It was raining in Rotterdam, I remember.
I think it rained before the concert, but stopped almost the moment the band came on.
Yes, I was there!

*never saw himself in the video though*

Gaaah... now you make me want to watch the show EVEN MORE. I have the audio, but I haven't been able to find the VHS or DVD anywhere. Must. See. This. Now.

Popmart Mexico is fucking brilliant. It's unfortunate that so many of the critics will only remember Popmart for the Las Vegas opening, because (like all U2 tours, really) it just got better and better as it went along, and the Mexico City concert is a stunning example of how brilliant the tour really was. The Pop songs were so good live...really, really fucking good... (hint, hint).

The version you want on DVD is the one with the Black and White menu with the space baby in the background. That was created from a SVHS master of the complete showtime version of the show.

I wish they would have chopped Pride right out of the Mexico video. Bono's vocals are so glaringly awful, it makes the Baby Jesus cry.

I like how Bono is like shouting into the crowd while playing the guitar.

I need to find a copy of it... all the used record stores have gone out of business in Boston! I went to Saratoga NY and found JT, UF, and many many other records on vinyl but there's nowhere around here like that...

I just saw this for the first time a couple nights ago, from a VHS transfer, not great quality, but watchable. It's an amazing show without a doubt. If you haven't seen it, you need a copy of it.
