You should all be happy that we're not getting the "Hamish 2006 Edit (tm)" version of the concert.

oh well, having old stuff in better quality is always good.
you know, whatever they've hidden in their drawers would have been way too expensive to put on the dvd.

As for the whining...

Some people on this board will never be satisfied with anything the band does.
Txs for the understanding , it's like this , but I'm a south-american actually . And yeah the prices ....... Just so u have an idea , last year I bought Chicago's dvd , I wanted so much a vertigo dvd as early as possble .......... Anyway I paid around 30 dollars for a Single Disc Version ......

1st thing , Let be clear , just coz I posted this on EYKIW , that this doesn't mean I'm like some nuts who say the band ripping , selling out ..... Hell just looked at what I say in the Possible Greatest Hits Thread , about what some people were saying .......

About the whining yeah , it's undeniable , the thing is I do love DVDs , specially U2's ones , after all is the closest experience u get of real live Exp , I'm just this guy who expects a LOT in these products , specially coming from a tour dvd that had so much to present ....... What I got a real complaining , is that there are only 4 live tracks , and 2 of them are in COBL single , people like thought bout buyin it , And When I mean buy a single , keep in mind it's gotta be by importating ..... so it's kinda let down , specially for the ones who already got the single , to have the same tracks on the dvd ..............

Now One thing That would shut me up completely is one single video DVD quality of Ultra Violet , not only I love this song live , but also , call me a guitar jeek , coz I am but I Mean it was the only song played with the Explorer , and I so did want those sounds , It's very weird a U2 dvd coming and not even a single song with it .........

Maybe is like that .... It's quite funny actually , maybe is the concert in the end of the day , I know that if they released a DVD concert only of Pop Mexico today , I would only thank .......

I'm a little bummed about the lack (or length) of the extras, not simply for selfish reasons, but why is the band downplaying the importance of this tour? Calling it revolutionary is not an exaggeration. it would have been nice to see a retrospective documentary, with the band reflecting 15 years later, as well as people from other bands who may have their own thoughts about the show. You could also have other public personalities like Salman Rushdie, Bill Clinton, etc. all talking about how their own careers were affected by the tour. It was a cultural phenomenon, and should be recognized as such. An hour would barely be enough to cover all that went into the conceptualization, the design, the staging, the performing, the transporting, and the impact on the audience. That doesn't even include special things like the Sarajevo uplink, which could be a documentary on its own.

As for the clips from the 1992 Thanksgiving special, that guy running after Bono with the mic was so unbelievable annoying. The show itself was great, however, and the WHOLE THING should have been included as bonus material.

Nice to see the Interference docs though. For me, Bono yelling "Rock and roll doggie!" down to the fan on the street is one of the all-time priceless B-Man moments.

I can't wait to get this if for no other reason than when my VCR packed it in a couple of years ago, I didn't bother to replace it so this will be my first full ZooTV viewing in some time. The quality upgrade looks great to. The sound is what I'll be most interested in.

That's the moment that kicked me in the gut when I heard it the first time. As it was during the Dublin show broadcast, the transition was The First Time/BTBS/RTSS and Streets

Other moments I love are when Bono, as The Fly, says: "24 original super songs, and you get 'em free with every copy of Zoo TV!", and the George Bush Senior "We Will Rock You" bit.

Me, as well.

Ultraviolet is highly underrated. It's AB era's Mercy.

In the video for Achtung Baby, The Videos...etc. there is a running documentary throughout the video. It's basically a similar documentary that was aired on MTV during the Zoo TV Tour (first legs) and it contains a history mix and some interview and footage of the band during that time period. It's both interesting and strange and a must see. I'm glad it's finally coming to DVD.

Yes, the entire scene is included in 'Desire' from the Zoo TV Special, and in "A Fistful Of Zoo TV" Documentary -- complete with David Saltz talking as he comes on stage.

I'm definitely getting this! Question is regular edition or the special one? I should probably get the special one as this is one of the greatest tours ever!

Don't worry, I am going to sit there with my DVD remote control, typing in every possible mathematical combination of buttons, until I find an Ultraviolet easter egg. I'll let you know as soon as I find it.

No, that's not it.

It opens with the band en route to a radio show and then it segues into a montage of Zoo Achtung era clips after the dude on the radio station asks 'so what's been happening the last few months?' or something to that effect, and Bono's "whe-hey'' intro plays over the top of it. Awesome.

Then it goes into the history montage at some point, then band interviews. It's not extensive or anything, but it's defintely cool.
