Thirteen years ago Mexico City was the scene of a legendary live show by U2.

PopMart was the tour, and that 'sci-fi disco supermarket' was caught for ever in the DVD PopMart (Live From Mexico City).

One of the stand-out tracks on the 1997 tour was Even Better Than The Real Thing, recently reimagined to open U2 360° in South America.

Here's what Even Better Than The Real Thing was like on PopMart.

Hint?
I hope the reference to PopMart in Mexico is a hint that the band will play a 360 debut of some songs from Pop at these shows! It is now the only album that is unrepresented on this tour.

I am ready for ..besides a laughing gas... a heavy dose of Achtung baby´s song for the may 14th concert. I won´t get cute about POP, not so interested but for Achtung. We can embrace all the great songs you want to throw at us. My favorites are: Horses, So Cruel, Ultraviolet and Acrobat. Will be a fantastic dream come true!!

POPSMART!
The PopMart Tour with its spectacular stage design was one of the most exciting chapters of U2;s history. Wearing extravagant clothes the band delivered some thrilling and expressive performances. The unbelievable size of the videoscreen and some crazy accessory such as the silver lemon represented an era full of innovative and daring experiments with sounds and visuals. Every show seemed to be a huge, colourful and dazzling celebration of music and art. I think the current 360 stage would be suitable for some great "Pop" tracks such as "Discotheque", "Mofo" and "Gone". The stunning video of "Even Better Than The Real Thing" shows Bono;s breathtaking passion as a performer once again. Under the glittering surface of the whole spectacle the true heart and soul of U2 is always sensible, because every song definitely means much more than just "sliding down the surface of things"!

It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time - we're one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We're sure he'll make a full recovery soon, so we'll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.
