Y'know, I'm only recently an uberU2 fan. I fell in love to Slane, adore my Boston DVD. Rattle and Hum seems a trip into history. I recently acquired a Sydney ZooTV VHS. I didn't much care for it on the first viewing, I will admit. But I keep going back to it and loving it more and more.

And for a person who loathes fanfic/slash (sorry!).... everytime they play "Mysterious Ways" on this tape, I imagine an Edge inwardly-growling as Bono dances toward Morleigh, and I imagine him thinking "don't touch my woman, you bastard!" Even though... well I dunno when they even got together, but I do know they weren't married until a few years ago. Ah well... U2 grows on me more and more every day.

Now I just need The Unforgettable Journey, Red Rocks, and a PopMart concert...

**cracks up**
Edge met Morleigh on the set for the Numb video (she's the belly dancer there too) and then she joined them for the rest of the ZooTV tour (before that they had a different dancer). Not sure when they officially got together, but I'm guessing they had by the time of the Sydney show. One of the reasons they waited so long to get married was because Irish law wouldn't let Edge and Aislinn officially get divorced until 1996, even though they'd been seperated since 1991.
And you know, you're not alone in that Bono vs. The Edge thing. I always want to watch The Edge during that song, to see what sort of reaction he's having to Bono dancing with Morleigh. And you know, if you watch the choreography, Bono never actually touches her. Now the most probable reason for this is to fit a theme of reaching out for something you can't grasp, or something. But I like to say it's because Edge threatened him with bodily harm if he did XD

Also, if you have the Best Of 1990-2000 video, there's this great Mofo remix video taken from various PopMart shows. In it you can see Morleigh again as the belly dancer, only this time, she's quite pregnant with Edge's kid =P

I'll have to admit I haven't seen that one yet. When I purchased it, I got it for the videos, and I used to loathe live-footage videos. Nooot anymore, so I'll have to go back and look. :-D

The one downside is that it's edited for language (as it's the explicit mix of Mofo). It makes it a lot less enjoyable that way, because it's all cut up. I mean, as much as I love to hear Bono saying fuck, I'd prefer "suck" over dead air.

I have the popmart tour and red rocks. ZooTV is one of my favorites but the video's kinda worn from watching it so much so i think it's time to invest in a new one. Does anyone know if u2 has their concert videos like rattle and hum, popmart, and red rocks on dvd?

There are rumors going out that Red Rocks, ZooTV and Popmart are going to be released on DVD in some sort of DVD box at the end of the year. But that's a rumor sadly... I hope they do it! I *still* haven't seen Red Rocks! :(

I thought I once saw a PopMart on DVD on eBay. It came in a jewel case though, like one version of Slane that is out now. As far as RedRocks, I doubt it's on DVD yet. Whether the above-mentioned rumors are true or not, they pretty much HAVE to catch out and come up with DVDs at some point.

That's the Hasta La Vista, Baby! recording from the Popmart concert, but not an actual DVD, unfortunately. Nothing, unfortunately, is on DVD except for Boston, Slane and R&H, the first two of which I need to get extra copies because mine have become scratched. =( Too much love.

Nah, it wasn't HLVB. It actually had the cover-work of Bono... kicking? I guess that's what he's doing? Giving us a massive crotch-shot.

But, y'know, it was probably someone who converted it from a tape and selling it for themselves. In all reality, you could get ANY of their taped concerts on DVD, just to the legit versions...

Actually, it looks like I'm wrong. Apparently there's a Popmart VCD from Hong Kong! http://www.u2wanderer.org/disco/vid006.html

I actually got a DVD/VCR combo for Christmas 2 years ago. A profound lover of Disney, I had oodles of tapes. I since sold them and bought DVD versions of everything availabe. I had forsaken VHS forever.... until I needed to have U2, and wasn't gonna pay for a bootleg thrown together in someone's garage. ;-)
