The Ultimate Test
13 July 2002 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

No matter how many popularity lists (that can be manipulated) or awards a rock band can be in or get, their ultimate test will ALWAYS BE a live performance. In this video U2 shows the grip they have over their fans and how the fans feed them back by following their songs. If you want to see state-of-the-art tech, check out their stage featuring the biggest screen in the world and the biggest stage ever built for a world tour. U2: Popmart Live from from Mexico City is a great example of the perfect concert. It has the ingredients: Greatest rock band + super stage production + great fans.

The only down for this video is the picture quality (VHS), it is poor by the year it was released (1998) and compared to other live videos like U2 Zoo TV Live from Sidney (1994), or Pink Floyd's PULSE (1995) it kind of leaves you expecting better picture quality. If there is ever a DVD for this concert, I hope they fix those technical problems and round up the quality.
