It's not perfect - the sound mix could be better and the shows from the first leg of the tour may be stronger, partly because the MacPhisto shtick from this leg isn't as funny as you'd hope - but this is the best of their concert DVD's. For my money, this was their greatest tour as U2 had just reinvented themselves, coming up with the best music of their formidable careers. Furthermore, the self-importance that their marred their previous world tour (as seen in "Rattle and Hum") is now gone, replaced with a refreshing a sense of humor, MacPhisto aside. This was also their most visually ambitious show at the time, and unlike some later tours, it doesn't overwhelm the band - the sensory overload fits the music perfectly - and it's one of the most memorable aspects of these shows, so it's fortunate to have at least one of them well-documented for posterity.

One of U2 most successful tours ever. The ZOO TV tour is a musical and eye spectacular. With U2 pumping out their hits from the Achtung Baby and Zooropa albums plus the previous hits make for a fun show. U2 shows why their tours are a must see. A great musical movie for any rocker or U2 fan to see.

The greatest tour of all time. The greatest concert film of all time.

U2's embrace of irony in the 1990s is seen in full force on this film of a concert on their groundbreaking Zoo TV Tour. The band play their classics plus strong tracks from then-recent albums Achtung Baby and Zooropa. The visuals are great, and the band give every song their full energy, making for an enjoyable concert film for any music fan.
