Can't wait to get this...

"Well, I've never actually SEEN this show, but I've heard it. During the Zoo TV era, U2 reinvented themselves (not the first time, nor would it be the last) and it turned a lot of those "I used to listen to 'War' all the time in college" fans off to U2 and created comments like, "they haven't done anything good since 'Joshua Tree'." I don't see why. The Zoo TV era, whose music included Achtung Baby and Zooropa, is some of the best U2 ever. Now if only a Popmart DVD would be released...

Here's what's on the DVD from (which I think was taken from the U2 site):

Filmed at the Football Stadium in Sydney, Australia, in November 1993. As well as the legendary live show, now digitally remastered, the new release comes with a bonus DVD of live tracks, mini-documentaries and the inimitable `Video Confessional'.

Great Live Show

"U2 fans will never forget the phenomenon that was known as Zoo TV. Zoo TV was a massively produced world tour that took rock band U2 all over the world. Long time fans may remember that they performed at the MTV Music Video Awards with Dana Carvey via satellite during the MTV Video Music Awards. The tour was in support of the groups 1991 album Achtung Baby.

It's surprising that such a well loved tour took so long to arrive on DVD. U2 Zoo TV Live From Sidney is now available on DVD for the first time. The single disc release includes a full color booklet and arrives in a special hard protective case. The concert that appears on the DVD was recorded on November 27th, 1993, a month before U2 wrapped up the nearly two year long tour.

U2 performed some of their biggest hits during this performance. Songs such as "New Years Day," "Pride (In the Name Of Love)," "With Or Without You," and "Where The Streets Have No Name," are among the hit songs performed during the concert.

U2 Zoo TV Live From Sidney has a running time of one hour and 56 minutes. The picture and sound quality are awesome. You really feel like you are at the concert when watching the show. The color booklet includes a 2006 forward written by Adrian Deevoy.
Blew my mind

"I was a newbie to U2 when I first rented a VHS copy of this concert. I am not exaggerating when I say that this show blew my mind, sparked my long-running obsession with U2, and expanded my interest in popular music. I only really knew the Joshua Tree when I saw this and I was completely surprised to see Bono strutting around in black leather (or sequined gold) suits. The concept is a genius overload of information, until the earnest U2 slices right through. One/Unchained Melody and Running To Stand Still/Where The Streets Have No Name are particularly memorable moments. The whole thing is exhilarating and dramatic like musical theater, except is actually good."
The greatest live performance by any band on DVD

"This concert DVD rocks!! I owned the VHS copy and watched it many, many times. And everytime I watch it I got chills. And I still do with this DVD. It's simply amazing. The stage set and lights and sound are perfect and the band is scarily amazing. This was made at a time when U2 were at the top of their game. "Mysterious Ways", "Until the End of the World", and "Running to Stand Still" are live masterpieces. I have seen many bands live and none of them can equal the emotional intensity and ferocity of U2. Every emotion on the spectrum is showcased in their live shows and on this DVD. I was forever changed after seeing them live. I recommend seeing them in concert but if for any reason you can't, this DVD is the quickest way to bliss. Highly Recommended!!"
