And just as with the ZOODVD, there'll be single- and double-disc versions.

I'm ESPECIALLY interested in seeing the bonus live videos from Rotterdam and Edmonton. The Last Night on Earth remix video should be interesting, too, considering how creepaliciously weird the song is on its own, sans visuals.

[EDIT: Forgot to mention -- the release date is (allegedly) June 25th/26th.]

The Edmonton footage has circulated for years, it's pretty good, but nowhere near as cool as some of the South American footage from early 1998. Not sure why they didn't use those...Santiago, Sau Paulo, and Johannesburg were all filmed and broadcast on TV, and are well worth seeing. They're not markedly different from any other shows (since all PopMart shows were basically the same), but the energy from the crowd in those countries is unmatched anywhere in the world (at least from what I can tell watching on a screen)

Looking forward to the Rotterdam tunes though, I've never seen those. And a remastered Mexico City show...the last filmed U2 show that wasn't ruined by Hamish Hamilton. David Mallet did an amazing job directing ZooTV and PopMart, the guy should get a fucking Oscar award for them.
