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.

I was there
Ese POP MART TOUR en el Foro Sol, estar ahí fue increible y excepcional y mucho mejor fue ser parte de ese Evento que quedo plasmado en un grandioso DVD, muestra del cariño y vibra que U2 y México sienten mutuamente. Simplemente fantastico.... Espero quede plasmado algún video en su paso por Tierras Aztecas De eso, no tengo la menor duda..... Saludos a todos y buena vibra

marvelous night
yeah, that was a great night, i was 16 and that was my very first U2 show, "a good show" i thought, but now has become to me in one of the best u2's performances over time. One of the things I remember is that I was blown away by the clarity of the sound at Foro Sol, unfortunately the Azteca stadium lacks of this quality but what it loses in acoustic it gains in intensity. I can't wait for the upcoming show!!

This country has changed much since the PopMart, Vertigo Tour was a long awaited return, which gave us the best nights of our lives, now missing only 15 days and I can not believe they return home

" Eso es Mexico "
I was in that show. Bono speaking a little spanish : " Hola Mexico...muchos trafico.." Again , like in the ZooTV tour, the lighters made a milky way with the sound of New Year´s Day. Please bring back No Line and UV to the set list. Waiting for May 14th !
