U2 Lovetown Sydney TV Broadcast (with Hawkmoon!)
« on: July 07, 2020, 07:19:36 PM »
Pretty average quality (this was high-def back in the day, kids!), and it gets annoying when songs are interrupted by snippets of the band and other stuff, but HAWKMOON (and Larry laughing)! This broadcast was also released in high schools as the "U2 talks about sex" education video. U2 need to get hold of the tape and remaster this. Also includes Bono solo playing Slow Dancing in a studio.

The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

It's wonderful...
Sometimes I’m full of anger and grieving, so far away from believing that any sun will reappear

The way Hawkmoon opens the show = goosebumps... The interviews with random street people interrupting the songs are bloody annoying though.

My first U2 show was on Lovetown. It's too bad there isn't a full broadcast show available on video. Great bootlegs, though.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

I know I don’t often post (more of a lurker) but thanks for the link! I don’t think I’ve ever seen this and it’s in their best 10 year stretch (IMO) 1987-97.(JT to Pop) Looking forward to watching it.
Cheers
Jon

You’ll love it Jon. You can really see how this broadcast set up their new direction with AB and Zoo TV. I’ve never heard sex and U2 talked about so much since Riffy saw Adam’s Achtung Baby photo shoot.

Just finished watching it. WOW! Absolutely amazing footage and performances. You are right in the connection to ZooTV. The cutting between the Berlin Wall & Tiananmen Square reminded of the cuts from the ZooTV Interference video.

Videos like this remind me of why I love the band. I remember seeing Rattle and Hum in the theatre and this video was like experiencing it again for the first time. (ZooTV Montreal was my first U2 concert and I’ve have seen each tour since).

I’m off to seek out ZooTV greatness now that I’ve seen this amazing footage- or at least rewatch the incredible Hong Kong Pop Mixes that this forum introduced to me a while ago- I think the member who praised it was an tha?

Thanks again!
Jon

Sex sex sex that's all this band thinks about
