Outside Broadcast in DC- DVD recording

how was this recorded? it's obviously unofficial, but it look sreally professional, and at times you can see camera men on stage even. so how was this recorded? was it originally being planned as a video release, and then scrapped, and ulitmately leaked to us now? was it some really profession bootlegging fans? was it recorded for a tv special?

Well my friend, the video screens were a big feature of Zoo TV. EVERY show was filmed regardless of intention of it being broadcast or not.

but it looks lile it was really professionaly edited together (like the flashing numbers on screen during the end of Until). is this merely a fan making this, or was it leaked out of U2's camp?

I have this and I'm sure it was broadcast on US television, possibly MTV or something.

This show was never shown on TV in the US (or anywhere else that I know of).

It is pro-shot and pro-edited. Most likely leaked from the U2 camp.

...and I'm in it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is it really good? As in, better than the Syracuse JT boot?

I'm thinking about downloading it, but obviously it's massive, and I'd prefer that it be very good quality if I'm going to be downloading it.

Its not better than JT Syracuse.

Another way to see that it was not broadcast is that after almost every song the screen goes black. The quality is good but the actual performace is pretty average. U2 had a bad night.

The quality of the picture is very good BUT the direction of this concert is cold and lacking any atmosphere - maybe that's why it was never shown as I reckon it was all ready to be broadcasted but pulled by the band/management as it didn't capture the feel of ZOO TV (which Sydney and the ZOO TV US special certainly DO!)

This is what I have 'heard' but if anyone has any better info on this then please post here.

I actually prefer the audio boot

I'm fairly new to learning about the ZooTV tour but what exactly is the Zoo TV U.S. Special that you're speaking of? I'd appreciate any information about it.

I have the Wash., D.C. ZooTV bootleg being discussed and U2 did seem a little 'off' that night especially on New Year's Day. Still, it's a nice momento to have an American video of ZooTV. I'd take a Desire/Ultraviolet encore to a Crashed Car/Lemon any day although the Zooropa leg's Mr. MacPhisto was pretty cool.

There are a couple of good performances, but Bono seems possessed (or on something) if you ask me.

Yeah...it just wasn't a good night. Worst "Bad" to date in this show, I think...and a few other things, like New Years Day.

And WHAT?? Daddy's Gonna Pay/Lemon is way better than Desire/Ultraviolet. Though Mirrorball Man's version is better than MacPhisto's.

And the ZooTV special was show in the U.S. on Thanksgiving Day 1992, and featured about half of a ZooTV set interspersed with various interviews and random stuff.

It was shown here in the UK on Channel 4 and I taped it straight off the broadcast (smug). Great picture but it's in mono - it WAS 1992 y'know!

As well as other performances it contains an awesome full version of BTBS>RTSS - the audio of this performance of BTBS>RTSS can be found on the Outside Broadcast bootleg in excellent sound quality - even though the Outside Broadcast bootleg is from a radio show and NOT this TV broadcast, the original recordings are from the same concert/source.
