OK so I can finally upgrade from the old VHS copy of one of the most mindblowing concerts ever... especially having been there on the night!!

U2's study in values, the TV generation and the power of that media was a gem!!.... From the big screen TV's, substation under the stage and the german trabant cars suspended overhead to Bono's Macphisto character and the nightly satellite phone call and tuning in to local tv...

‘Zoo TV Live From Sydney’ is set for DVD release in September. 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’.

Filmed at the Football Stadium in Sydney, Australia, in November 1993 - and now only available on something called VHS – the film is directed by David Mallet and produced by Ned O’Hanlon and Rocky Oldham.
