ZOO TV and POPMART support acts

Hi Guys,

Does anybody have a list of acts who supported U2 during the Zoo TV/Zooropa and Popmart tours that they could post? I'm doing my media studies coursework on U2 during the 1990s and i'm looking for any information on who supported the band during time. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Fun Lovin' Criminals supported them on one leg of PopMart.
Oasis opened for them at the PopMart tour kickoff in Vegas.

I think Pearl Jam and Pixies both opened for them at times on Zoo TV, and Rage against the machine opened for them on Popmart.

I think that most of the PopMart bands have been name, but there were MANY for Zoo TV....

PJ Harvey
The Pixies
Pearl Jam
The Velvet Underground
Big Audio Dynamite II (I think...)
Disposable Heroes of Hip-Hoprisy
Public Enemy

There were many more, unless I'm mistaken; those are the only ones I can recount off the top of my head, though...

I was at the PopMart show in Paris. Placebo and Howie B opened for U2 that night. I guess Placebo opened a few of the PopMart European Leg shows.

I saw the Sugarcubes and Public Enemy supporting them in Oakland, California, on the Zoo TV tour, late-ish 1992, and then the Stereo MCs and Utah Saints as support in Cardiff on the Zooropa leg, summer 1993. Utah Saints were probably the worst band I've ever seen. Actually, delete the 'probably'.

I believe The Pixies opened all of the Zoo TV arena shows in the U.S. The U.S. Zoo TV stadium shows had Primus, Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy, B.A.D. II, The Sugarcubes and Public Enemy. There may have been a couple others.

The Zoo European shows had PJ Harvey, Pearl Jam, The Ramones, Stereo MC's among others.

Yeah Big Audio Dynamite II opened for U2 on the final leg of the ZooTV tour.

I think it was Sidewinder who opened during the PopMart tour.
