Next Up - Mexico!
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.

Hello Mexico from Brazil
I hope you’ll have the same great time as we had here in Brazil last month. The 360 degree tour is amazing and the 360 degree stage design really let us see the band from anywhere. U2 rocks!!!!!! Happy Birthday, Bono….

I went to the 2nd. concert from Vertigo 2006 in the Azteca Stadium.I think people knew all the songs and lsang even louder than in 1997 and 1992 .Every time the band comes it gets better. Hopefully they would play UV and No Line on May 14th., although Bad is also one of my all time favorites.

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.
