Have we done this?  Pick your top three official concert videos.  (Did not include R&H as it's more then just concert footage)

1 Slane
2 Red Rocks
3 Joshua Tree tour Paris

As much as I love ZOO TV, Iíve always thought Sydney was kind of a weak example of how good the tour was. I like the Outside Broadcast way more and it would have been number one but as you said, itís concert footage.

JT Paris is the outsider on this list. Very 80ís footage and all. But the band is in a good mood and the set list is great.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

You're forgiven. ha. I've edited the poll to allow people to change their votes...if anyone wants to.

Although a great tour the ZOOTV dvd failed to capture the spirit of the gigs IMO. JT Paris is spoilt by Bono being at his most over earnest. The vertigo dvd is awful. Havenít seen the others.

Isnít it incredible that they filmed that show so conventionally when at its core it was so unconventional ? Iím really not a fan of the Sydney DVD.
And no matter how professional they are, the no show of Adam the previous day didnít help the mood.

Still hoping they remaster the Washington 1992 concert video. IMO a better testimony of the tour.

I agree.

That Sydney dvd just doesnít work. I remember buying it at the time and feeling completely detached from the performance.

Red Rocks, Zoo TV and Slane Castle were my choices.

We really need the band to release DVDs for Boy Tour, October Tour and TUF Tour.

October might be a heavy lift...I mean, what's out there? The Rockpalast show and their set at Roskilde?

Picked the top three within a second of thinking.  Have never seen the Milan show.  Is that on DVD?

It was included as a bonus DVD in the deluxe edition of U218 Singles.

Other Pro-Shot October shows I can think of:

Werchter
Countdown
New York Ritz
Gateshead
