I was lucky enuff to hear Zooropa live on one of the two times (I think) it was actually played live. It was one of the Glasgow Zoo TV gigs. They also soundchecked SDABTO but as far as i know....that has NEVER been played live

From the setlists I have seen from 1993 it seems it was played 3 times. Twice at Wembley and once at Glasgow, so you was indeed one of the lucky ones.

Yeah, Zooropa was done three times, Babyface five, and SDABTO unfortunately never. Now that bass would be great live.

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."

Awesome clip.

It's funny, even though I don't expect them to play more than one of the songs off that album, I have found myself spinning this disc quite a bit lately.

It would be a great opening number on any tour, but especially a big stadium gig.

Five too many for Babyface. Cannot believe they gave Zooropa (a much better song) less attempts. Even so, in terms of songs from Zooropa played live I reckon Lemon owns everything by a wide margin. Maybe I'm biased because I was there in Sydney (x2) to witness / hear it in person.

Maybe if they used the tape intro at the start. Instead it's too short and doesn't work.

Then again only Stay and Dirty day (thanks to the solo) really worked live from that album.
