Zoo TV. Acoustic after that.
Crashed Car: 10 times, all in Australia, NZ and Japan
Some Days: NEVER
First Time: Only snippeted until 12 years later
Dirty Day: 10 times, all in Australia, NZ and Japan
Wanderer: 1 time, 12 years later for the Johnny Cash tribute

for some reason, i believe that the song "Zooropa" will be played this tour. yes, i know there haven't been any rehearsal reports or anything like that, but i just have this feeling.

Really?

Didn't he say "Drowning Man" during a promo interview for NLOTH in France,

He also said "Drowning Man" when asked on the Late Late Show in 1987!

That would make me extremely happy, although I highly doubt it. But I'll buy stock in your feelings.

I can't complain... I was lucky enough to see The First Time live on its entirely.

Anyway, I don't know... both Larry and Adam seem to like this album. Maybe the band feel it doesn't work live without Zoo TV.

Well I thought that too, but when it emerged they were practicising it for 360I looked it up on Youtube, and somebody had commented just that.

I guess its a special song for Adam, because Bono wrote the lyrics about him!

I personally think its an amazing song! sounds v different, dreamy and atmospheric,
a real hint at what was gonna follow on TUF!

Wasn't Daddy's Gonna Pay snippeted with The Fly on the Vertigo tour a few times? I guess that doesn't count though.

This sounds like a PLEBA fan fic in the making...

Zooropa just isn't a strong album for live performances. I love the album, it's my favorite of U2's, but I am not at all surprised by these statistics.
