Regarding 'Until The End of The World' Video From Best Of

I just watched the live video of 'Until The End of the World' from the Best Of 1990s DVD, and I remembered how much I prefer this version to the Zoo TV one. I like the sound, the editing, and the energy better. It feels more raw, perhaps because this wasn't 2 years into the tour (like Sydney).

Does a full video of this concert exist? I know at the beginning of the video they make reference to the Wim Wenders movie...so is this just footage shot for that film 'Until The End of the World'? I really wish there were a full video of this concert. I've watched this video 3 times back to back. Such a great performance.

"IS THIS ROCK AND ROLL!?"

Damn, U2 were just oozing cool back then.

I have some seperate songs in video format from the concert. The songs are split up with zootv "interference" and they don't line up with eachother

Half of it unfortunatly also has forign voiceovers which obscures a really great version of desire for instance BP - what is your vision??? what is your vision??? Bono - TELEVISION!!!

The date i've got is 28-11-92 although i don't know where else to find it. If anyone has the whole movie i'd be ery interested

I can post a YSI link if you like for a zipped up file of what i have

I don't know the exact date of the concert itself, but it was aired on Fox on Thanksgiving weekend, 1992. I still have the original videotape. It was called Zoo TV, the Last American Broadcast. In fact, I'm not even sure the concert footage that aired was all from the same night. There is a montage of scenes during Tryin' to Throw Your Arms Around the World, so that one is definitely clips from several shows. But I don't know if the other songs all came from the same show or not.

That date is totally wrong, as the final 1992 leg of ZooTV ended on 1992-11-25 in Mexico City.

I know there's full video of 1992-08-16, Washington DC, and then there is a special, I think it's called ZooTV Featuring U2, containing footage of some other live tracks, but I forget what show it's sourced from. I have the footage but I haven't watched it in ages. I'm sure someone like Blue Room knows what I'm talking about.

ok guys......

its not all from the same show, its from afew different shows.....

its from the special that was aired back in 92, and theres 2 versions (the US first broadcast, which is less complete and the Europe broadcast with a lot of "interference" and other shit in between the songs and i think one or 2 more songs. the other difference is the US source is better quality)

in all its an interesting thing 2 watch, some completely random things on there but in all its good.

tracklisting:

Zoo station
The Fly
Even better then the real thing
Mysterious ways
Until the end of the world
Tryin to throw your arms around the world
When love comes to town
satalite of love
Bullet in the blue sky
running to stand still
where the streets have no name (cuts out to interference, the editors must not have thought streets was a good enough song )
half of wild horses (not actually U2, its a cover band miming)
Desire
final ever telephone call to bush

if anybody wants to get the europe source, its on a dvd called "English TV features volume 4"

its really worth getting , hope that helped

I think the 11-28-92 date is the date the show aired on TV.

I couldn't remember the exact date for sure...all I know is that when I taped it, I left the commercials in, and it's pretty damn funny to go back now and watch commercials for movies and TV shows that were out in the fall of 1992.

i may be wrong here, but i do believe the "until the end of the world" video on the best of is taken from Yankee Stadium. i'll have to go back and watch it again, but i'm pretty sure it's yankee stadium.

The majority of "Tryin to Throw Your Arms..." (minus the brief montage in the middle) was from the Dallas show. I've often wondered which (if any) of the other performances were also from that show. They did the whole interview/"I have a vision" bit in Dallas as well during Desire. The thing is, we didn't hear any audio from the interviewer through the PA, so for some time we were perplexed as to what the hell was going on during that song. Who was the random guy coming out on stage for a few seconds and sticking a mic in Bono's face? It wasn't until we saw the Fox special a month or so later that it all made sense. However, I've never been able to fully determine whether or not that clip is specifically from Dallas or not.

i know that theres footage from the NY yankee show trying to throw your arms around the world, that girl they interview after the song in the red baree was the girl from the NY show, i know this cause the wild horses video had its live sections from that show, and u can see her briefly on that........

??? Not sure what girl you're referring to.

I'm talking about the Fox/Phillips-DCC special that aired around Thanksgiving '92. During "Tryin to Throw..." he brings a petite girl on stage with a white shirt, long black hair, and vaguely Asian-ish features. Much to our amusement at the show, she seemed to keep pointing the Handicam at Bono's crotch (however, you don't really see this on the special.) We were right near the catwalk for that show and the whole thing took place right in front of us.

In the special, after the song, the interviewer asks her "what were you focusing on up there?" to which she repies "his d**k!" Hehe.

Anyway, I'm not just "pretty sure" about this. That performance is 100%, unquestionably, without-a-doubt from Dallas. In fact my friends and I were calling each other the night the special aired, after that song, thrilled that our show was included.

I know that some months later Mtv aired an alternate version of the same special. The big differences being the inclusion of Mysterious Ways, a lengthier version of Streets (although it's still only part of the song), the talk-show/U2-impersonator footage, Adam's stalker wearing nightvision goggles (???), more cutaways to the pseudo interviewer/tv-crew, and some satirical ZooTV "commercials".

I've got both versions on tape around here somewhere. It could be that on the Mtv version, they speak to a different girl after "Tryin to Throw...". But if memory serves, it's the exact same performance of "Tryin to Throw" as in the Fox special.

Little known trivia: There is footage at the end of the Fox special of Bono as the mirrorball man walking around and driving (in a mirrorball Trabant) in Times Square with a megaphone, street-preaching and throwing around Zoo dollars. He is accompanied by a Bono imposter in black-leather Fly gear and goggles. The imposter is actually Wynona Ryder.
